America is still mourning the loss of an important hero of US history, Neil Armstrong, who passed away last week.  In 1969, he was the first astronaut to walk on the moon, which was a huge moment for the entire world. It truly was "One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind." Along with the moon landing, 1969 was an iconic year in history, with many major events which happened that year. Richard Nixon became president, Woodstock happened, The Beatles releases 'Abbey Road', and The Brady Bunch debuted on national television.

Not only was this a huge year for politics and pop culture, but it was a huge year for fashion. Clothing made a huge change as the world was now entering the 1970's. Women's fashions were becoming much more fitted and a lot more simple. The hippie movement was also happening, with bell bottoms, tie-dye, and fringe vests everywhere. Here are some photos from Life Magazine of fashionistas in New York in the summer of 1969.


Fashion from all decades still inspires us today. And of course, krispyfringe has you covered if you want to add some '60s flair to your life.
