When it comes to finding my own fashion inspiration, there is one limited-less resource that I always love going back to and find myself get lost into it. It's 1960s fashion. The huge success of AMC show "Mad Men" made the styles of the 1960s started getting more and more popular. While other trends don't last very long, the 1960s are known as one of the most fashion conscious times in history. From tie-dyes, pill box hat, miniskirt, suits in pastel colors, shorty boxy-style jackets, shift dresses, oversize sunglasses to multi-colored accessories, these are the most typical items in 1960s.
Suddenly, I have the urge to bring the 1960s back to the present and to have fun with it. The more I learn about the 1960s fashion style, the more I feel like I've just met my soulmate. The classic, sophisticated and feminine styles are what we share in common yet I still can't get enough of what 1960s fashion has to offer.
This year, Singapore Blog Award is celebrating the glorious 6th year with a 60s Fever theme. That means I'll have a perfect reason to dress up a little fancier in 60s fashion style without having to worry if I will be over-dressed in public.
Here are the 3 outfit pairing choices I created for my personal appearance at Singapore Blog Award this year. Hope they'll give you a better picture of what 1960s fashion is all about.
Two decades after her death and many more decades to come, I believe the fashion industry will still borrow her styling tips. I see myself as true Audrey Hepburn admirer in many ways and I do believe "Everyone has his own style. When you have found it, you should stick to it". I have found mine, have you found yours?
If not, I hope this blog entry will give you some ideas of what 1960s fashion is and if you decide to go with classic, trendy, chic and sophisticated style like I do, you've found some inspirations in my blog.
