That Long Skirt

They say a skirt's lengths has a lot to do with economy; that longer skirts meant poor economy as during historic days, women wore long skirts to hide their cheap stockings or lack of stockings. Hemlines were long in 1929 and during the successive years when we had the Great Depression.

However, there are others who outrightly dismiss the theory. Some say that economists start talking about this theory once the market stops making any sense! There was this recent article that said that women are wearing short skirts to feel better even if the economy hurt. 

So, do long skirts mean bad times? With so many styles of skirts everywhere, I don't know if the helmline theory still holds true, but long skirts are back. They really are. And they look so nice even if they are paired with a simple tee, accessorized or unaccessorized.    

When I saw this Fab India skirt for the first time, I bought it in 2 minutes I guess, without even trying it! Fab India has some amazing stuff for everyone. Love the timeless look of their clothes. I have heard they have this skirt in more colours these days. I am longing for some grey or brown now :)

  24. very lovely outfit :) the skirt is great!!

    and I don't think the theory fits anymore - do nowadays women think about economy when dressing?

  36. Pencil skirts have a simple silhouette that sets with the curves of the body, and range from knee-length to calf-length or right up to the ankle.
