In Photos: London Street Style From The 50s and 60s

Fashion has always flipped and changed over the decades, but one of the major turning points for London came in the 1950s and 60s when youthful designers began to really push the boat out. Dapper chaps and elegant ladies began to don leather and patterned prints by the bucket-load. Twiggy became a huge face for London's style, and celebrities and musicians also had a pioneering hand in street fashion. Have a gander at our look back on London's street style of the 50s and 60s.
