The sixties were nothing if not colorful.  I guess it was a reaction to the drab colors of previous decades - or maybe it was some development in textile dyeing process.  Who knows.  I'm certainly too lazy to find out.

Anyway, for this post I've got a mixed bag of girls in miniskirts sporting stockings, hose, and tights in every color of the rainbow.  It was trendy during the psychedelic sixties, but by 1970 this fad was dead on arrival. For a brief magical time both the miniskirt and loud colored leg coverings converged - and this is a post about that beautiful moment.  Sure, the style popped up again in the eighties, but only to a small extent.

A significant percentage of non-professional photography during this period was black and white. Thus, tracking down a goodly number of photos for your viewing pleasure was a bit of a challenge. However, I still managed to scrounge up a healthy amount of images ranging from the sixties to the eighties. Enjoy.
