The hit show Mad Men got all of fashion-friendly America watching for the trends of the 60’s, which has given retro 60’s prom dresses more relevance to contemporary vintage fashion than ever. Perhaps you might think that the 60’s prom dress automatically just means hippies or something mini. But in reality, miniskirts didn’t even make American stores at all until 1964.The 60’s actually began as the prim and proper era of sophisticated but feminine Jackie Onassis, with early 60’s prom dresses being mostly in slimmer, but similar, silhouettes to that of the pastel princesses in the decade prior. Early 60’s prom dresses meant bell and hourglass shapes that would eventually edge their way toward the Bridget Bardot babydoll as the decade wore on. Waistlines started rising long before hemlines did, the 60’s prom dress being the real birth of the empire waist. 60’s prom dresses were generally topped with big, bouffant updos. It wasn’t until the “British invasion “ that the beehive would sometimes be traded for short, primped “Twiggy hair” as made fashionable by the world’s first supermodel, Twiggy. By the end of the decade, the look for 60’s prom dress fashions got groovier and more far out, which meant big hair, bolder prints like that of the designer Pucci, empire waists abound, and women getting hip to the idea of showing some skin.
