Below a photo that shows some ties/cravattes from the late 60s. Dark colors, bright, or with designs such as paisley are just a brief example of the variety there was in these pieces.

In February 1968, French model and Yves Saint Laurent muse, Betty Catroux (Betty Saint) married French decorator, Francois Catroux. The wedding took place in Cap Ferrat. It can be considered as an "original wedding" since the bride skipped the traditional white dress and opted for a black and white Pierre Cardin fur coat paired with patent leather boots. The groom also broke the tradition by wearing a chocolate velvet suit with a white turtleneck.
Definetly a late 60s Mod wedding.

To pay tribute to his life and legacy I've decided to post a photo that depicts one of the most memorable scenes from "Dirty Dancing". Swayze played the part of a resort's dance instructor who falls in love with a debutant, Jennifer Grey. The ending's dance sequence is considered by some as one of the most memorable scenes in movie history. Patrick Swayze's character just proves once more than you can never go wrong with the all black look.

His trademark, shoulder length hair, along with his gold chain, t-shirts, 70s style shorts, and smile made Bjorn Borg one of the most stylish sportsmen in the 70s.

There are many "famous" James Dean photographs, the publicity stills from "Rebel Without A Cause", those of him wandering thru the streets of New York, candid photos, yet the photos from that night are in my opinion some of the best photographs taken of him.
I don't know the exact ocassion, yet if anyone knows I'd be grateful .

For many Chuck Bass is the "2007-2009 #1 TV Dandy", whether some may argue on this, it can't be denied that he brought back the Dandy look at least for late teen TV audiences. The Chuck Bass style is all about tailored suits, bow ties, suspenders, trench coats in a variety of colors, impecable grooming, sharp shoes, and the "Chuck Bass" attitude. Below an image of Ed as Chuck Bass channelling James Bond in the upcoming season of the show.
Off set, Ed's style is a bit more relaxed, simple, casual, and modern; without looking stylish. He's someone who opts for jeans, printed t-shirts, accesories such as rings, pendants, and medallions; V-neck cardigans, just to mention some items.
To wrap up this post, a photo of Ed Westwick with one of the most stylish men in history & favorite of this blog, Michael Caine.

Till this day, his selectiveness outside the doors of 54 is remembered. Steve wanted to host the perfect party and therefore not everybody got inside the club. He was friends with the celebrities and jet setters of the late 70s (he was introduced to some of them by 54's PR woman, Carmen D'Alessio).
When working and partying at Studio 54, Rubell usually wore a tuxedo or suit (if it was a special party), floral shirts, polos, jeans, sneakers, sweaters, or just a simple white shirt. Below a photo of him sitting on one of the "banquets" at 54 wearing what appears to be a white suit with a polo underneath, and a pair of sneakers.

They were trendsetters and experimented with the styles of the decade. From their classic and sleek Mod fashions in 1962 to the pyschedelic, high fashion, Carnaby street clothing from the late 60s.
It would be fair to say that The Beatles didn't really "create" any of this trends, they borrowed them from the subcultures of the era, yet they helped make them global and therefore defined fashion in the 60s.
Below the Fab Four around 1968-1969 posing in a field of flowers wearing different styled outfits. Ringo is wearing a colored outfit that is an example of the Carnaby Street style, Paul a sleek purple suit with a white shirt, while John and George opted for something minimalistic and understated.
