Summer is always a time to show off some skin especially those gorgeous gams that you’ve spent months laboring for at the gym unless you’re genetically blessed, in which case, trotting around in a pair of stilletos is all you need.
Speaking of stilletos in relation to the topic du jour, the higher those Louboutins and Choos seem to get, the shorter the hemlines seem to recede. Although many argue that the miniskirt may have existed as long as civilization has (recently unearthed ancient figurines dating between 5400-4700 B.C show women in mini skirts) ; Thanks to the 60s, a politically charged era of liberation, revolution and change, the mini resurfaced again at the fore front of the fashion movement.
The skirt has seen so many variations of length from the lady like, full skirt of the 50s to the mid length cut of the 70s and the super short hemlines of the 80s and 90s respectively.
