Fashion comes and goes, but the 1960s was one of the most fun, memorable and colourful periods in style history.
Think: short shift dresses in block colours. Think: mini skirts as short as you’d dare. Think: flicked hair, big buttons, thick fringes, huge eyelashes, and clothes in pink, yellow, and red. Think: over-sized polka dots and mid-calf go-go boots. Think: earrings, preferably plastic. Think: PVC.
For men, it’s sharp suits with skinny ties. Jackets made with highly textured fabric. Or sharply-dressed mods in anoraks, buttoned shirts, slim-fit trousers and smart shoes. And towards the end of the decade, when hippies first put daisy chains in their hair, it was paisley, giant collars, tie-dyed fabric and flared trousers.
In the 1960s, cinema entered a golden era with the emergence of Brigitte Bardot, Sean Connery, Audrey Hepburn and Clint Eastwood.
