The Swinging London – Black and White Photos Show What Young Londoners Wore in the 1960s

Swinging London is a catch-all term applied to the fashion and cultural scene that flourished in London in the 1960s. It consisted largely of music, discothèques, and mod fashion.

Swinging London was a youth-oriented phenomenon that emphasized the new and modern. It was a period of optimism and hedonism, and a cultural revolution. One catalyst was the recovery of the British economy after post-World War II austerity which lasted through much of the 1950s.

Here below is a black and white photo collection that shows the typical fashion of young Londoners in this era.
