As trend gives way to trend, we think the put together look of the 50s gave way to a quirkier, fun, and more adventurous 60s woman. The 60s fashion was fitting its time where women went unconventional and were fed up with being told how best to dress to be considered “a lady” by society and magazines. The hemlines got shorter and patterns mismatched. It was a period of unapologetic fashion rebellion. This 2021 and the preceding decade posses an overall eclectic style–infusing trends from different decades and giving them a chic twist. It’s really beautiful to be part of such a time as this. Some pieces from the 60s style have made it to the runways this season and as before, have once again added color and spice to our wardrobes.
Incorporate These 60s Fashion Trends Into Your Wardrobe For That Stylish Retro Touch
60s Fashion X Mini Skirts
The shorter the hemline, the hotter the ensemble. Mini skirts are hot right now and available in different cuts and fabrics. The leather mini skirt is a fast rising favorite of many style stars.
The matchy-mismatchy trend is totally in right now but let’s be guided; two is the maximum number of prints to be mismatched. Therefore, anything more would have you falling off this fashion train.
The Short Shorts
Before the 60s style movement, trousers were mainly seen as men’s clothing. However, the 60s woman not only broke the norm by wearing different types of trousers, but even wore mid cut trousers–aka shorts. This equality movement through fashion was indeed very brave. Try out 60s inspired short for that retro feel.
The bell bottoms from the 60s have evolved decade after decade from boot legs and are finally back with a bang. You can try this in denims, leather pants, or linens. There’s no wrong way to slay in them.
This type of clothing creates an illusion of a distortion to your silhouette, hence giving a stylish appeal. Pair a boxy dress or top with statement accessories for that 60s fashion vibe. What’s the use of bodycons when this staple is up for grabs!
