Ladies, we need to talk.
The skirt over the pants thing. It's not working. Really it never worked, but we were willing to let it slide for awhile because you're your own people, and you need the space to make your own mistakes and learn and grow from them. We just figured that at some point you'd realize how dumb the whole thing looks and give it up on your own, but so far that's not happening, so we need to go against our better judgment and intervene on behalf of sanity.
Seriously, the skirt over the pants move looks dumb. It makes you look like four-year-olds playing dress-up in mommy's closet. Just pick one or the other and go with it.
Obviously exceptions can be made for those tops that come down to well below the waist, but still aren't long enough to make an effective skirt. You can wear pants under those.
I'm glad we had this talk. I hope you'll really take some of what's been said to heart.
