The New Year is here and, as we all recover from our hangovers and the year that was 2011 (Christ, I hope this one's better), I thought I'd celebrate the date with a festive themed Miniskirt Monday post.

This one's got bunches of vintage pictures of girls in minis at parties, clowning around, and just having fun. Let's recall that the miniskirt, back then, was just as much (if not more) about the the girls as it was the boys. It was the perfect display of liberation, youth, and general freedom of a new generation of female youth.  Sure, the guys loved it, but it was a statement, baby. It was a statement about casting aside old hang-ups and semi-puritanical constraints.

In other words, the mini was about letting your hair down and having a good time - a middle finger to the discretion of their parent's generation. Enjoy!
