A few months back I was reading in a Vogue article that skirt lengths rise and fall with the financial market. They were at their shortest during the prosperous Twenties and Sixties. In the poorer Thirties they fell. The recession of the Nineties also created a friendly environment for long skirts. It’s difficult to explain what meaning designers put into this, but it’s a historical fact.
However, another thing is easy to notice – in 2017 skirts would feature a zigzagging hemline more frequently than expected. I guess it has something to do with the uncertain times we live in.
“Hemlines have always had an emotional resonance.”,
claims the article. So, we can assume emotions in 2017 are kind of unstable and zigzagging. Whatever the theory, I still believe one should wear whatever they feel comfortable in. Whatever a zigzagging hemline means, I like it. It’s fun, comfy and ideal for those warm seasons. This print Tom Tailor dress only proves it!

How do you feel about zigzagging hemlines? Do you like them? What do you think about the theory that there’s a connection between skirt length and financial markets?
