1960s History

There’s no denying that the ’60s were one of the most impactful eras in fashion.  60s were the time of setting the tone for modern style and it was mainly revolutionised with bold colours and cuts. Till today fashion is still influenced by designers and stylists from that time. In early 60s, Jackie Kennedy was a big fashion idol with her perfect white pearls and tailored dresses. Somewhere in the middle of the decade, Twiggy along with other role models exposed women to new styling where they didn’t require any extra thought or effort.
