NEW YORK — From juniors to contemporary to designer, miniskirts are this spring’s fling — and fall apparently loves them, too.
Whether it’s a harbinger of an improving economy, a yearning for the simpler days of the Swinging Sixties or simply boredom with long skirts and pants, minis are being scooped up by teenagers and women from their 20s to their 50s. Despite the cold weather and snowstorms that hit the eastern half of the U.S. in the last four days, designer retailers said they can’t keep minis in stock, while such specialty chains as Express claim minis now account for 50 percent of their skirt business.
