Mini skirts are out if you are over 45 with one exception. A mini skirt worn with dark opaque tights or leggings can work if you are 45 or older and have a good figure. In general most women over 40 have unattractive knees. To look your best you don’t want to show off any part of your body that is ugly. As you grow older the less skin you show the better. After you reach 40 the most flattering skirt length is at mid knee or a little higher if you have good-looking legs or a little lower than knee-length if you are taller.
Heel Heights and Hemlines for Business

Show Some Skin
Show some skin? She was so determined to put the shoulder where it belonged. She said ‘women have very round shoulders that push forward slightly; this touches me and I say one must not hide that!” Here, an icon speaks-Coco Chanel that is. She speaks on the subtle, sometimes underestimated but very powerful sleek shoulders. It’s a feminine curve we seldom speak of; the fabulous and flirty shoulder. It was only a few fashion moments ago that we were inspired or shall I say reminded by Beyonce wearing Roberto Cavalli’s off the shoulder yellow ruffle gown—oh how we drooled over the sensual radiance that comes with exposing those feminine shoulders. This moment in fashion time pushed the shoulder movement forward and encouraged us to expose a hint of skin.
