They say the shoulders are the last to go and for many, their calves are the same. I haven’t worn shorts for years but I do like to wear skirts and dresses. Today I’m sharing the lengths and tools I use to keep them looking their best.
Love them or hate them they aren’t the same legs we dressed in our 20’s. I’m fortunate that mine are still shapely, (from the knee down) but they’re definitely a different shape.
Pants are an obvious fix for many of us but I’m going to focus on bare legs today.
Gone are the days when short skirts are flattering on me. The skin above my knees has sagged so I have loose skin that I prefer to cover. This skirt is as short as I’ll wear these days unless I’m wearing opaque tights.
Having your skirt hemmed to where your leg narrows helps them look more shapely and slimmer. This skirt is a longer version of the stretch pencil skirt and hits just below the knee which is also very flattering.
My calves are a nice proportion but have a few varicose and spider veins that I like to hide. I seldom wear dark pantyhose anymore so I use a self-tanner to “tan” them slightly. My favorite is Jergen’s Natural Glow, which is lightweight, subtle and builds slowly so never gives me strange colored ankles.
Some women struggle with their thighs rubbing together. I have a tip that
does may sound strange but works! A quick swipe of stick deodorant on your inner thighs provides relief by helping your skin slide without sticking.
What tips can you share that work for you?
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
