10 Etsy shops to score great ‘60s vintage

From Swinging Sixties to a Touch of Psychedelia ‘70s these shops have you covered.

 

The 1960s was a pivotal era for the fashion world. When we think of it, a very clear image of what people wore pops into our heads. Skirts were shorter, colors were brighter, and tie-dye and go-go boots were everywhere.

 We’re back with more ways to build your vintage collection, and this time we’re diving into the ‘60s, with a touch of the early ‘70s! If the styles of Twiggy, Brigitte Bardot, or Audrey Hepburn have always stood out to you, these vintage shops on Etsy will help you create the ‘60s looks you’ve always admired.
