Thanks to TV shows like Mad Men, Call the Midwife, and Grantchester, the trend for late 1950s and 1960s dresses is going strong. Full swing dresses, pencil dresses and house dresses remained in the early 60s. Jackie-O was the style icon for dresses with flats and pillbox hats. Twiggy and her futuristic style made Mod dresses, black and white go go dresses, jumper dresses, and mini skirts return fashion to a more youthful shape. Then came the late 60s hippies with their tribal prints and earthy throwbacks. Learn more about 1960s fashion history here.
Today, mid to late 60s dresses are back in style in bright colors, colorblock, and flower power prints. Popular 60s dresses today are mod dresses, shift dresses, and hippie dresses with above-the-knee lengths. Use the 1960s menu to complete your 60s outfit with shoes, jewelry and accessories.
