The 1960s was a time in which women were classy, yet full of flair and colour. Evening gowns of the time were tailored. They often were belted at the waist to show off an hour glass figure. The patterns were intricate, colourful and bold. Sixties evening dresses are short and long and full and swinging or tight. They are great for 2010 because the styles are timeless.
Finding vintage clothing is a great way to shop. The pieces you pick will be one of a kind and are not sold in chain stores. Vintage stores sell clothing that most likely has been previously worn. Clothing can lack buttons or pins, but is rare and often tailored made. Evening dresses from the sixties tend to be very well made because clothing was produced carefully. Many outfits were handmade and not as frequently duplicated as clothing is today.
Check out local areas around you for vintage boutiques. Online vintage boutiques that sell 60s evening dresses are Vintageous, Sydney's Vintage Clothing and Posh Girl Vintage, offering pictures and the era of each outfit. All three websites offer the option to click on a dress category to help narrow your search.
