    Mini Series

    Let us tell you a short story. It starts in 5400 BC, with ancient figures depicting women in above-the-knee skirts. After a bit of a break, the 1920s saw hemlines rise to the knee, falling again (along with the stock market) during the Great Depression.

    With wartime rationing, the shorter skirt was back in the early 1940s, only to fall again post-war. It was the couturiers who presaged the swinging 60s, with Balenciaga’s ‘sack dress’ and Yves Saint Laurent’s 1959 Trapeze line for Dior. André Courrèges received international recognition for his 1964 couture collection featuring short skirts, while street-focused Mary Quant brought shorter and shorter looks to a mass market of younger and less affluent fashionistas. The mini became a symbol of youth—rebellious, liberated, street.

    Once the look appeared, it wasn’t to go away again for any length of time, and it has reappeared with a vengeance in 2022. Want to be really subversive? Wear vintage minis brought to you by VFG members!

    Most vintage lovers know the Young Edwardian line by Arpeja. This cute faux patchwork micromini is a Young Innocent by Arpeja! It can also be worn as a tunic. I love the oversized rickrack edging and buttons. At MagsRags.net

    Also at MagsRags.net, a strapless 80s cocktail dress by Nicole Miller in blue-to-fuschia silk sharkskin, set off by the capelet that wraps around the shoulders.

    This 80s Western-inspired set is so over the top! The double breasted midriff top has a keyhole back, while the tiered miniskirt is a full circle. And it's all done in a red white and blue starry print.

    On Etsy, this 60s minidress with crewelwork embroidery and kimono-style sleeved is one of my favorites! It's by Phil Rose of California

    And a 60s sheer lace mini dress that is the ultimate in vintage subversion, depending on what you wear underneath!
