How short is too short?

Women are often judged on what they wear. Either it’s too short, too revealing, too provocative, too loud, too tight or just inappropriate. Public shaming of women wearing too little or too much is on the rise, yet young women are adamant that they are NOT just about how they dress. It’s a worldwide issue but is it right to judge someone about their personal worth based on how they choose to explore fashion. If fashion is a form of self expression, does this kind of critique help a woman? Yet social norms deem otherwise. Here’s what Gyanendra Malla have to say on this topic.

Despite the fact that we live in a modern world, the society we live in has not yet completely evolved and transformed especially when it comes to judging a woman’s outfit. Personally, I feel the dress should be below the thigh and not so open. There is nothing wrong in wearing a short dress but one has to be conscious about the place and event. Not everyone has the right intention or thoughts. I support the fact that everyone has a right to wear whatever they desire and one can’t be judged according to the length of his/her outfit. Yet I firmly believe one has to dress keeping in mind the environment. Also there is a difference between wearing short dresses and vulgar and inappropriate outfits.
