Wearability Factor: Medium.
How to Wear It: The youthquake and innocence of the Swinging 60s was evoked by babydoll dresses, tent dresses, high-waisted sheath and A-line looks, Jackie O style oversized sunglasses, colorblocking, cutouts, and the elegantly oversized overcoat. Keep your look modern by including no more than two (and preferably just one) of these elements in any given look. Remember, it’s 2005–not 1965.
Where in Trend Lifecycle: Fashion’s eternal fascination with decades past, combined ith the new decade’s push for eclecticism and individuality means that we’ll be seeing modern takes on 1960s styles for some time. The 60s aren’t really anything new–this trend resurfaced on the runway in a big way for Fall 2003 with Marc Jacobs’ colorful mod-inspired collection.
