I don’t know if you’ve heard of this new, in-vogue clothing item called a dress. But, as the New York Timesreports today, women are going fucking nuts over it. According to some females interviewed, dresses are “cool” and “comfortable.”
In the punishing heat of a July afternoon, dresses are “the ultimate in comfort,” said Whitney May, who is an assistant in the architecture and design department at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. On a recent Sunday, she breezed among the stalls at a flea market in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in a roomy pale green tunic-length style. “Dresses are almost always looser and less constricting than pants or a skirt,” said Ms. May, 27. “When it’s this hot, I don’t wear anything else.”
Selma Akkari, 19, a student, favors dresses in the summertime because “they’re colorful, light and airy,” she said, adding, “They make girls look happy and confident about their bodies.”
President Obama has yet to comment on this development.
