Home Style Fashion Sweet Sixties: The Comeback Style

sixtiescomebackMake the Swingin’ Sixties a part of your winter wardrobe!

As every fashionista knows, history repeats itself. We are constantly pulling the hottest trends from yesteryear and making them our own in modern times.

This season, fashions from the sixties have been popping up on runways all over. From shift dresses, pastel colors, and geometric bobs, the ‘60s are swinging back in full force.

Here are some of our favorite ‘60s revivals and how to incorporate them into your wardrobe!

Shift Dressessweet-sixties-the-comeback-style-1

The shift dress is one of the staples in ‘60s fashion and can be easily incorporated into anyone’s closet. Whether you opt for long sleeve, cap sleeve, or sleeveless, the straight cut of a shift dress is comfortable and flattering for all figures.

During cooler temperatures, pair a long sleeve shift dress with a pair of opaque tights and ankle booties. A sleeveless shift dress with a collar pairs great with a blazer, cardigan, or can be layered with a sweater. If you're feeling daring, go bare legged with a pair of knee high go-go boots. (Or regular knee high boots. We don't want to be too literal!)

Geometric Patterns

Shift dresses and other pieces come in all different funky patterns and can dress up even the most conservative outfits. When rocking a geometric pattern, keep your accessories understated: small earrings, solid colored handbags and tights, etc. Get the Look: Geometric sweater: blackfive.com ($27)

Angled Bobs


In recent years, our favorite celebs have been rocking choppy, angled bobs for a fresh look on the red carpet. This trend didn't come out of nowhere: retro fashionistas like Twiggy rocked the bob long before Victoria Beckham was even heard of.

A geometric bob isn't for everyone. It requires a lot of upkeep, a certain bone structure, and developing a close personal friendship with your stylist. However, if you're looking for a drastic change this season, an angled bob is definitely worth a try!

Mini Skirts
