Q. Are leggings still acceptable? I am 40-something with quite a few dresses that I think are too short for someone my age to wear without pants or leggings. Love the dresses, but not sure how to wear them.
A. Why do you own so many short dresses? Are they from several years ago when you felt more confident sporting a view of your legs above the knees? It’s fine to wear leggings once in a while with dresses, but not as a routine. So keep only your absolute favorite short styles and donate the rest to consignment, a younger friend or a charity run thrift shop. And start buying dresses that don’t require leg coverage all the time.
