Mini Skirt Monday #187: 1980s Fashion Advertising


The mid-eighties saw a small resurgence in the miniskirt.  After being cast aside in the mid-seventies, it returned a decade later - not to its former ubiquitous glory, but a comeback nonetheless,  Here are a handful of advertisements from this era.  Enjoy.

  2. I love '80s chicks! In high school there was nothing finer than to be sitting near young ladies wearing outfits like these. Pumps, hose and minis, the stuff of high school boys' leggy daydreams! Have a great Memorial Day Gilligan!

    The fashion was strong in the 80's and early 90s. Short skirts and pantyhose/tights were all the rage.
