The Fifties was a time of conformity with emphasis on good grooming. Women were smartly dressed and looked every inch a lady. A waist was a must and so was the dress. Sixties Fashion was more exciting. It was a time of political and social unrest and nothing portrayed those conflicts more clearly than the fashion. Vinyl, miniskirts and hot pants were fashionable as well as box-shaped dresses, pill box hats and peter pan collars.
