The 1960s fashion knew many different trends. Also, many fashion traditions were broken in the 60s. Whereas before fashion was dictated by fashion designers of London and Paris, in the 60s common young people determined fashion trends. Carnaby street and Chelsea King’s road became the new fashion centers of so-called swinging London. Around 1960 boutiques as the one by Mary Quant had raised and also many pubs in the neighboring streets.
Fashion icon of the early 60s was First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, who introduced the pillbox hat. Women further wore:
– Suits with short boxy jackets and big buttons
– Simple geometric dresses called “shifts”
– Full skirted evening gowns often with low décolleté and close-fitting waist
– Stiletto heels
