A Decade of Fab: The 60’s

I don’t even know where to begin with the sixties. Mods? Rockers? Jackie O? Twiggy? Early Hippies? The 1960’s were a huge time for fashion; there was a much wider variety of trends and styles than previous decades. Skirts got shorter, boots got taller, styles became more risque and eccentric.

Colors/Prints: Brights, Rich colors, Black, White, Color blocking, Crazy prints, Checkered print, Paisley, Space inspired silver and spacey prints

Face/Hair: Bouffant, Afros, Bobs, Pixie cut, Short thick bangs, Exaggerated eyeliner, Pastel eyeshadow, Nude lips,

Watch: Mad Men (of course), Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Barbarella, Young Birds Fly

Read Into: Jean Shrimpton, Brigitte Bardot, André Courrèges, Mary Quant

    Below-the-knee culottes too. I had pair of brown wool jersey culottes and a dark green leather jacket, both by Ossie Clark. The jacket was very similar to the one in the picture.
    I wore my hair Twiggy style, short and bleached, but yes, big eyes, pale lips and boots, boots, boots, of course :- )
