March 27, 2013Fashion Time Travelling: 1967
So who else is eagerly anticipating Mad Men’s two hour premiere on April 7th? I know I definitely am! Mad Men last left off in 1966, however since they usually jump ahead a bit in time, I am speculating they’ll pick up in 1967. (Disclaimer: no spoiler intended here, this is strictly speculation on my part!)
This got me thinking about 1967 fashion trends and what the characters might end up wearing this season. So come and speculate along with me!
(Note: all patterns shown are from Etsy, clicking on them will take you to the Etsy listing)
In early 1967, the mod look (or London Look) was very much all the rage. We saw Megan Draper wear a few mod style dresses last year, and I would expect we might see more. I could totally see Megan wearing something like this:
Twiggy was definitely hot amongst teens, and I am sure that Sally Draper is no exception. I could totally see her wearing something like this, but maybe a little shorter (if Don will allow it!)
I am sure we will see more of little Tammy Campbell this season, and I am betting when we do, we’ll see her in something like this:
Menswear is going to change big time. Suit lapels are going to start getting bigger and ties are going to get a lot wider. I am sure the younger guys will embrace this look, but what about Don? His skinny ties are going to look awfully dated soon!
Although the bouffant styles are not totally passé, shorter hairstyles are starting to emerge, as well as ringlets:
I think Peggy would look really cute with a short crop, but I fear she’ll stick with that flip forever!
I hope you had fun on my trip down speculation lane! For some more styles of the time, here’s a YouTube video showing the Paris fashions of 1967. Enjoy!
