A 60s Summer: The Emerging 1960s Fashion Trends of 2022

Y2K, utility dressing, regencycore, low-rise jeans, balaclavas and the coastal grandmother look are just some of the fashion trends to have emerged in 2022. Fueled by social media and spurred on by increased output from fashion labels, the trend cycle in 2022 is fast-paced and varied, and it seems there’s another fun and frivolous trend to try: the 60s summer revival.

Although we’re heading into winter here in the southern hemisphere, 60s-inspired summer silhouettes are set to feature heavily in this year’s summer trends. Spotted across fashion influencers’ Instagrams and on the runway, style elements of the swinging 60s are being incorporated into everyday wear. From the shift dresses, mini skirts, mod prints and co-ords popularised by the British mod movement to the more hippie-style silk headscarves and accessories.

Here are some of the key emerging 60s fashion trends that are guaranteed to add some colour and flair to your summer wardrobe.

Babydoll gowns

Exuding feminity, the 60s-style babydoll nightgown is being repurposed as a cute and casual summer dress. With its square or high-cut neckline, flouncy look and use of lace, the babydoll dress or nightgown adds the perfect element of softness against contrasting edgy accessories like leather boots.

Sophisticated co-ords

Inspired by the chic skirt and blazer numbers worn by Jackie Kennedy, the classic 60s tweed co-ord trend is making a comeback. Harnessing the popularity of the mini skirt, these matching skirt and blazer sets say put-together while still being spring and summer appropriate.

Shift dresses

Continuing on the resurgence of 60s silhouettes is the timeless shift dress. Combined with bold block colours, the shift dress in its mod-form presents a timeless wardrobe staple that can be dressed up or down.

Mod prints

The predecessor to the staple boho-style prints of the 70s, mod prints feature earthy tones with pops of pink and plenty of floral patterns. With summer fashion lending itself well to all things bright and colourful, this 60s-style trend is a fun and easy way to spruce up an outfit.

Silk scarves

As well as hiding a bad hair day, silk scarves have the ability to effortlessly elevate any look. Styled with oversized sunglasses, a silk scarf like this one from Louis Vuitton is sure to bring some sophistication to your outfit.
