    Are ankle-length boots appropriate for office wear.. I have a one in camel and would like to know if it is apt for a office wear..

      Hi Neha, It depends on 1) how conservative your office is and 2) the style of bootie. Choose a sleek, streamline bootie over a rugged bootie that may be distressed, or an edgy bootie with too much hardware.
      In casual offices you can get away with more, but in businesses dealing with finance and accounting you would want a very elegant bootie that almost looks like a shoe and you’d want a dark bootie with dark matching hose. Hope that helps. Cheers, Deborah

    I’m not sure short skirts should be an automatic “no no” after forty. I have good looking legs at 56. They are one of the few body parts that are still holding up. Wearing a short skirt makes me feel young, confident and sexy. Short skirts are not for everyone but if you have the legs for it why not?

      Hi Carol, Yes that’s a general rule. If you have great legs up to a couple of inches above the knee is fine. You just don’t want to be wearing a mini that ends at mid thigh!

    You mentioned over the knee boots are not age appropriate at the office. What about in a casual setting? I have a grey pair of nine west boots with about a 2 or 3 ” chunky heel that I didn’t wear last year because I was worried about whether or not they were in fact age appropriate. I am toying with getting them shortened, but am worried it may ruin them. I am 56. What is your verdict on this one. I am still sitting on the fence!

      Hi Deb, You can certainly wear them in a casual setting. Do not try to shorten them, you are right it will ruin them. Enjoy and have fun in them..they can be sexy and hip!

        Deb, get off the fence. I too have a pair of black otk boots (Sam Edelman..so cute) and I went through the same angst as you with regard to wearing them with jeans/jeggings etc. I must agree with Glam Gal Deb on this one, wear them! Just remember to “own” the look, everything looks better with confidence. By the way, don’t be surprised at all the compliments you and your boots will receive.
