Skirts Length and the Markets

Hemline/Skirt Length Indicator

This theory suggests that the direction of the economy can be predicted based upon the average length of hems in that year’s new fashion lines. If skirts are short, markets are on the rise. Conversely, if skirts are long, markets are heading down.

The rationale is that longer skirts are worn when general consumer confidence is low, demonstrating fear and lacked spending. When skirts are short, consumer optimism and confidence is high, indicating a bullish market.

I hope you splurge on stockings too... keeping at least the appearance of modesty.

Re: Skirts Length and the Markets

Wasn't somebody saying the same thing a few years back about the length of neck ties? When the men were wearing them long (past their belt) it meant something to the economy and when they were wearing them short (which, in my opinion, looked ridiculous) it meant something else. Someone told me that once and I thought then how ridiculous a thing it was to say. Now, CNBC is saying it?! Must be a slow news day.

Should have stated how ridiculous I thought that looked also. Oh well.
