We Should’ve Known the Stock Market Was Going to Crash: Look at These Skirts!

Pin it

There’s an old theory that you can predict the trajectory of the stock market according to the length of women’s skirts: if skirts are short, the stock market is on its way up, and if they’re long, the market’s going to plummet.

This has always seemed like an old wives’ tale, but in light of yesterday’s stock market drop, we decided to check out the skirt section at a bunch of retail stores.

Wouldn’t you know it, the summer skirts being sold in the US are all long right now!

Sure, it’s probably a coincidence…but it’s a pretty crazy one!
