People have always followed fashion in the clothes they wear and the way they wear them. Typical 1960s clothes included:
- flamboyant men's shirts decorated with ruffles;
- 'Teddy Boy' suits with: long, 'drape' jackets, thin ties and suede shoes;
- knee-high Go-Go boots which became popular after the release of the song These Boots are Made for Walking in 1966;
- mini-skirts - created by British fashion designer Mary Quant.
More people began visiting hairdressers in the 1960s as the wearing of hats went out of fashion. Hair styles like the beehive became popular.
