The most enduring image of the Beatles is probably that of the Fab Four clad in matching Mod suits and haircuts in the mid-1960s. But the Beatles sampled several different looks on their road to stardom, from leather-jacketed rockers in the late 1950s to sporting ethno-hippie styles in the late 1960s. For a brief time they even owned the Apple Boutique, a clothing store in London. Explore the many ways that fashion defined the looks and lives of the Beatles.
