The 60′s are one of the more memorable fashion decades of the last century. the 60′s saw the coming of full living color and with color photography came incredible prints and fashion color. The 1960′s saw the coming of the first supermodel, Twiggy, and a whole new look that would shape fashion and style for many years to come.
The 1950′s were full of well tailored, slim skirts, tweed was big. The free flowing, free thinking 60′s brought free flowing fashion as well. Skirts and dresses became more free form, free and flowing. Tightly fitted suits became a thing of the past and women seemed happy with softer fabrics and much more comfort and movement in their garments. Fabrics became more shear and swim suits got a bit smaller… lets check em out.
Twiggy is still a fashion icon today and I gotta admit I really enjoy her on the show “America’s Next Top Model” where she has been on the judging panel. The 1960′s were an awesome time for high fashion and I would love to see a return to some of that 1960′s wild print style.
The looks below from the sixties are just gorgeous, and the models look absolutely insane, this is before computer photo retouching…
