#8: Colorful Tights & Knee Highs
Believe it or not, colored tights were not worn before the ’60s!
The trend was another incarnation of the mod way of dressing like a child since the style was so light and gay, and definitely not recommended for the working woman.
Plus with hemlines so short, colored tights were necessary for some reasonable modesty. Mother of the mini skirt Mary Quant even had a line of tights to pair with her leg-baring styles.
