Every Halloween, someone else attending at least one of the parties I go to dresses like a 1960s hippie. It’s usually a pretty good costume, but I always want to pull that poor soul aside and show them the other aspects of the fashion from that era, the gorgeous colors, the beautiful details… because once I do, I know they’ll want to wear the look themselves! If you agree that there’s more to 60s fashion than fringed hippie stuff, then keep reading! Here are 7 ways to incorporate 1960s fashion into your look.
1. Just Pollen’ Around Top
Price: $39.99 at modcloth.com
This super-soft, 100% cotton strapless top is all details, from its all-over lace bodice to the gorgeous yellow and blue embroidery along the top and at the hem. Wear it all summer with a long peasant skirt or in winter with a denim jacket and corduroy skirt with knee boots.
2. Dandelion Wishes Dress
Price: $54.99 at modcloth.com
This lacy mini dress is all 1930s, from its a-line design to its ruffled, lacy sleeves and its rounded Peter Pan collar. Wear it with opaque tights and thick-heeled pumps with a buckle at the toe, and loads of black kohl eyeliner.
3. Craft Market Maven Dress
Price: $95.99 at modcloth.com
Three colors dominated late 60s fashion — harvest gold, deep rust, and this color, pea green. It’s the highlight of this gorgeous dress, but I also adore the rolled cowl neck, the mid-calf length, and the flattering self belt. Take the trend to the next level with stacked heel pumps, a pill-box hat, and big sunglasses.
