7 Ways To Rock The 60s Trend
In case you haven't heard, the 60s trend is set to be huge this year. At some point, all styles come back around, bigger and better than...
1. Wear Polka Dots
As you know, polka dots were a huge fashion trend in the 60s. There are many other patterns you can wear too, like geometric shapes and swirls. However, polka dots are the main pattern that symbolises the 60s. Don't be afraid to mix polka dots of different size and colour, to create a really psychedelic look. If you can't find any patterns you like, don't be afraid to go for large sequins for a 60s disco feel! You should be able to find something that looks great on you.
2. Choose Right Shapes
60s style is a lot about the shapes you wear too. They often wore billowy dresses, bell sleeves and other funky shapes.
3. Mix Contrasting Colors
The 60s was colorful to say the least. None of this boring brown and beige rubbish! Neutral colors should be forgotten if you want to rock this trend. Instead, wear green, blue, pink, purple, and other bright colors. Make sure they contrast for a real 60s feel. Although browns and beiges weren't that popular, the monochrome look worked. If you can't bear to cover yourself in the colors of the rainbow, mix black and white for a look that Twiggy would be proud of.
4. Master Your Makeup
The 60s isn't just about the fashion; it's about the makeup too. They loved playing about with eyeliner and long lashes, so practice this yourself with some stick on lashes and a liquid liner brush. Nude lips were popular too!
5. Get a Hair Cut
If you really want to look like a 60s expert, you could get your haircut to look like Twiggy, Francoise Hardy, and Audrey Hepburn. You don't necessarily need to have it cut into a new style; you could simply learn how to style it 60s style.
6. Research 60s Fashion Icons
Research 60s fashion icons online and find your favourites among them. You can then look to them for inspiration!
7. Mix Vintage & Modern
The key with wearing old trends in the modern day is to mix both vintage and modern styles to add a new twist on the trend. You don't want to dress head to toe 60s, as it may look like fancy dress. Feel free to shop in vintage shops for real 60s pieces, just be sure they suit you. Don't buy 60s for the sake of it, if it doesn't look good on you!
