The baby boomers were getting old enough to comprehend what was happening, a war dominated the country for half of the decade and the age of free love was slowly slipping away. That doesn’t mean things were all bad. With the changing times came changing fashion. 

While clothing may seem like a bunch of trends that come and go each decade had a dress code specific to that time. A lot of these pieces have become timeless and nostalgic throughout the years, but when they were modern and new these clothes meant a lot to the people who were wearing them.
