If it’s true that there is nothing new under the sun, then there is no better proof than these photos. While many of the styles featured here look very much like some of the ensembles hoofin’ it down the runways lately, they’re actually the originators from over forty years ago! 
 
Shot by photographer Arthur Schatz in 1969 for Life Magazine, the scenes pictured below capture a day in the life of typical late sixties high school. Whether these were candid or styled, I don’t know. What I do know, however, is that these girls knew how to rock it! Check it out:
 
 
 
Kind of in love with everything in this picture:  orange socks, flowy white pants and tops, and wowza pink pants.
 
 
 
Orange fringe poncho? Yes please!
 
 
 
Hmm…this style looks suspciously familiar. Maxi dress, flat sandals, and braids. Chic and easy.
