Bell Bottoms

The truth about bell-bottom jeans is that people were wearing them in the 60s, but they gained popularity in the 70s. Still, everything has to start somewhere.

Because the trend isn’t just to shield your eyes, it’s to eclipse roughly a third of your face. Why? That’s a good question.

Hippie Fashion

The loose clothing isn’t so bad, but if one loosens their habits when it comes to hygiene, well, it doesn’t work so well. Otherwise, this fashion isn’t all that bad.

Babydoll Dresses

In its own way, the babydoll dress was a sign of rebellion. It’s risky to say that the 60s was a loose decade, but the styles kind of point to that fact.

Fringe

Some folks used to wear fringe on EVERYTHING. It didn’t matter if it was their footwear or their t-shirts, if they could put fringe on it, they would.

BeretsĀ

Pearls

Pearls are an interesting fashion accessory that can make or break an outfit. But as a 60s fashion trend, they were all the rage occasionally.

Car Coats

A coat designed to wear as you’re driving. That sounds like it comes from an era of excess, doesn’t it? Of all the 60s fashion trends, and there were many, this one is good for a chuckle.
