Hi guys~~
I've heard people mention about putting "weights" on skirts to keep them from flying up. Is there a certain thing to buy?
Thanks guys~~

Chanel is famous for sewing a length of lighweight chain into the hems of their jackets to achieve the correct drape in their classic suits. There are several different things you can use in a skirt hem to achieve the same effect - small fishing weights securely sewn into the hem in periodic spots, or horsehair braid if you want the skirt to have a lot of "presence" so the hem sticks out and doesn't fly around too much. Even a length of chain (obviously).
