1960s Mini Skirt and Dress

The 1960s fashion world was in for a shock when the mini 60s 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. The 1960s was the decade that skirts shortened up, slimmed down, and experimented with new colors and new materials.

The short 60s 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 big checks and large dots. The reversible wool plaid pleated skirt was an icon for many school girls. Corduroy, tweed, and denim was also a big deal in winter.

The 70s saw most 60s short skirt continue but also saw long hippie skirts or Boho skirts with suede fringe or peasant prints. Long A-line wool skirts were worn at work and denim skirts on the weekends. The decade was full of change.
