Must-have fashion of Spring 1966

It’s the middle of Fashion Week 2009, where designers show off what they hope will be the hot clothes for Fall 2009. Here’s what city department stores and boutiques were pushing on New York women in ads from the April 9, 1966 issue of The New Yorker.

Bonwit’s describes the frock on the left as a “sliver of silk, available in sapphire blue, lawn green or rose.” For the long-haired, artsy kind of woman, there’s this dress on the right, “graceful as a native sarong.”  villagestoread
