Miniskirt

TopMiniskirt

 

Much like the afro was to Black males, the miniskirt was for women, a tool of rebellion.


Wearing a hemline at mid-thigh, these women sneered at the social rules put in place by the “wholesome” members of society and decided they would dress as they liked.

The height of the miniskirts popularity was around 1967, when it was practically the only type of skirt being sold to young women. At this time, when many young people were “letting it all hang out,” women had grown tired of having to act proper and demure and sought to have the world appreciate them on their terms.

The miniskirt is believed to have originated in either England or France and may have been the most popular fad of all for women. Just when it started to be fully accepted by most of society, the miniskirt craze began diminishing until wearing one had become a novelty.
