1968--school assembly- girls wore skirts. No slacks or jeans. Clean and combed hair. In most schools, the girl on the far left front seat would probably be sent home to change - her skirt was too short. Teachers checked by having you kneel. Your hem had to brush the floor. By the late 60s though, many schools had given up trying to ban the miniskirt. You did have to wear stockings or tights, though - NO bare legs!

    you should have tried being at my school then! Uniform was strict. Tights or stockings were forbidden - we wore white ankle socks in summer and knee length grey ones in Winter. Skirts had to come to the middle of the knee, gym skirts had to touch the floor when kneeling. We had to have outdoor and indoor shoes. Our hats had a ribbon with a bow at the side and an enamel badge on the front. The distance from the centre of the badge to the centre of the bow was measured, and it was detention for any uniform infringement.

    Ick! I started school at a Convent boarding school in the mid 50s, but luckily after that, it was all Public schools. They always had us wearing one-piece bloomer outfits for gym - all the department stores carried them. Short sleeves, elastic hemmed legs ending just above the knee, button down the front. Ugly as hell. (maybe so the boys would not be tempted at our half-dressed state LOL) Sneakers were for gym only - we had to wear regular shoes in class. Pantyhose and tights didn't come around until the mid 60s, about a year after the miniskirt proved that wearing stockings was a disaster unless you planned to stand up all day. Gawd, I hated stockings and girdles and those danged garters that always bit into you!
