1960's Fashion



Vintage clothing, fads and slang. What we wear, what we say, and what makes us a little crazy tells a lot about a culture.

The Fifties was fundamentally a time of conformity. You won't find anything wild or risque on these pages.

But the Sixties were groovy baby. Styles in all things reflected the social turmoil of the decade.

About FASHION. Sorry, kids, but Grease was a movie. Most kids didn't look quite that cool. We dressed very conservatively. What is shown on these pages is an accurate representation of Fifties clothing. So use the navigation bar to the left to see more of Fifties Fashion.

The fashions of the Sixties require some subdivision. The changes evolve into a style revision from the early part of the 1960s to the latter. Special attention must be paid to both hippie clothes and mod fashions.

About FADS. Before Beanie Babies and Pokemon, there were hula hoops and coonskin caps. We went just as nuts about these things, but we didn't have the sheets and towels to match. Let alone video games.

About SLANG. There's nothing like a war to produce slang, but Korea wasn't enough. The Forties and the Sixties generated more of it, but the Fifties had enough to make us, you know, cool.


Enjoy and thanks for coming by !
