The Skirt Length Theory speculates that the length of a woman's skirt is a (somewhat foolish) predictor of which direction the stock market will turn. That is to say, "shorter skirts tend to appear in times when general consumer confidence and excitement is high... ." Conversely, "long skirts are worn more in times of fear and general gloom." Obama says the economy is heading north. Hemlines are heading south (check out page 3). Who's right? Either way, I'm hoping that wearing a mini skirt won't be "faux pas" this spring.
P.S. The dress on the left is from Derek Lam's Spring 2011 collection.
