The impact of the mod look was felt a few years into the decade in school wear. Young women wore as high a miniskirt as they could get away with, and brighter colors and patterns filled the school halls. But the first half of the 1960s, especially in high schools, was characterized by a general tendency to maintain a conservative manner of school dress codes.
What if you were called out of class for wearing your favorite sweater but it was “too revealing”?The first school law to require a dress code was was established in 1969 by the U.S. Supreme Court, known as the Tinker vs. Des Moines Independent School District case.
