I did a quick look on ebay and the category of skirts had about half a million entries and dresses had just under 2 million. Surprisingly pants had a similar number of entries to skirts. I wonder if the listings represent what women are not wearing more than what they are???

Thick tights, thicker tights and skinny pull-on leggings have become standard wear for girls/young women here of late. This is reflected in the rag shops, where one has to search the whole place or a few skirts tucked away in some corner.

Come the warmer weather and a rash of cheap A-line miniskirts will come on display, standard length about 17 inches, so the young things will either wear these or 'distressed' jeans with holes in them, occasionally both !

About a week ago I noticed a woman wearing an ankle length skirt in a bank. Yesterday, in a grocery store, I noticed another woman wearing an ankle length skirt.

In my area u you will see alot of girls wearing black tights or leggings with colored skirt,
Few years back trend was tights and shorts and still see girls doing that but even on coldest day.
U can spot one brave sole sporting a short skirt,
No one mess's with a big guy in kilt

Can't say I've noticed here although it is winter. Skirts or dresses are only really seen as formal or business attire eg. work/clubbing/dating and even there its less common than say 10/15 years ago. Last summer when it reached record highs there were many more trouserless garments, throwing off inseams makes so much sense round sweaty legs.

WAS it a skirt? Today we went to look at a property; the female agent met us in an eye-poppingly short skirt; legs fully encased in black tights but that did not diminish notice to the hemline. This may not be evidence of women wearing more skirts, but less of them -- and in that regard I've no complaints! However, in keeping with the intent of the thread, I'd say I think so -- but perhaps only because I notice them even more since I started wearing them full time. I also find it interesting that compliments seem to come more from women in skirts, than those in pants -- fathom that one?

MOH distinctly increased her skirt wearing days in public when I was clad in a skirt, and these days I rarely see her in pants even if we are just hanging out at home.

I see this a lot in the cooler weather: the skirt serves to dress up a pair of leggings and add a bit of modesty/warmth but is quite short.
