The skirt has seen so many variations of length from the lady like, full skirt of the 50s to the mid length cut of the 70s and the super short hemlines of the 80s and 90s respectively.
In today’s culture, it’s emphasized that sex sells and shock value keeps people wanting more. So the question is how short can you go? Check out some short looks from your favorite celebs below and tell us what you think…too short or just enough + is there an age limit for certain lengths?
