The skirt may be the next fad

Well, this is exciting news. Reuters reports yesterday that the skirt may be the next big clothing trend, following the eventual waning of the ubiquitous dress. I actually love wearing dresses as much as skirts and blouses, particularly in cold weather--keeps the waist warmer!--but it would be nice to see choices of both in stores. Why does it always have to be one or the other: skirts or dresses?

"The skirt is such a conversation. All the stores are talking about it -- 'Will it hit, when will it hit?'" said Krissy Meehan, head of wholesale sales for Urban Outfitters Inc's Free People line.

"Everyone's stocking skirts just to see what happens. Everyone's playing back-up," says another buyer.

The article then goes on to say that skirts might not be the next trend: The Next Big Thing just might be pants or...shorts. Pshaw!
