For all of the talk about our generationís dwindling attention span and the shortening of pop culture cycles, there are certain movements that endure for generations. One of these has been Beatlemania. The Beatles are universally considered as rock musicís most important group. A band that swept the world by storm with their infectious pop and their adventurous and constantly evolving sound, The Beatles also had a major impact on something else Ė fashion.
Despite being together for less than a decade, The Beatles were fashion icons who constantly played with their image. Itís impossible to point to one unifying aspect of beatles fashion. A group that popularized mop top haircuts and suits in their early days, beatles fashion also encompasses elements of hippy culture and during their really, really early days Ė greaser fashion. Aspects of the beatles fashion for women can be seen in the popularity of female hippy fashion. Of course thereís more to fashion beatlemania than simple psychedelica. From the shaggy look the group employed in their last years to the classic John Lennon rounded glasses, beatles fashion is slowly becoming recognized as its own unique fashion movement. As enduring as their music, beatles fashion is a great source of fashion inspiration.
