So it looks like I am not going to be at the forefront of fashion this year. As I mentioned in another post, everyone seems to be wearing shorts and tights and I’m sticking with my penchant for skirts, stockings – now and then – and short-skirted dresses. I don’t think that I’ve ever really been a fashion follower, at least not in what I wear, even when the fashion has been inspiring, but I just don’t feel quite so comfortable in shorts.
Admittedly, shorts can be very appealing indeed and draw the roving eye to shapes and sizes, to rounds and curves, to that wonderful swaying, sexy movement a young woman has whenever she happens to be walking along in front of you, no doubt about it. But there is something enticing, something far more eye-catching about a short skirt.
Perhaps it’s that little bit of danger involved; the chance that a gust of wind will show off considerably more than a roving eye might normally expect to see. Perhaps it’s the feeling of having something lighter, something loose rather than fabric which could, even when some find it equally inspiring, crinkle up and reveal shapes and forms better left to the imagination – someone told me that this is a Camel-toe effect, and I know exactly what they mean!
There is that little bit of danger not just because you can go out without any panties on, but because no one can see – without that chance gust – whether you’re taking the chance or not. With shorts you have the line of panties and, often, the hem of a t-shirt or blouse which, when hastily tucked in, can be uncomfortable or need constant adjustment.
Shorts with pockets, and then the need to use them and everything loses its shape, or the cut isn’t quite right. It’s the same with all fashion clothing, though, what looks good on the hanger in a shop, or good on a model who has had the clothing fitted around her, doesn’t necessarily create the same effect when we slip into them.
And why bother searching for the right panties when you’re wearing shorts, any old pair will do because no one is likely to see them; only the line and that partially hidden by tights over the top.
Yes, I am definitely a stockings woman too; either those wonderful ones which grip and stay in place – mostly – or with the full suspender belt and garters. With a skirt a woman can really go to town, in every sense of the word.
We need to leave a little bit to the imagination too; every one of us has a different shape which a skirt can cater for far better than any shorts on the market.
And that goes for dresses too, which are far more adaptable. I’m not going to be wearing shorts when I go out in the evening, when we go to the theatre or a movie.
And, naturally, there is also that quick moment. That moment when you and your lover – male and female – just want to do it, want to play, want to be a little more intimate. Shorts just don’t have it: dropping shorts for a quick bit of fun, holding them around your knees, restricting your movement.
No. It doesn’t matter what the fashion world may demand of us this year, I’m sticking with my short-skirted dresses and my skirts.
Love & Kisses, Viki.
