I’ve heard of a lot of things being economic indicators, but “High Heels?” Yeap you heard me correctly, a new study shows that high heels and short skirts are worn more when the economy is bad! The study says that over the last 100 years, when the ecomomy went through some of the worst recessions, heels got taller. So you may be thinking….well we’re about to see 9 or 10 inch heels! Not so fast!
IBM studied billions of social media post, and it seems that the height of the heel is about to make it’s way down to a lower levels. So, that must mean that the economy is getting better….right? Not so fast!
The study also shows that the move to a lower heel may indicate an attitude of “long term austerity” that is evolving among consumers. So get ready for kitten heels and flats!
