My Favorite Era of Fashion

Everyone has a favorite fashion era.  Some may like the flapper styles of the 1920s, others the neon colors of the 1980s, but, personally, I like the color blocks of the 1960s.  Think Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, standing in front of the store window wearing a simple black dress, a pearl necklace, black elbow-length gloves, large black sunglasses, a high bun in her hair, and a coffee and pastry in her hands.  Think Twiggy, with her short blond hair and big eyelashes, wearing a white babydoll dress and knee-high socks.  Or think Jackie Kennedy, First Lady to the United States of America, style icon to the women of America, and the epitome of what we now think of as American Sportswear.  And let us not forget about the fringe-bearing, tye-dye clad, and peace oriented hippies.  They were the inspiration for the hippie fashion that recently rose up yet again, complete with headbands and peace signs galore.
My second favorite era would have to be the 1980s, but I'll save that for another time...
