The 60s fashion was the epitome of effortless style with simple lines and minimal accessorizing yet each ensemble was so charming.

The fashion during that decade was bi-polar in just about every way. The early sixties were more reminiscent of the 1950s — conservative and restrained; certainly more classic in style and design. The late 1960s were the exact opposite. Bright, swirling colours. Psychedelic, tie-dye shirts and long hair and beards were commonplace. Woman wore unbelievably short skirts and men wore tunics and capes.

The foray into fantasy would not have been believed by people just a decade earlier. It’s almost like the 1950s bottled everyone up so much that the late 1960s exploded like an old pressure cooker. Women were showing more skin than ever before. I love the long, slender shapes, the bright colours and the young, London look. I have always wished the Mod style stuck around a little longer. Check out some of my favourite trends from the 60s that we can rock today!
