1960s Fashion

However, the 60s didn’t begin with color. The fashions at the start of the decade were dull, plain, and better suited for older people. It wasn’t until boutiques arrived, selling cheap and colorful clothes for younger consumers, that the fun fashions began to surface.

The 1960s also brought us leather boots, mini skirts, and false eyelashes became standard. The “bouffant” look, carried over from the 50s, was still popular. The “beehive” hairstyle became popular in the early 60s, and other hair styles which resulted in very teased, very tall hair.


1970s


Hip Hop Pop

Hip hop is both a cultural movement as well as a music genre. It started to grow in the American suburbs in the early 70s which gave us old school rap. Kool Herc and Grandmaster Flash were two of those who created music especially for the suburb parties and for those who wanted to put music to their words. And so, the MCs appearered. Some young mothers who grew up in the 1980s deprived of pinks, lace, long hair and Barbies, Paoletti suggests, rejected the pretty look for their own daughters. “Even if they are still feminists, they are perceiving those things in a different light than the baby boomer feminists did,” she says. “They think even if they want their girl to be a surgeon, there’s nothing wrong if she is a very feminine surgeon.”
