1960s fancy dress costumes are always great fun to wear, enabling you to be someone else for a night. While colourful, hippy outfits look great on their own, the accessories you choose will make your outfit really authentic and help to complete your look. Here are some accessory ideas for 60s costumes:
The 1960s gave birth to some of the most iconic and individual hairstyles of all time. Ladies wigs in 60s styles will help to give your fancy dress outfit the wow factor. Choose one in a style that complements your outfit. Beehive or flicked out styles look great, and you can top them off with a colourful hairband to match your dress.
- Make Up
Browse websites to find sixties inspired make up looks. Invest in some spiked false eyelashes and practice perfecting the iconic 1960s black eyeliner. Eye colours can be neutral, or bright to match a vibrant outfit, and use a soft pink or mauve on the lips.
- Gogo Boots
A pair of gogo boots will make your 1960s outfit complete. Choose a pair with a dramatic platform and in a bright colour that complements your outfit. Gogo boots can be uncomfortable, so it can be a good idea to practice walking in them for a few days before your party.
The 60s introduced some extremely revealing outfits into the fashion world. If you feel you would be uncomfortable in tight hot pants or an ultra-short mini skirt, consider wearing some coloured tights. They will look great with your 60s outfit while making it a bit less revealing!
