Some memorable Elvis 60s fashions:

  • fun and colourful fashions of Frankie and Johnny – red, blue and white
  • top to toe black leather for his 1968 Comeback Special
  • start of the Las Vegas stagewear in 1969: rhinestones, flares, capes, white jumpsuits

For the ladies of Frankie and Johnny, think dancing girls, masquerade costumes, fortune teller, red, white and blue – there are so many options to dress in theme! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Other women’s fashions of the 1960s include:

  • A-line mini skirts

  • matching top and pant suits
