What did Apollo-era fashion look like?
That iconic retro NASA look is very simple to recreate. It consists of a white button up shirt, a slim tie and usually dark slacks. Don’t forget your pocket protector and black-frame glasses.
Some of the most memorable 60s fashion trends included oversized collars and bows and bold geometric patterns that were often combined with bright or pastel colors.
Chunky knit sweaters and turtle necks were favorites of the late 60s and early 70s as well. Shapeless shift dresses and colorful stockings also made their way into mainstream fashion in the 60s.
