I'm sure that most of you would agree that one of the easiest ways for a girl to get that typical look from the mid 1960's is to opt for a monochrome colour palette of black and white when it comes to choosing her clothing and accessories. And, with op art having been quite popular at the time, what better way is there than to incorporate geometry into the look? This can be very nicely done with thick, bold stripes. One woman who I think encapsulated this look marvelously well was Francoise Hardy.
I felt a little bit inspired by Francoise Hardy in stripes whilst going out the other morning. Usually I pair this dress with white tights and white plastic hoop earrings, but instead I cut down on the accessories in the hope that I'd look more reminiscent of Francoise's simple yet stunning look in these posted pictures.
Below are just a few images of some more sweet sixties ladies also looking marvelous in black and white stripes.
