Since I was still in JHS & HS back in the 1960s, I thought I'd look up the cultural trends to remind myself:

 

Lava Lamps
Tye-Dye
The Twist
Peace Symbol
Surfing
Fallout Shelters
Go-Go Boots
Mini Dresses
Skateboards
Black Lights
Hippie Beads
Bell Bottoms
Chinese Fire Drill
Smiley Faces
Afros
Granny Glasses
 
To be honest, I don't think I'd want to bring any of them back .. except the Granny Glasses. These days I wear frameless glasses .. similar to the ones my own granny wore!

Sideboards or sideburns. Bring them back. Especially the wide shaggy ones that end at the curvature of the jaw. They were groovy in 1967 and they’d be groovy today.

Well, I was a baby in the 60s and emancipated and living in the wilderness in 1973, so the pop culture trends of the era were largely lost on me, however, the thing I notice society, especially the online permutation, is missing these days that it was not missing then is courtesy.
