Fashion Photography: Outdoor Style in Woodstock

2017-09-16 4

One of the best things that happened in the 20th century was a music festival that liberated music, musicians and music lovers themselves. And before we have Coachella, we had Woodstock pioneer the wanderlust aesthetic.

Listed as one of the 50 Moments that Changed the History of Rock and Roll according to Rolling Stone, the event took place in Bethel, New York, just in a 600-acre dairy farm of White Lake, and it ran for August 15 to 18,1969. The festival site was then enlisted in the National Register of Historic Places.

And so, with the remnants of summer still lingering on you, here were some of the best styles and attitudes that were part of the woodsy message. Self-expression through bell bottoms, knit dresses, crop tops, bandanas, waved, unwashed locks, tie-dyes and more have never been as iconic as it was in this fleeting moment of history. We have the photographers present in the festival to thank them for this stylish time capsule.
