1960's A Decade of Changing Fashion
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
The sixties were a decade of ever changing style, from beehive hair do's to long sleek hair, conservative twin sets, below the knee skirts to wild colors and prints, bell bottoms and mini skirts .
Vintage photos from 1968 and 1969.
I married my high school sweetheart in 1970 .We were inseparable from 1966 until 1969 when he went into the military. Most of the images are of us together.
Although I did not really come into my own until the 70's I suppose we did have some sense of the 60's style.
At times we even dressed alike, which was not unusual for those 'going steady' back in the day, as nerdy as it was.
Stove pipe jeans gave way to flared and then full fledged bell bottoms in the late sixties. Oxford shoes were hot, especially the suede kind with the flap that you could remove if you wanted to.
Gunnesax dresses were the rage or something similar. I often chose this style if I wanted to really feel dressed up.
