About Mini Skirts

The mini skirt made quite the splash when it debuted in the 1960s. Daring designers like Mary Quant took a radical approach to dresses and skirts, changing fashionable hemlines almost overnight. In the past, a skirt was considered short if it showed the knees, so the short hemlines of the Swinging Sixties were practically scandalous. Although older people shunned mini skirts, young people loved the sexy look. It became associated with youth culture and graced magazine pages on the hips of icons such as Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy. Today, the look is much less scandalous, and even a very short micro mini skirt is unlikely to raise eyebrows. Still, that does not make the look any less stylish, and fashionistas all over the world consider an attractive short skirt a wardrobe staple. eBay sellers offer plenty of choices, including 1980s denim mini skirts, original 1960s looks, and modern cuts. There is an excellent selection of sizes available, so you are bound to find something that works with your wardrobe.
