Thank you 1960s London for your Swinging 60s and for giving us Mary Quant. Her daring styles gave birth to the mini skirt. I could go on about how both liberating and terrifying this invention was for many women, but really all you need to do is see a micro mini and the historical significance just shows. Right?

But over in the States this look would not have worked for all the drug crazed festivals and such. Imagine going to Woodstock in such a tiny number! Although some certainly did, many flower children opted for the more comfortable maxi dress. No embarrassing panty shots in one of these!
