Let me apologize for the quality of my photo above. It was taken by my husband who was watching a Golden State Warriors basketball game at that time so he wasn’t paying much attention to me. Men!

I just love the pattern on this 1960s style dress!

I think the rectangles pattern on this dress is unique and is something I don’t usually see around so I like that it has a style of its own.  Though the length of this dress is pretty okay, I still had to wear tights under it because I was leading worship that day and I don’t like wearing an above-the-knee skirt when I’m onstage.

I also like the material used for this dress. It was comfortable and I feel that it had the right thickness so I wouldn’t sweat that much under all the lights on the stage, but it wouldn’t be too cold either once I stepped off the stage.

Overall, I can say that this dress is great in that it gives you a vintage 1960s look, it’s unique, and it’s comfortable.

BUY IT! This Rectangles Time 1960s inspired dress retails for $172 but is currently on sale for $90 at apricot-collection.com.

Apricot Collection’s Rectangles Time 1960s Dress Review — 67 Comments

  1. I love that some of the styles from the 50s and 60s are making a comeback! This dress is super cute and I love it better with the leggings actually! I could do that with a pair of flats! 🙂

  2. The dress looks lovely on you. I have checked out some of there other dresses too. They sure do have a lot to love. I love that you paired this with the leggingss.

  3. I like it – in fact i thought your picture (besides being a little fuzzy) looked better than the other one! It looks better on you, too, maybe you should model for them! I will check it out, thanks!

  4. I also have seen this dress worn in Kentucky! I love the retro design, but it would only work for someone who is not heavy set.

  5. I totally love that dress that you are wearing! When I went to their site and I saw that dress I fell in love with it. That is my fave dress. You look stunning in it also.

  6. this is a really cute dress and i like the way it looks with the leggings. i never would have thought of that myself.

  7. Awww!!! Your husband took a great photo even though he wasn’t really paying attention to you! The dress is super cute & I LOVE it with the leggings! I would probably wear it with leggings for work.

  8. I had a dress in the 1960s that reminds me of this dress though mine had some red, blue and yellow colors in some of the squares. I won it at a fashion show when I was 8 when my chair had the envelope under it. First thing I ever won!

  9. I saw the pic on the left pinned a couple days ago. Pretty cool…you have a dress that’s floating around popular on the internet. 🙂

  10. Looks more flattering on you than on the model…love that you paired it with leggings, I think it would go totally cute with flats and a nice clutch!

  11. Thank you for sharing this! I like how you paired it with leggings, though I’m not sure this type of dress would look too good on me (I’m more of a plus, and I just worry the print would accentuate largeness).

  12. I really like the retro geometric print of this shift dress! Very cute! And it looks great on you!
    I’ll be sure to check out Apricot Collection!

  13. I love this with your leggings…it makes for a more casual look and if the weather is a little chilly they would add warmth.

  14. The dress itself is cute with or without leggings. It would look so much better with gogo boots but the more I see this picture the more I can’t help but think that it’s not a particularly flattering dress on either model. I don’t know it’s…. baggyish and sloppy looking as is I think they needed a smaller size

  15. That is just so so cute! I like it a lot and I just know my mother would adore it. She was a teen in the 60’s and from looking at her old pictures, this would be her style! 🙂
