A friend is having a 60s themed picnic this Sunday, and wants us to come dressed to theme. :supacool:

I have some ideas, but would welcome any suggestions that would incorporate things that I already might have in my wardrobe, cos Sunday doesn't leave for much time to shop around!

I don't have flared pants, and whilst I have mini skirts, I'm thinking that they won't be too practical at a picnic. I also have boots, but it's been really warm these past weeks, so I don't think I want to go that way either. Dresses maybe? I know I definitely want to hunt down those mod white sunnies. Too cute!

Any suggestions would be much appreciated! :flowers:

Gosh. I didn't know :shame:

She wasn't that specific. I'm not familiar with New Look, but definitely not Early Hippy, cos that's not quite my style.

Thanks so much in advance!

^^^^Yeah.

I'd go with capris, a sleeveless button up shirt tied at the waist, and a scarf tied into your hair (like a pony tail or headband). Definitely wear mod sunnies! Sounds like a lot of fun :smile:

No problem! She probably meant mod; early '60s style plus grass isn't exactly the best combination haha. I say go with a mini-skirt/dress in white or other light colors over some thicker stockings with a headband, and if you can find some cheap ones, gogo boots. But if you still don't feel comfortable with a mini-skirt (understandible), then capris like some others said and with an empire top in white or beige.
Sounds fun! Hope you have a good time!

^ A dress/ mini skirt was definitely my first thought, but as you pointed out, might not be such a good idea :P

Capris sound fabulous though! But does it have to be white? I don't want to look bigger than I am! :shame: I think I'll skip lunch today to see what I can do on a quick spree. I hope I find the white mod sunnies without too much hassle.

Thanks again for everyone's input! :flowers:
