Fashion recycles itself. Bold colors and geometric prints of the 60’s era are in full force this summer. Patterns in checkerboard, jailbird stripes, and contrasting colors scream retro! The 60′s were about short A-line dresses, plastic jewelry, kitten heels, bold psychedelic prints, bright colors and mini-skirts.
According to Louis Vuitton, Moschino and Michael Kors, 60’s fashion is making a mark in this summer’s latest trends. You don’t have to dress like Twiggy or a hippie from head to toe to get that ultra-CHIC mod look! Try mixing and matching classic pieces to achieve the look.
POPS OF BRIGHT COLORS
Try pairing a bold, vibrant print top with a simple mini skirt for a modern look. For a more vintage look, add accessories such as kitten heels or a retro inspired pair of cat-eyeglasses.
SHORT A-LINE DRESSES
A-line dresses are a perfect representation of 60′s fashion, but they don’t have have to be so plain Jane (unless you are going for that look). Add a cool twist to an A-line dress with a vibrant hat or plastic jewelry .
Geometric prints with a psychedelic flare brings ’60s-era glam to the forefront. Louis Vuitton utilized bright neon colors in a palette that reflected the eye-catching aesthetics of the mod look.
The mod 60′s era is by far the most vibrant and fun style to follow this summer. There are plenty of classic icons such as, Bridgette Bardot, Janis Joplin, and Twiggy, to pull inspiration from who set the style agenda for that decade. Try recreating some of their looks to get a head start on keeping your wardrobe on trend this summer.
