They say fashion is cyclical, and Olivia Wilde's pink dress and lavender boots are all the proof you need that 1960s style is officially resurfacing. While out and about in New York City on Tues., the actor debuted a look plucked straight from the Kate Spade Spring 2019 runway. Prepare to infuse your wardrobe with '60s-inspired pieces — Wilde's look is that good.
After a trip to France for Paris Fashion Week, Wilde returned to New York and hopped right back into work with a photoshoot for Dunkin' Donuts on Tues. The Tron: Legacy actor has partnered with the confectionary company to launch The Home That Runs on Dunkin', a tiny house that runs on coffee grounds that Wilde herself helped design.
Wilde spent the day in a candy-pink dress and purple boots that gave off serious '60s vibes. The long-sleeve midi dress is fuchsia-colored and covered in floral print from head to toe. It features a ruffled turtleneck and sleeves and is belted at the waist for a bit of structure. Wilde mocked the runway look by pairing it with Kate Spade's knee-high soft-lilac boots. The actor wore her hair back in a low bun and accessorized with only a long gold-pendant necklace.
Wilde channeled her inner Twiggy in this so-very '60s dress-and-gogo-boots combo. Unfortunately, you'll have to wait until spring to snag the outfit yourself. Other looks in Kate Spade's spring collection feature even more bold prints, bright and cheery colors (hello, lemon-yellow boots), and retro neck scarves.
It's no secret that retro fashion has made its way back into modern trends. Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are prime examples of '90s throwback style, always sporting chunky sneakers, crop tops in every color, and high-waisted jeans. Meanwhile, Chrissy Teigen, Blake Lively, and Minka Kelly have all recently worn Cher-inspired bellbottoms from the '70s.
Today's trends are a total hodgepodge of throwback looks, but '60s style hasn't really infiltrated modern fashion until now. Back in the days of Brigitte Bardot and Jackie O, women wore swing dresses in pastels, bright hues, and fun patterns with block-heeled statement boots. Clearly, Wilde's latest look ticks all the boxes.
If the actor's '60s ensemble has you feeling ready to resurrect the trend, bring the bygone look into your own wardrobe by pairing bright-colored dresses with knee-high boots. Bold patterns and soft pastels are a good bet, too. To make your look autumn-appropriate, gravitate towards an ankle-grazing dress like Wilde's and bring along your favorite leather jacket for an extra layer.
