A Charlton Version of Mad Mad Modes for Moderns

In lieu of a Mad Mad Modes for Moderns piece, I have for you a Charlton doppelganger -- "Mini-Midi-Maxi" extolling the virtues of varied skirt lengths.

I especially dig the Star Trek
inspired mini!

Written in much the same style as one of the DC fashion featurettes, this Charlton fashion spread from Romantic Story #99 (March 1969) is a rare treat -- even if it does alliteratively mimic its competitor!


  1. I also vote for the yellow dress with black tights!

  2. Its unanimous! We all love the yellow dress! :)

  3. That's a very chic look now, especially with black leggings. And another look I've seen a lot lately a lot around NYC are minis with high boots!

  4. Ah, to be in NYC and see fashion, Joanne! It is crazy how fashion recycles! To me though -- fashions of the '60s and '70s are pretty timeless!
