Super 1960s
Though pants were available in the 40s they gained in popularity in the 60s. Skirt lengths rise from below the knee to above
the knee. The younger generation going higher than that, introducing the mid thigh mini skirts. A line and tunic dresses
become popular with geometric patterns and colors of flags, military uniforms and abstract art. Wiggle dresses are still
popular, though somewhat shorter than the 50s, and so are full skirts for formals in the early 60s. There is now a few
completely different styles from Mod, waist-less dresses to Classic allowing more individualism. Maxi dresses (full length)
with empire waistlines became popular for formal attire. Colors start off as earthy, muted oranges, yellows reds and browns
or solid colors. By the end of the era dresses were bold in color and/or with contrasting patterns made of polyester fabric
with nylon zippers up the center back or front. The nylon zipper hits mass production in 1968
