Vintage Mini Skirts: 1960s / 1970s

Since in 1962, the British designer Mary Quant popularized the miniskirt, this garment that catches eyes refused to leave the female wardrobe.

The miniskirt has been present almost in every decade of fashion, to date. Clear, used variously and gracefully evolving with the passage of the years. There who can say that a miniskirt is “old-fashioned”.

First introduced by Quant in the Decade of the sixties, the miniskirt has been considered the greatest revolution of fashion.

At the end of the Decade of the 50, Quant experimented with long shorter in his London Bazaar boutique when he created the mini dress in 1962, being initially regarded as scandalous won popularity across the globe.

The maternity skirt became not only “look” of the Decade, but a symbol of sexual freedom and Liberation, independence and confidence that adopted then women who let see provocatively legs who in previous decades had remained under long skirts to the knee or below.

It was as well as born girls a-gogo of 60s carrying mini-dresses with cut at “A” with wide belts and without sleeves or miniskirts style collegiate with planks, all fabrics highly structured and rigid materials like of terlenka, very popular in those times.

In the 70s the miniskirt continued conducting while and while structured styles continued in use, are also wore Caftans or short tunics more inspired in the “flower power” which came from the hand of Eastern influences. Corduroy and “patched” styles also began to see a lot in the streets.

With the 80s came punk and the streets began to fill accompanied by thick tights and industrial boots leather miniskirts. Also the pop icons of the 90s greatly influenced fashion and used Jersey mini-dresses in colors cake, broad on leggings and shoes flats, as Madonna did. The denim miniskirts combined with tights and heaters were also very popular among young women.

The minimalism of the 90s did not side miniskirts, following the inertia of the 80 used Jersey mini-dresses tight to the body, often combined with wide belts at the beginning of this decade. The miniskirts also continued using with a grunge style, with extensive flight and flowered fabrics combined with industrial boots and denim jackets that marked a style at this time.

And in the professional field, women incorporated costume tailor with miniskirt, which was very assisted in the 90s, doing to see women who are determined to succeed in the professional level without neglecting their femininity.

The new Millennium was thoroughly eclectic, looking to the past and returning to the same influences. Around 2005 the denim miniskirt returned to regain its boom, but now accompanied by black leggings, making it clear that it was an inspiration taken from the 80s. The summer mini-dresses, continued to hold a short length and the hipsters of the cities returned to give new life to styles vintage that we had already left behind for several decades.

It is as well as in 50 years, the miniskirt is still protagonist of fashion, and without any intention of put a foot out of the spotlight.
