According to Wikipedia, "The 1960s featured a number of diverse
trends. It was a decade that broke many fashion traditions, mirroring social movements
during the time. In the middle of the decade, culottes, go-go boots, box-shaped
PVC dresses and other PVC clothes were popular. The widely popular bikini came into
fashion in 1963 after being featured in the musical Beach Party." In the early-to-mid-1960s,
the London Modernists known as the Mods were shaping and defining popular fashion
for young British men while the trends for both changed more frequently than ever
before in the history of fashion and would continue to do so throughout the decade.
In the United States, the hippie lifestyle was in full bloom. Bell bottom
jeans and tie dye clothing was the rage.
Ponchos, moccasins, love beads, peace signs, medallion necklaces,
chain belts, polka dot-printed fabrics, and long, puffed "bubble" sleeves were additional
trends in the late 1960s. Both men and women wore frayed bell-bottomed jeans, tie-dyed
shirts, workshirts, Jesus sandals, and headbands. Women would often go barefoot,
and some went braless. The idea of multiculturalism also became very popular; a
lot of style inspiration was drawn from traditional clothing in Nepal, India, Bali,
Morocco and African countries. Because inspiration was being drawn from all over
the world, there was increasing separation of style; though clothing pieces often
had similar elements and created similar silhouettes, there was no real "uniform".
By 1969, psychedelia had begun to influence mainstream menswear,
with the pale, toned business suits being replaced with Bohemian Carnaby Street
creations that included velvet or brocade double breasted suits, frilly shirts,
cravats, wide ties and trouser straps, leather boots, and even collarless Nehru
jackets. The slim neckties of the early 60s were replaced with Kipper ties exceeding
five inches in width, and featuring crazy prints, stripes and patterns.
Fringed buck-skin vests, flowing caftans, the "lounging"
or "hostess" pajamas became popular. "Hostess" pajamas consisted of a tunic top
over floor-length culottes, and were usually made of polyester or chiffon.
