The Fashion Time Machine: 60s

There is no season that goes by referencing a trend from 60s. That decade is considered to be a groundbreaking period in the fashion world, since it brought radical changes not only to the way people used to look, but also to their lifestyle and outlook. Anti-war movement, second-wave feminism, movement against racial discrimination against black Americans, the first man in space and space exploration in general – all these events inevitably influenced lives of ordinary people, which in turn had an impact on the way they expressed themselves through clothing.

Gypsy style

Peasant blouses, fringed suede jackets, floral dresses and headbands, wide-brimmed hats - these are basic elements of gypsy style or so-called ‘bohemian chic’, which was adopted by hippies. We can easily imagine you hanging out in such suede wedges at the Woodstock music festival.

Space-age chic

The space race in the 60s had young designers competing to create out-of-this world styles. They clearly understood that interstellar travel for the masses was inescapable and, understandably, we`d all need to look chic and fashionable on the moon or another distant planet. Their view on what people should wear during space journey was pretty naïve, which is proved by various sci-fi movies of those times.

Kitten heel

The current mod fashion revival has made many popular 60s shoes come back around. Kitten heel shoes definitely top this list. Actress Audrey Hepburn and former First Lady of the USA Jackie Kennedy are largely to thank for popularizing these elegant yet comfortable shoes. Fashionistas from the 60s preferred to combine them with babydoll dresses, mini skirts and A-line dresses.

Geometry

Thanks to the rising interest in pop art and abstract art, the fashion world was swept by the wave of geometric prints. Multi-coloured or monochrome, plain or elaborate, or even psychedelic – an abundance of options for all tastes. In these striped shoes you would easily look as a typical visitor of various art exhibitions from the 60s.
