|That's technically a mini on the left; but the one on the right is what we're looking for today.|
Needless to say, once the mini had reached its absolute limit (any further and it would have not been a skirt or dress at all, but rather a sort of indecent looking blouse), the mini fell out of vogue. Hot pants kept the dream alive, but the ever shortening skirt that seemed to creep up with each passing year (much to the chagrin of teachers and parents) was no more.
|Again, the dress on the left is technically a mini; however, by the early seventies, they were looking more like the one on the right..|
Today we're going to memorialize those skirts that tested the boundaries. Miniskirts and mini-dresses that rose five inches and counting above the knee. I'm not sure how these girls sat or bent over even a little bit... but 'ours is not to reason why'. Enjoy.
