There are few fashion items more iconic and timelessly elegant than a 1960s swing coat or cape. The best part is that they are still so wearable today, by day or night. We're obsessed with the soft pastel colours and simple silhouettes of these coats. Which look is your favourite?
After World War II, Japanese fashion was highly influenced by the West, as you can see by these amazing spreads from a Japanese fashion magazineYoung Woman(1969). Western style silhouettes such as the mini skirt and slim fitting dresses can be seen, sometimesina subtle traditional Japanese floral print, merging the two worlds together. I'm obsessed with these looks which are giving me 90s Clueless vibes and would be totally wearable today.
This show was way before my time, but I'm having serious mini-envy from these screenshots of Barbara Eden on the hit TV showI Dream Of Jeannie(1965-1970). The boldcolours! The glossy teased hair!Herlegs! I've had some similar designs on the store before (shop dresses here).
The swinging 60s was a fabulous decade for fashion, music, cars and social transformation, however some of the hairstyles of the time were better left in the past. Take a look below and tell us what you think! Via Vintage Everyday
