Fashionable Clothing from the Sears Catalogs: Late 1960s focuses on wearable, collectible vintage clothing and accessories. The Sears catalogs provide the basis for a comprehensive study of the fashions of this period. The descriptions drawn from the catalogs are detailed and accurate in order to help collectors understand the styles of the period, as well as the textiles in use. Although Sears shows apparel for every market, from glamorous to practical, Fashionable Clothing from the Sears Catalogs: Late 1960s showcases the most collectible, trendy garments and accessories from the period: stretch pants, mini skirts, turtleneck tunics, tank tops, pantskirts, pantjumpers, flared-leg pants, A-line shifts, knee-high boots, and belted swimwear. There are chapters on "Gowns, Dresses, Shifts, Skirts, and Shirts," "Pants, Pantjumpers, Pantskirts, and Tunics," "Coats," "Swimsuits, Play Suits, and Beach Cover-ups," "Underwear and Nightwear," and "Accessories." The book focuses on women's fashions, but includes examples of collectible men's and children's fashions of the period.
