60’s Chic

February 1, 2013

Did you hear? The 60’s are back. Flower Power prints and bright citrus hues dominated the SS13 runways, bringing back in style shift dresses, mohair separates and sunny floral motifs with a fresh and tasteful twist. It seems that both high-end designers and high-street retailers are all jumping on this bandwagon. Creating ranges and collections to provide us Fashionista’s with plentiful of bright options when it comes to looking our very best this Spring/Summer.

The good thing about embracing fashion trends from by gone eras is that designers can pick and choose what they liked from the past whilst adding a modern twist to the picture. Take Moschino’s SS13 Resort Collection for example, showcasing the typical 60’s vivid floral prints whilst applying contemporary geometric cuts to the range.

Though the times have changed and so many trends these days come and go so quickly, it’s clear that the influence of the 60’s chic look will continue to inspire designers and Fashionista’s alike endlessly.

So it’s official then, it’s time to take the 60’s fashion trend, out of the style archives and bring the craze back into our lives. Swing into a sunshine state of mind during the warmer seasons to come and sport your best modern Brigitte Bardot look. And while we are on the topic of iconic 60’s fashion icons, let’s not forget we have this by gone era to thank for bringing us Twiggy and Eddie Sedgwick. It seems for those reasons alone, we are eternally grateful.

I like the idea of picking and choosing the aspects of previous eras you like. Otherwise, I think, it looks too much like a costume. And that dress is gorgeous!!
