Bringing 60s Evening Dresses BackFebruary 13, 2018
1960s Evening Dresses
It’s time to bring the classic 1960s evening dress back to life. The 1960s brought great change to the fashion world – it was during this epic decade that the fashion capital of the world shifted from Paris to London, and suddenly, all eyes were on the UK. Evening dresses still retained the classy and sophisticated style from the 1950s – (minus the big poofy skirts). More and more women felt empowered to truly experiment with their style and not have their outfit choices be dictated by advertisers and big corporations.
60s Fashion Changed the Game
It’s safe to say that women in the 1960s were more able to embrace the quirky side of fashion, and be more open to individualism and experimentation with style. The clothes seen on women in the Western world reflected the changing social climate and the powerful movements of the time. Diversity in looks became the new norm, and it was no longer mainstream to stick to a certain clothing style. Evening dresses, like the classic silver and green brocade dress that Emilie is rocking, were worn by women all over the country. Match your 60s dress with a pair of classic vintage pumps like Emilie’s gold pair, and you’re ready for a night on the town.
