So I was in a shop trying on a pencil skirt. The hem fell about 2 inches above my knee. Now granted a pencil skirt usually falls about the knee, but since I am 5'11 the hemline is a good bit higher than on other women. The sales clerk remarked, not unkindly, that women my age usually don't show that much of their legs. I bought it anyway, but it got me to thinking. Is it undignified for a 56 year old woman to wear their skirts above the knee?
