60s Fashion

 
Capri pants

What's old is new. Many of these 1960s fashions could be worn today. Capri pants are popular again!

It cannot be repeated enough. Pants were worn for only the most casual activity. And never ever worn to school. They were not prevalent in the work place yet either.

Bermuda shorts The short set at left is very typical of what most women would have worn. Madras was all the rage, and the length of the short would have been considered "respectable."

At right, note that the short shorts are covered by a skirt. Again, a lady doesn't show too much leg!

1960s shorts

Culottes Culottes were another staple of 1960s fashions. They came as dresses, shorts, skirts. These were not allowed at school but if they looked enough like a skirt then you usually got away with it.

Don't ask about the "coolie" hat at left. They were popular but I wouldn't have been caught dead in one.
