Hey Style Setters!
Fashion is time traveling yet again, and this time it’s bringing us back to the days of retro sexy. That’s right; the swinging 60’s are back, baby. Though we probably won’t see too many beehive hairdo’s (thank goodness!), you should prepare your closet for a classic rewind this fall. 1960’s Retro is now revamped with updated silhouettes, with emphasis on mod patterns and iconic shapes.
What kind of items can you incorporate into your wardrobe? Here we’ve compiled some of the sassiest swingin’ 60’s styles that are sure to bring you back to the old days but with a fresh new outlook…
It’s impossible to look back on the 60’s without remembering hippies! And thanks to the recent surge in boho festival fashion, the flower child look is already back on the style scene. Take your festival flower child look back to where it all began with a pair of super groovy booties. Mismatched patchwork is also an immediate 60’s throwback that’s sure to add a far out flare to any basic outfit.
Take a page out of Audrey Hepburn’s book and play up the class. A simple, pretty shift dress is a classic look that is perfectly complemented by pearl stud earrings, natural makeup and gorgeous pointed flats. Hepburn’s shift dress style is your shortcut to 60’s classic sexy – which is totally chic.
Patterns, patterns, patterns! This era was all about the quirky, fun prints. And luckily, wearing the retro print trend is pretty easy. Pick out psychedelic patterns… the more repetitive or trippy, the better. Warm colors will bring out your flirty side, whereas black and white give off a modern vibe – the choice is yours!
Perhaps one of the chicest ways to wear 60’s Retro is to get mod with it. Meaning, cool fabrics, metallic, and stark, clean lines. Add girly touches to a simple statement shift dress like cat-eye sunnies and thick, low sandals. Finish with a top knot or fab bouffant. Buying into the mod retro rewind will have you looking more fashion-forward than ever!
From posh prints to flirty florals – take your wardrobe back to the future and add a little groovy glam to your totally far out Fall look.
