Fashion Flashback: 1960s

My goodness! I can't believe it's been two weeks since my last post. 2013 has been a pretty damn hectic year for my so far, so as you can see my blog has kind of taken a backseat. But for now, my exams are over and I feel there is a great weight off my shoulders, so I can get back to doing fun things now that I have more free time - like running this blog properly again!
Fashion Flashback is a series of affordable, modern outfits that take inspiration from the fashion of past decades. If you'd like to see my last post on 1950s fashion, check it out here. This time it's all about the 1960s!

The sixties was an important time for fashion. It saw the rise of many items which are still wardrobe staples to this day, such as mini skirts and ballet flats, and fashion was fun and flirty. One of the most famous fashion icons of the decade was fashion model Twiggy, famous for her unique, androgynous look and thin figure.

Items featured:
1. Dress from Topshop / £46.00
2. Bangle from Macy's / £12.29
3. Bangle from Mango / £10.00
4. Earrings from Dorothy Perkins / £5.00
5. Shoes from Republic / £18.00
Total = £91.29

Inspiration pictures taken from here and here.

Both monochrome and bright colours were in fashion during the 1960s, so I wanted this outfit to give a little nod to both. Shift dresses won't look great on everyone, but if you substitute it for a LBD that suits your body shape then I think this makes for a timeless outfit! So, what do you think of the style of the 60s? What's your favourite decade for fashion?
As always, thank you so much for reading, and comments are very much appreciated.
Tons of love,


  1. I love 60s style, but as you mentioned, the dresses don't look great on everyone. Unfortunately, I am one of those people. I love the look you put together :)

    1. Yep, I think I'm probably one of those people too! It's a shame that dresses from the 60s seem to be aimed at a particular bodyshape, but at least there are loads of other cute trends (chunky jewellry, cute prints, bright colours etc.) to make up for it.

  2. What a cute post! I absolutely love 60s style. <3

    1. Thanks so much, glad you liked it!
