Wearable Early 1960's Styles

With the return of both British show 'The Hour' and the hit American show 'Mad Men', 1960's style is booming. Think 1960's and we think mini skirts, Biba, big twiggy eyes with perfect liquid eyeliner and flower power, but The Hour/Mad Men Style has a more mature and professional feel. As with the 'Wearable 1920's Styles' you might want to incorporate parts of the 1960's themes into your wardrobe without looking too over the top! But I say go for it!

In the late 1950's/early 1960's the full skirt that was made popular by Dior's Corelle range in 1947 was still popular, but the pencil skirt which was also launched at that time began to push ahead and become the most worn skirt in the 1960's (with pumps!). For the profession woman in the early 1960's, Jackie O was a big influence! Jackie Kennedy was known for her pastel suits with large buttons.
