The reason why the 60s fashion had big prints, bright colours, kitten heels and plastic jewellery was because there was so much happening in music, society, policits and morals that it was bound to happen in fashion. This was the time when the street fashion was invading the catwalk and when Bridgette Bardot went down in history for refusing Coco Chanel, who offered to dress the young generation's idol in elegant free of charge clothes, which Barbot dismissed saying ' couture is for grannies' and stuck to her unconventional fashion boutique clothes.
As you guys might know if you follow me on social media that one of my favourite fashion icons of today is the beautiful Alexa Chung. I was lucky to find some pictures of Alexa wearing 60s clothing today and how similar it is but with a different twist.
What do you love about the 1960s? I would love to hear from you.
