The 1960s were famous for bold graphic prints and bright colors. And while the optimistic mood of the 1960s isn’t necessarily present today, you can still derive inspiration from these more innocent times. Here’s how to modernize the graphic look of the 1960s:
1. Juxtapose bright color and a statement making pattern: a bright royal blue tank and a black and white skirt with a bold polka dot pattern.
2. Add another layer of graphic pattern with a short sleeved jacket in an oversized buffalo plaid.
3. Finish off the look with complementary accessories: a sunny yellow pair of heels (to complement the blue tank) and a grey zipper-adorned handbag (that works with the black and white patterned pieces).
