Flashback Friday | 60′s Snow Bunnies
Even though it is only the very, very beginning of fall with the mornings crisp and the occasional leaf finding it’s way to the pavement, and the afternoons are still warm and full of sunshine, it is now when the winter clothes begin to arrive in stores.
The boxes of soft fur earmuffs, gloves from leather to knitted mittens, and puffy jackets in various colours from the classic black to vibrant pinks and purples all start rolling in. And let’s not forge the footwear; rows upon rows of boots from thigh high, to knee high, ankle booties, wellingtons, and snow boots all in preparation for the coming months.
Even though Christmas and winter holidays are a ways off, it is time to think of those snow bunny outfits everyone will be adorning themselves as the snow rolls in and we all hit the slopes. This made me think, when did the whole ‘snow bunny’ idea come into play and were the ensembles similar back then too?
It’s the 1960′s and we are surrounded by chilly fresh air, miraculous views, and clear blues skies. Everyone is in good spirits for the holidays, spending their days skiing down the slopes and evenings curled up in the cabins by the fire.
So here are some images from the 1960′s including vibrant colours, patterns, puffy attire, hoods, fur extras and everything that inspired the winter resort wear of a snow bunny.
