If you're looking for bold fashion advice, then look back to the sixties, the era of freedom and liberation. That was perhaps the era of greater social change than any era since. The world as we know it today would not be here if not for the sixties.


If you're looking for bold fashion advice, then look back to the sixties, the era of freedom and liberation. That was perhaps the era of greater social change than any era since. The world as we know it today would not be here if not for the sixties.

Sexual revolution and women's revolution were just two of the revolutions taking place in the 60s. These revolutionary movements spilled over into the fashion industry. If you need proof of this, just look at the mini skirt.

Different people spell it differently, but the mini-skirt, miniskirt or mini skirt remains the same: it is short and sexy and only for the young and the bold. A French fashion label was the first to lift the hemline above the knees in 1964.

For some reason, though, it took a 1966 version of the skirt to make it catch on. It was the even higher hemlined Chelsea style skirt that grabbed the world's attention.

It was then that the miniskirt swept the world off its feet. Young women, recently liberated from girdles, thanks to the invention of pantyhouse, embraced the mini with a passion. Before long, every self-respecting woman under the age of 30 was turning heads on the streets and in the nightclubs of London, New York and San Francisco in a mini skirt.

Gradually, mini-skirts were replaced by the next big thing in fashion, but they never disappeared altogether. While the denim mini continues to be the biggest seller, their are still plenty of bold young women who wear them in everything from vinyl to leather. They are still the sexiest skirts around, too, especially if they're in see-through fabrics or in a schoolgirl or nurse design.

The best fashion advice for the fashion fearless is no advice. Wear whatever suits your fancy. It's your body and your personality and no one else's. This is what we learned from the sixties: "Do your own thing." Strut your stuff, girls!
