  1. What happened? Some self-named "mod" types, not designers, thought around 1965 that women should be "modern" & have legs as naked as possible. This stayed around except for a 10-year period from the late 70s to the 80s. There were still "long" – even just knee-length – skirts in the 90s and even 10 years ago. But sluttiness goes a long way on TV & in movies … & is especially associated with rock and other "sexy entertainment." Rock and minis are tied together and … well, you know.

  3. Last year,i was at college and this lady has a dress on that looked like these,but not over the top elegant.it was white and she was wearing high heels.She stood out from everyone else! and she wasn't wearing too much make-up!..wow,gorgeous! X D…

  4. I wish we still dressed like this. If you go out now and even attempt to look respectable you are looked down upon. Designers….bring back true fashion when a woman looked like a lady and not a tramp.
