Although men and fashion are two far ends of the rope, there are a lot of things happening in men’s fashion. There is a serious and visible change in trends for men’s fashion in India. As we are witnessing the fashion revolution for men’s fashion today, the same fashion evolution took place in the late fifties and early sixties. Fashion trends in 60’s were a welcome change for fashionmongers for the overpowering and over-the-top fashion from 50’s was finally replaces with something good. I personally love vintage trends and am not at all surprised to see its comeback on fashion horizon today.
Who doesn't like those funky colors and bold patterns from the sixties! That’s what really made me come up with my previous write-up about fashion in 60’s.
If you ask me to describe men’s fashion of the sixties, I have only word for it - revolutionary! It was a revolution all around! It got rid of the plain and sober look of the past with standout arrivals. So much so that 60’s stands out as the most defining era of fashion on the whole! I think the highlights of men’s clothing in 60’s were vivacious colors, floral designs, polka dots, bell bottoms, paisley designs, velvet, big belts and loads of fresh colors! Similar to all the fashion trends there were a few clothing pieces and fashion accessories that made their mark and are still popular!

What could you pair the funky bell bottom pants with? Of course tie dye t-shirts and shirts! I remember my Grandfather’s photographs on sum rusty beach wearing those rainbow-like tees! So cool!
