The 1970s Shirt
In the classic cult film, Dazed And Confused by Richard Linklater's which has been released in the early 1990s, each of the leading male characters looks flawless.

Dickie, one of the main characters, emerges in preened 50s resort wear -- all espadrilles, short-sleeved shirts, and swimming trunks -- while his girlfriend, Marge, slays in shirts loosely knotted over gingham swimsuits, accessorizing with oversized woven baskets, tortoise-shell sunglasses, and a slightly pink nose, kissed by the very bright sun.
Skirts are definitely not dresses, no, but considering "Mean Girls" high popularity and fashion inspiration to many girls out there, exceptions are going to be made. Because of the movie, the availability of ruffled mini skirts has grown over the last couple of seasons, especially in summer.
