February 22, 2011Mod Sixties Fashions
By Sablemable aka Jan
All this talk about the color orange lately here on the blog made me think about the Sixties; mod, Carnaby Street, psychodelic, flower-power clothing and accessories.
If you missed living during that time (1966-1969), or you don’t want to remember those years, let me show you what you’ve missed – or forgotten!
Mini-skirts, Breton Caps and Go-Go Boots, although I don’t ever remember the boots having a high heel. The go-go’s I had where white leather, flat heel and came up just past the ankle. I loved those boots!
One-shoulder, Toga style gowns with bold patterns of color.
Shoes were chunky, square-toed and came in vivid colors.
We’ve seen a comeback of what we currently call Gladiator sandals, but back in 1967, they were termed Roman sandals and Trojan sandals.
Pantsuits were the trend sometimes coming in three pieces; pants, jacket and skirt. Wonder why these haven’t come back into style? Just don’t bring back the polyester leisure suits! Yikes!
More “Boyfriend” looks. The short-sleeved ribbed- knit tops were dubbed “Poorboy” tops.
Sunglasses even changed from cat-eyes to op-art. I had a pair of these sunglasses, only mine were a baby blue color.
Would you like to see a return of the Mod Sixties clothing, readers?
