1960s Style Skirts

1960s Mini Skirt and Dress

The 1960s fashion world was in for a shock when the mini skirt first came out. Classy women were still wearing the straight fitting sheath skirt or pencil skirt (think Jackie O style). Some continued to wear full gathered or pleated swing skirts that came to knee length too. The 1960s was the decade for all skirt styles to shine!

The short 1960s mini skirt was quickly adopted by the young and rebellious who wore them with matching bright colored tights and high knee socks. Plaid was the most popular print followed by other big checks and dots. The reversible wool plaid pleated skirt was an icon for many school girls. Corduroy was also a big deal in winter with a button up style on trend again this year.

The end of the decade saw long hippie or Boho skirts with suede fringe or peasant prints. The decade was full of change. Learn more about 1960s women’s fashion.
