High School Fashion ~ 1969



How cool do these teenagers look ... photographed by Arthur Schatz for LIFE Magazine. This was a photo essay of high school fashion in 1969 (taken at a Californian high school). It would be interesting to talk to someone who was photographed ...

What an interesting post. Can you just imagine what it would be like to find out that your graduating class was secretly photographed for a fashion flashback?? I cringe to remember what we wore in the
90s! It was definitely not as hip as the 60s and 70s.

I could see you in the fringe vest Sande...fabulous!

Know what you mean Mandy, just not as hip as the 60's or 70's.

I'm pretty sure no news outlet will ever publish photos about how cool I dressed in high school. Mostly because I don't think I've ever been described as "cool" ha. I really like your blog, though!

such great memories...I was only 7, but I remember a favorite vest that my Mom made me..and great style...my Mom was very 'in style' so I see a lot of what she wore in these photos...my aunts as well, whom I adored and looked up to...thanks for the walk down memory lane...those were the best days :)
