Historicism --- The 1960's

The invention of the mini skirt made stockings -- the type that were held up by garters -- obsolete. Enter tights. Tunics, jerkins and minis worn with brightly colored or patterned tights were the way to go. Pictured here, a pair of hand-screen printed tights by Darlene available from Posh Girl Vintage.

Also pictured, one of many styles of wildly patterned tights from Anna Sui's Fall '08 collection.
