 The Mavens' Word of the Day
Like many words, one meaning is built on a number of figurative senses which are each clear, but the relationship of the final meaning to the original meaning is not clear if you don't know the intervening steps.
In this case, the original meaning of skirt is still the most common: 'the part of a dress or similar garment that extends downward from the waist; (hence) a one-piece garment extending downward from the waist, worn esp. by women and girls'.
An important figurative extension of this is 'the outlying or bordering parts of anything; border; boundary', which itself has a number of specific subsenses.
