Seniors – 60’s

Juniors – 70’s

Sophomores – 80’s

Freshmen – 90’s

The late 60’s consisted of bright swirls, tie-dye shirts, and long hair. Fringe was also very in outfits.

The 70’s fashion trends were tight pants that flare at the bottom and platform shoes – basically more exaggerated trends from the 60’s.

Flannel shirts, baseball caps, and high rise jeans were all part of the 90’s. Loose fitting crop tops were commonly worn by women and hip-hop inspired outfits were worn by men.
