I basically concur. The general pattern, as has been mentioned, appears to be a peak of skirt/dress wearing during the summer, especially the hottest days of summer. As the weather morphs into autumn/turns chilly, damp and grey, few women wear skirts/dresses.

On the other hand, during the milder, dry sunny days of autumn, a few more women may wear skirts/dresses. Often with some type of obvious leggings, such as tights.

I will watch to see if there is a similar pattern next spring.

If the blob of warm water (see yesterday's post on the Cliff Mass weather blog site) off our coast remains in place, like it did during the 2013-2015 timeframe, we might see more around here than usual.
Skirted since 2/2002, kilted 8/2002-8/2011, and dressed since 9/2013...

Our local Primark (UK Chain store) yesterday had the biggest range of skirts I've seen in there for along time.

Midi (below the knee) is a nice fashion range for this season, teamed with snug boots and tights and a nice blouse will look great! Weather is starting to cool down, but I still see a lot in skirts. Just wear tights :wink:

Yes it was new stock. 10-12 different lines which is a lot more than I've seen for along time.

Yesterday we had very mild, Spring like weather in Seattle. (In striking contrast to the snow storms we had in February). Noticed a couple women out and about in skirts. Which is significantly more than I have seen since autumn.
