Did we DARE wear skirts so short?
Some credit fashion designer Mary Quant with its invention. Others say Jean Shrimpton popularized it. It was a popular fad, for sure.
There's a theory that skirt lengths are inversely proportionate to the prosperity of the economy. Short skirts when the economy thrives.
As for hair, I tried to get my hair to look like Jean Shrimpton's -- but my bangs didn't work like hers. Everything was the "London Look" -- the British invasion.
1960s fashion was such fun
Geometric Sassoon haircuts, Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton, Yardley cosmetics, Canoe cologne, "Fire and Ice" lipstick.
Did I forget anything?
