Many can say that the 1960s birthed a completely new Hollywood scene- with the release of 'Roman Holiday' starring Audrey Hepburn, and Sharon Tate being hailed as one of Hollywood's promising newcomers. Apart from her captivating performances on screen and the numerous fashion covers she featured on, Tate was also known for being an influential style icon with her alluring choices in fashion. 

Its no surprise that her aesthetic is still serving up fierce looks today in the world of fashion, and with Quentin Tarantino's new film "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" coming to our theatres soon, we're anticipating that this 60s trend is going on a surge pretty soon! 


Mini skirts were one of Sharon Tate's signature wardrobe staples, as we see Margot Robbie donning in the same exact outfit as Tate in an outtake from 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood'. Swap the square-toe shoes that Tate was wearing for a pair of knee-high boots and a shoulder bag to channel your very own Sharon Tate style. Emily Ratajkowski translated this style into her own with a pair of knee-high textured red boots and a printed mini skirt. 


Paying homage to Tate, Margot Robbie donned face-framing braids, reminiscent of Tate's 1968 Cannes Film Festival look. These boho-esque braids help to open up the face, and coupled with the right makeup, can make for a pretty sweet, casual look. Fun fact: Margot Robbie also wore the late Sharon Tate's jewellery onset while filming 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood'. 

Sharon Tate was the ultimate California IT Girl back in the day, with her wardrobe consisting of many dresses; especially mini-dresses. Maxi and midi dresses might be a crowd favourite over the past couple of seasons, but we are definitely expecting to see more labels presenting their take the mini-dresses. Tate's pleated red dress is an absolute icon, and for those looking to channel this, Jacquemus offers a modern-day version in pleated white with a halter neckline.

Hair in the ’60s was bold, sexy and free-spirited and Tate religiously wore hers in a Brigitte Bardot backcombed half-up style. Extra volume and hairspray is the secret, and Versace Pre-fall 2019 runway should serve as your greatest inspiration if you'd like some oomph in your 'do. Actress Shailene Woodley also pulled off a similar hairstyle on the premiere of 'Big Little Lies' earlier this year. 


Small, practical shoulder bags in the 60s' were all the rave and popularized for their practicality and timelessness. Here, we see Tate carrying a structured shoulder bag and they are definitely making a comeback as we spot a similar looking one from Gucci Resort 2020. A classic that has returned to the runway is the Fendi Baguette bag for Spring/Summer 2020 and we're all about this functional bag, that might seem like it has been plucked from your mom's closet, returning to the trend in all the best ways possible.
