Years passing by, fashion has changed several times, but the love for dressing up is still the same. Let’s take a little trip back in time. During the 1960s in the U.S., various subcultures like hippies or disco-goers gave us some of the greatest fashion influences of the 20th century. It was the time of cultural transformation that spread across America and around the globe. The time of civil rights, women’s and gay liberation, the sexual revolution, R&B, soul and rock and roll.

In 1969, LIFE Magazine decided to photograph the fashions that American high schoolers across the country were wearing. Take a look at the photos of hippie fashion taken by Arthur Shatz. Compare the 1960s fashion trends with fashion we see everyday.
