Those Neon Colors of the 60’s

The 60’s was a wild time, with diverse fashion trends.  It was a decade that broke many fashion traditions, mirroring social movements during the period.  The focus was on Colors & Tones, with accessories taking a back seat.   People were dressing in psychedelic prints, highlighter colors, and mismatched patterns was all the rage.

Many iconic designers & celebrities are associated with the 60’s such as Jackie Kennedy who gave us the “pillbox” hat, and Mary Quant who invented the “mini” skirt, and let’s not forget the “Stiletto” heel.

Scorpio Vintage is proud to be able to offer you a fine selection of 60’s fashions….that never go out of style.  Be the best dressed, from head to toe!

First up is the Iconic designer Malcolm Starr.  This brightly colored floral silk print is perfect for your summer affair.

Next we have a pair of Silk sling back stiletto pumps that show the true meaning of “neon” colors.

This next dress expresses the “Jackie Kennedy” style that was so popular.  Understated elegance in a slubbed silk.

This next dress epitomizes the 60’s love of bright colors.  I  call this print “lightning Bolts”, and is the perfect office attire as so often seen on the TV show “Mad Men”
