60s Fashion

 
Bell bottom pants

At last the swinging sixties found its groove. Everything including pants got groovy in the late 1960s. Bell bottoms, hip huggers, and yes, finally, you could see a navel.

Teens embraced the new styles. (See also Teen clothes) Even mainstream women were sporting wider legs and lower waistlines.

However, women wore dresses far more often than pants, which were still considered casual clothing.

The outfit at left retains the feminine touch in the blouse, while the pants scream Sixties.

And what fun are the two pieces below? You can buy the dress alone or the dress with the pants.
