Florals, sequins, denim, scarves, and cashmere—with a swinging ’60s twist. This spring designers have set their sights on spectacular graphic prints and exaggerated patterns that emulate fashions straight from a time capsule.

To showcase these incredible finds, we set up shop at one of Denver’s favorite greasy spoon hot spots, 20th Street Café (which has been in operation since 1946) to ensure the perfect backdrop for the most eclectic styles. It’s no secret these stunning looks—a mix of contemporary flair paired with Lennon-esque accents—make everyone’s day that much brighter.
