What did your everyday outfit look like?

We wore very very short mini skirts. Prior to minis we had worn very full net petticoats under full skirts and dresses. We starched the petticoats so they stood out. Another fashion was hot pants, these were like shorts worn under a skirt with a slit at the front.  Gill Palin

    I dressed for warmth! Usually wool pants, maybe they were bell bottoms, and layers of sweaters. A bright red coat with black buttons was about as trendy as I got on a daily basis. My attempt at looking London chic ended in disaster when I went to the Vidal Sassoon school to get a hair cut. The hair stylist began chopping off all my long hair and I panicked and told her to stop. She tried to rectify the new “do” but I never achieved “chic-dom.”

    I had a custom made mini made from my mum’s navy serge skirt. it was a hipster, well above the knee with an op-art based design on it (except it wasn’t black and white but had red too). With that I wore a brown skinny rib jumper and a reefer jacket. no one had a skirt like that and i used to get stopped in the street.
    i also had a fab pink smock dress with a crochet collar from C&A and a black op-art dress my mum made. most of our clothes were home made, but my mum sewed for a boutique too. It was off the King’s Road at Park Walk but the only thing i could afford to buy there was a string of wooden beads. i still have them.
