Vintage Top Ten - 1960s Fashion
There isn't much I don't LOVE about the 1960s and if I could have been a teenager in any other decade than the 90s, it would have had to be then. The huge cultural reset, the music, the youth revolution and of course the fashion. From the slick futuristic looks Courrèges style, to the boho flower power, the psychedelic Strawberry Fields and so much more. The beehives and dark dolly eye makeup looks, the colour palettes from pretty pastels to deep vivid jewel brights. There are so many 60s looks that still look amazingly stylish to this day. Combine a 60s vintage mini skirt with opaque tights and a roll neck jumper for a sleek office look or go full daisy print for that quintessential 60s hippy vibe. With that in mind, I have pulled together my top ten vintage picks from the 1960s from the vast collection at My Vintage. We always have amazing items in stock so be sure to check the website regularly or pop in to see us at the shop. These items are all available as I write this week's blog but if you love something, be sure to grab it before someone else does! OK, let's get stuck in with our Vintage Top Ten...
