This seems to be a near-universal subject of bewilderment:
DRESS: A garment, typically worn by women, that covers both the upper and lower halves of the torso.
SKIRT: A garment, typically worn by women, that covers only the LOWER half of the torso.
Seriously, why do men have such trouble with this? I have been told, by more than one guy, that a skirt is short (ie above the knee) and a dress is long (ie below the knee)….
