60s Fashion Trends that You Can Easily Wear Today

There are so many fashion trends from previous decades that I am so not ready to be back in style (I’m looking at you 90s fashion!), but I am embracing the 60s comebacks with extra wide open arms. There were so many exceptionally stylish women in the 1960′s that I’ve always admired—Twiggy, Jackie O, and Jean Shrimpton just to name a few. 60s fashion was the epitome of effortless style with simple lines and minimal accessorizing yet each ensemble was as charming as can be.

From platforms to shift dresses, take a look at these 60s fashion trends that you can (and should) wear today!

    I'm slightly obsessed with Peter Pan collars so it's safe to say this is my favorite 60s trend that has made a big come back. They are delicate, sophisticated and overtaking my wardrobe one dress at a time!

    60s model Twiggy wore boxy shift dresses like they were going out of style. They are flattering and can be styled many different ways. A black one is a staple in my closet—I love the zippered pockets on this one from ASOS.

    The 60's was definitely a time full of bright, fun coats. I love the idea of wearing a coat as a statement piece in your outfit. This amazing red one has an extra 60s look thanks to the double Peter Pan collar.

    If you look back at photos in the 60s you'll see bright plastic hoop earrings on every woman! I'm not much of an earring person but I love the look of these to instantly add a fun touch to your outfit.

    Big floral prints, bright geometric shapes, mixing patterns—all 60s trends that are making their way back into our closets. I have a big thing for jumpsuits so this bright floral one is making me swoon. I want to wear it every single day, forever.

    Platforms and clogs (especially wooden ones) are another 60s obsessed of mine. These ones are timeless and can be worn with literally everything you own!

    Say goodbye to tiny string bikinis and hello to gorgeous and feminine one-pieces that have so much more character. I'm a big fan of these 60s style suits that keep me comfortable and confident in my new-mom body.
