It would not be wrong to say that the era of 60’s was the era when fashion was at its peak. New trends were coming into existence and the old trends were also being polished and transformed according to the standards of the new time. Some of the fashion styles which were launched during the 60’s are still in vogue today. This article will point out these fashion trends which have withstood 50 years. As we all know that the hippy culture came into being in 1960’s, it brought with it many trends such as headscarves and headbands. Headscarves are what we now call bandannas.
Mini skirts were very popular among the young girls of this period. These skirts were knee length or a little above the knees. New brands and designers were emerging and they were constantly trying to bring a change in every little or big fashion trend of the past. Experiments were done on many different fabrics to create miniskirts. Prints such as polka dot and stripes were immensely popular during this age; most miniskirts had these patterns and prints. Even today, such prints and patterns are in fashion.
Pleated skirts with pleats on both the back and the front sides of the skirts were popular among the women and girls of all ages. Today, this trend is again emerging among young girls. As mentioned earlier, prints and patterns were given a lot of importance so apart from stripes and polka dots, floral prints were also highly in trend. However, polka dots were the most famous among all, during the time.
One of the most important and popular fashion trends of the 1960’s includes the bikinis. These bikinis were thought to be very bold by some of the people but they still became very popular and the favorite among women of those times. The trend of Polka Dot Bikini was so famous during this age that many popular swimsuit designers and brands offered these.
