“The last rule of fashion in high school is that there is no rule.” That was the phrase the schools in Beverly Hills, Colorado, and California used in 1969. As the first wave of baby boomers came, the fashion market changed drastically. From long sleeves to crop tops, from simple dark colors to bright colors and from long dresses to mini skirts.
Women were showing more skin than ever before. Being over the top was never too much! The late 60s became free. Everybody had their own fashion inventions such as color-mixing, experimenting with textiles, shoes, jewelry. Woodstock, of course, was also a huge part of this period. This is where the hippie movement happened. Leather jackets, headbands, mini shorts, nudity and a freer sexuality came into place. Many people at that time saw it as a good new era of fashion but many fashion brands called the late 1960s a decade that broke many fashion traditions.
The fashion of the late 60s is still going strong today. In spite of the countless evolutions in fashion, mini skirts, crop tops, leather jackets, crazy high heels and bright colors still remain nowadays in the fashion scene.
