THE AUTUMN MINI SKIRT
I’m not sure where I stand when it comes to baring my legs in autumn. On the one hand, I am an extremely lazy shaver (or I’m battling the patriarchy, who knows?) and if you can’t forgo shaving throughout autumn and winter, when can you? On the other hand, I actually prefer wearing skirts in cooler weather, because not only is summer chafing a thing of the past, but I tend to struggle with internal temperature regulation in the colder months.
Picture this: a crowded tube carriage with steamed up windows from congested people breathing through their mouths and bodies radiating heat after a mad dash to the station. Yuck. A seemingly put together young woman enters the carriage, but to everybody in her immediate vicinity’s discomfort, she immediately begins ripping off every layer of clothing while simultaneously turning the colour of a tomato as beads of sweat melt the makeup off her face. Yep, that’s me, and it’s horrendous every time!
Something about the stark contrast between indoor and outdoor temperatures over autumn and winter is really difficult for my body to manage. In fact, I recently passed out in the middle of a crowd of swaying bodies at rush hour because of this very reason. True story! In any case, reducing my core body temperature to near hypothermic levels by baring my legs in the dead of winter seems to help, so here are the mini skirts I’ll gladly brave the cold for!
