whowhatwear– There’s a new decade in town (again), and it’s giving the ’90s a run for its money. As we know very well, all things ’90s have dominated fashion for quite some time now, to the point that we’ve pretty much been through every trend by now—from scrunchies to slip dresses. But like it or not, a new decade is here to potentially eclipse the popularity of the ’90s: the swinging ’60s. Ultimate aesthetic goal? The Brady Bunch and Bewitched.
Those retro florals, wavy mirrors, shaggy rugs, mushroom prints, and shades of orange, brown, and yellow that you’ve been seeing all over Instagram are not a fluke. The fashion of the ’60s was colorful and fun, tailored yet relaxed, and home décor was equally “groovy”, not holding back when it came to color combinations and curved lines. It’s all very uplifting and Instagrammable, which says something about why people are embracing the distinctive decade now.
During the pandemic, dressing up has obviously gone by the wayside, and people are missing it more and more. It explains why the bold, experimental fashion of the ’60s is gaining such popularity these days, and décor is a natural extension of that. While we’re spending so much time at home, it’s only natural to want to infuse some personality into our space and make them a place we want to be all day every day.
