Beautiful Vintage Photos Show How Cool Moms Were in the 1960s

“Mom at a New Year’s Eve party at Aunt Mary & Uncle Frank Martinelli’s house on Redmont Rd., Dec. 31, 1965”

The 1960s saw a flourishing in art, music and fashion. The term “The Sixties” is used to denote the complex of inter-related cultural and political trends around the globe during this era.

Some use the term to describe the decade’s counterculture and revolution in social norms about clothing, music, drugs, dress, sexuality, formalities, and schooling; others use it to denounce the decade as one of irresponsible excess, flamboyance, and decay of social order.

It was a decade that broke many fashion traditions, mirroring social movements during the time. So, take a look at these vintage photos from Flickr members to see how cool moms were back then.
