Mini Skirt Monday #124: Uniforms


The mini was once a common dress code for all kinds of organizations and professions (waitresses, choir, nurses, FHA, and even and military uniforms).  Private schools didn't require the skirts to minis; however, it wasn't forbidden, so naturally it became part of the dress code.  Sadly, besides cheerleaders, I'd say that minskirt has largely become extinct as a uniform; I guess they figure it takes away from the seriousness and professionalism of the person wearing it.

But I'm proud to say we're keepin' the flame alive on Retrospace.  Note that we are going to bypass stewardesses and cheerleaders as theirs have warranted multiple posts each.  Plus, we'll skip the French Maid as that has already been covered.  I have a plethora of choir girls and other school related uniforms (most of these images come from old yearbooks).  I'm a bit lacking in the nurse and waitress department.  Any vintage photos in those domains would be much appreciated.  Enjoy.




I guess the girls tennis outfit would also qualify as uniform miniskirt that has stood the test of time.  Maybe a tennis Miniskirt Monday is in our near future.

  1. The last one has me confused. Gun club? In school? Guns + PMS + hormonal teenage girls. .... wow. The girl on the outer most left is the one I'd be worried about.

  3. I remember an officer in another unit. I never missed a formation, seeing her in her too-short-for-regulation uniform skirt, hose and heels. Made formation that much more bearable.

    There was a chain of restaurants where the servers wore short dresses. Made paying for an expensive meal that much less painful.

  6. Tall girl in middle of photo #22: "Sure I'm a tall girl but I'm proud of it! Here I am at Whittier College and I have a lot to be proud of about that. One of our alumni Richard Nixon is the President of the United States and that is bound to bring fame, fortune and lasting good credit to my college. What could go wrong? Life is good!
