1960s Trends Are Back—3 Prints to Wear This Summer

Year after year, 1960s trends keep influencing our style. Lately, I’ve caught myself looking into all these prints with ’60s vibes. I seem to not be the only one. Scandinavian it-girls like Hanna Mw and Emilia Sindlev seem to be as mad about these prints as I am. This summer, trendsetters are filling up their closets with retro floral, polka dot, and gingham. Here are a few tips on how to style them.

Retro Floral

Flowers are part of our essential summer wardrobe, but this summer the trend has more of a retro pattern. Wearing the floral print as a wrap dress or from head to toe is the perfect way to stand out from the crowd. This season’s best looks can be found in Balenciaga and Coach collections.

Polka Dot

This classic print is now chicer than ever. Wear it as a ruffle shirt with culottes or as a dress with a nice pair of mules and a braided bag. In S/S 17, polka dot made a comeback in the GANNI, Louis Vuitton, and Dolce & Gabbana collections.


This print can be seen all over Instagram in black, pink, and blue, but Instagrammers are not the only ones into gingham: Prada, House of Holland, and Peter Pilotto showed this trend a lot in their S/S 17 collections.

If these prints seem like too much for you at first, the perfect way to start is with the accessories. Spice up your outfit with a scarf, a pair of heels, or a nice purse.
