There’s an app to tell if it’s too windy to wear a dress, and it could have saved Kate Middleton from the perfect Internet storm over her wardrobe malfunction.
Just punch your zipcode into Weather To Wear, and depending on how the wind is blowing, the cartoon girl in a mint dress will show you how your dress will react. Here are the icons defined from “OK to wear a dress,” to a quarantine warning: Still No Movement, Calm Ruffling, Light Winds Will Blow Up, Heavy Wind Will Blow Up, and finally, Stormy Stay Inside. If you’re in New York, the air is still and safe for dresses right now, but later on, the light winds will blow. So it’s probably best to staple your hemlines just in case.
Instead of downloading this, you could just lick your finger and stick it out the window to see if it’s too windy for a circle skirt, but that would be too reasonable. Alternatively, you could wait for the the Heavy Wind Will Blow Up icon to guarantee your Marilyn Monroe moment. Anyway, we have no idea how people knew back then that her skirt was blowing up without this app, but we’re looking into it.
