In the 60s

Fitted, sleeveless bodices and flared skirts in 1963

A little bit of shopping over the Memorial Day weekend left me with the eerie feeling that I had seen the “latest fashions”  before — the “new” Peter Pan collar on blouses, dresses with fitted bodices and flared skirts, cardigans, straight skirts and skinny legs on pants.  Surely enough, a review of the 1962 and 1963 Daedalian yearbooks showed me why these current fashions seemed so familiar!

However ………..I don’t think the bobby socks are coming back any time soon!  Let’s hope not!

Enjoy these other 1962-63 coed fashions!

And then the 2012 versions…..
