Hmmm. Ann Taylor pencil skirt, 22" from waist to hem. Banana Republic sleek suit skirt, 21 1/2". J Crew suit skirt, 21".
When kneeling, my natural waist is 25-26" from the floor. Guess I fail that test.
I've never seen any business wear at any of those three places that would border inappropriate that test is dumb. They're probably 3 of the best places to find something affordable and interview worthy. Do some women really have such bad judgement as to wear a mini skirt to a job interview?!
At my high school we had to put our arms straight down for the "fingertip" test but it wasn't regularly enforced. In fact, if you were in shape (re: fat not jiggling out of your jorts- this is Kentucky after all) they didn't care but they always busted those referred to in the parentheses. Our school was so freaking cold though I can't understand why girls would wear such tiny clothes to begin with.
