New Skirts '70

Shelley in a spread for Simplicity Fashion News, January 1970

Shelley appeared in Simplicity Fashion News' January 1970 issue, in a spread called "Sew the new skirts". After the success of the mini-skirt in the '60s, midi-skirts were being introduced as an alternative. But they were styled to show the legs nevertheless, with slits and all. Shelley modeled the slashed-up-the-front midi-skirt that had a matching brief bolero. With it, she wore a mock turtleneck striped top, an up-to-the-minute belt with a western buckle and a pair of matching low-heeled slingback sandals. And Shelley looked like one fantastic '70s chick.
