She (and we) Love You, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
Not only are The Beatles music legends, but they also changed the social landscape for years to come. Hairstyles and fashion in general gave a nod to the dynamic group with the “mop top” hairstyle which grew in popularity in the mid-1960s.
Their style evolved, too. In the early days, The Beatles wore black and grey suits, keeping it very English. But as the psychedelic period took over, bright colors and patterns, like those of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, became the signature look. The band also popularized Indian-inspired fashion of linen trousers, collarless shirts, and sandals.
