1960s Fashion Trends: How to Recreate A 1960s Look
The 1960s was an iconic decade for fashion, bringing trends such as mini skirts, go-go boots and statement, bright patterns. With many daring to push the envelope with their fashion choices, the 1960s was deeply inspired by the civil rights movement and breaking loose from the restrictions of the past. Females found a new sense of independence in the 60s, along with many female icons helping shape the new fashion era.
Check out these 60s wardrobe staples you need to style your new retro look.
Kitten Heel Pumps and Mary Janes
Footwear in the 60s took a trip down memory lane, with childhood shoes making a return. Dainty Mary Janes and flat sneakers were the go-to footwear, paired with dresses, jumpsuits and anything your heart desired. Gorgeous microsuede kitten heels, a much lower version of the high-heeled pump also featured within this fashion era, perfect for any formal outing when you want to add a touch of timeless class.
The women's jumper dress was a playful part of the 1960s and gave a youthful appearance to any woman that strutted her stuff in them. Jumper dresses were often embellished with large bows, polka dots and pastel colours, along with a wave of psychedelic prints for the early hippie movement. Today, jumper dresses are a little more understated and chic but still pay homage to the classic silhouette from the 60s.
70s Fashion is Back & These Pieces Can Help You Channel Your Boho Style
The 70s was a time of freedom and connection with nature, shown through neutral colour palettes, earthy tones and bohemian looks. However, there was another side to the 1970s, which eluded bright colours, statement sequins and glamorous women’s tailored suits. With clashing patterns, crochet tops, psychedelic prints, double denim, fur coats and cowboy boots, the 70s really was a time to make a statement when it came to fashion.
Check out these 70s wardrobe staples you need to style your look.
Tie-Dye Fashion Pieces
Part of American culture since the 1920s, but grew in popularity rapidly in the 70s, tye-dye was a staple print throughout the era. The tye-dye technique made its way onto blankets, graphic t-shirts, incredible tie-dye trousers and crossbody bags, all in a kaleidoscope of stunning colours. It is the perfect middle ground between comfort and fashion and is a statement piece that will do all the talking.
In the 1970s, platform shoes and boots were the in-look and extremely popular among the younger generation. In the 70s, it was a case of higher the better and were a great go-to when you want to stand above the crowd - and they’re still a huge trend even to this day. If you want to accessorise a 1970s throwback outfit, check out these stunning platform shoes that embody retro flair and boho charm.
A fashion statement that has stayed throughout the years but became a huge hit in the 1970s was bell sleeves. With a tight fit at the shoulders and then flared from the elbow and wrist, this flirty fashion trend is once again making waves within fashion today. From stunning bell-sleeve tunics to summer shirts that will leave you feeling floaty, free and fabulous, bell sleeves are cute paired with high-waisted flared jeans and a pair of strappy sandal platforms.
Boho Style is Taking the World By Storm Thanks To Daisy Jones & The Six
Those who have already watched Daisy Jones & The Six will know that it’s full of colourful characters. With an array of 70s boho style vibes, you will want to look at each character's looks and opt for one style that suits you best before adding anything Daisy Jones-looking to your wardrobe.
This is far from the first time 70s fashion has been splashed across the shops thanks to a popular TV show. But whether you want to dive headfirst into the free-loving vibe, or just fancy testing the waters with a tassel-trimmed bag or a pair of embellished flared jeans, you can find the perfect Daisy Jones & The Six-inspired looks below.
Swimsuits and Shackets
In Daisy Jones & The Six, we saw Karen give us a look worthy of our summer 2023 fashion mood boards. Instead of a free-flowing bathing suit coverup, she paired her retro cutout swimwear with an army green button-down shacket and dark denim shorts. This is a look you will undoubtedly be seeing on the beach this summer!
High Waisted Jeans, Boho Blouses and Cowboy Boots
When people picture fashion in the 70s, they may head straight for flowy blouses, high-waisted bell-bottom jeans and warm-toned clothing. A key look throughout the Daisy Jones & The Six series, bell bottoms and blouses were styled with the ultimate cowboy boots. This look is ultra-flattering, thanks to the leg-lengthening powers of this pant silhouette coupled with the pointed toe on a cowboy boot.
Paisley Print Skirt, Turtleneck and Statement Belt
When it comes to turtlenecks, there are plenty of ways to style them and they were a true classic to have in your wardrobe in the 70s. Elegant and sophisticated when paired with a trendy paisley print maxi skirt, try adding a statement belt fastened right at your natural waist to spice things up a bit.
Fringe Vests, Denim Mini Skirts and Knee-High Boots
Daisy Jones & The Six’s fashion would be a miss if there weren’t a touch of fringe, especially by the way of cropped vests. Rock a statement fringe vest with a classic denim mini skirt and knee-high boots. Or why not try incorporating fringe into your looks via accessories, like handbags and earrings?
