    Teen Fashions of the 1950s-1960s

    In this episode, we will be looking at the new, different, and exciting range of teenage fashions in the 1950s and 1960s. This was a particularly exciting period for teenagers, as they began to break away from their parents’ generation to develop their own distinct style and interests.

But why did the concept of the teenager develop? What changes were happening in society that brought about these changes in fashion? What were the most iconic clothes and why were they so popular?
