Fashion - 1970 s: Lengths to go to. It has been a long time since hemlines have been

Fashion - 1970 s: Lengths to go to. It has been a long time since hemlines have been important in fashion. After it gave us the mini, midi and maxi, girls simply and quite rightly pleased themselves. Now hemlines for Spring 79 really matter again. The reason is that showing as much leg as possible is the most important feature of all the clothes shown by top designers. Legs have been covered in jeans, hidden under calf-length skirts and knee-length boots so that nobody has seen so much as a well-turned ankle, never mind a flash of a thigh. But legs are back and with them the controversy of how much should be shown and where the hemline is drawn. Legs... satin mini-skirt and matching bodies. January 1979 P017460

Fashion - 1970s - Lengths to Go To

EDITORS COMMENTS
. In this print from January 1979, we are transported back to an era where hemlines held significant importance in the world of fashion. The mini, midi, and maxi had already left their mark on previous decades, allowing women to embrace their personal style preferences. However, Spring '79 brought a renewed focus on hemlines as top designers emphasized the allure of showing off one's legs. For far too long, legs had been concealed under jeans or hidden beneath calf-length skirts and knee-high boots. The sight of a well-turned ankle or even a glimpse of thigh was rare. But now, legs were making a triumphant comeback! And with them came controversy surrounding how much skin should be revealed and where exactly the hemline should fall. This stunning image captures the essence of this leg-centric fashion revival. A model confidently struts her stuff in a satin mini-skirt that accentuates her enviable limbs. Paired with matching bodies and high heels that elongate her silhouette further, she embodies the epitome of chic femininity from that iconic era. As we gaze upon this snapshot frozen in time, let us appreciate how fashion has always been cyclical—how trends come and go but never truly disappear forever. This photograph serves as a reminder that sometimes it takes just one bold choice—a daring hemline—to reignite an entire industry's fascination with showcasing our most alluring features once more.
