The fashion of the 1960s embodied a new, laid-back sense of freedom. Longer skirts were swapped for minis, while groovy flared jeans took the place of starch-pressed capris. Fashion icons like Brigitte Bardot and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis were admired and often emulated, encouraging onlookers to experiment with their own personal styles. Get inspired by these '60s fashion trends—and learn how to channel them in the present day.


The Mini Skirt

Once controversial, the above-the-knee hemline is back in a big way. Peppered with checkered prints and cold weather textures like tweed, the leggy skirt silhouette is best worn for fall with opaque tights and classic ballet flats or with socks and a loafer.

The Striped T-Shirt

The '60s wasn't all psychedelic tie-dyes and paisley prints. The simple Breton striped top was made famous by French cinema star, Jane Seberg in the 1960 film Breathless. Style the effortless tee with jeans and a low-top sneaker or tucked into a flowing maxi skirt with a mule.

The Flare Pant

A symbol of rebellion, the '60s gave way to flared denim styles and bold printed pants that were hard to miss. You can still wear a pair of the party pants today, but try something minimal up top like a simple navy blazer or a cozy cable knit.
