If you can break the '70s-style surface that's swirling with wide-leg pants and pirate shirts, you may be pleasantly surprised to find yourself emerge somewhere in the '60s. That's right! The next decade to splash over fall sidewalks is bringing beatnik-style turtlenecks, go-go boots and mod-influenced attire with it – and we can't wait to fully submerse ourselves once the temperature drops!

Not to mention, the swinging '60s gifted us with some seriously amazing tunes from which we can source further fashion inspiration. We're so enamored with this feeling that we went ahead and took our turnstiles for another spin, and in the process, rediscovered the very best '60s style influencers. We pulled our favorite album covers from the flower power decade, then rebuilt their looks with modern pieces you'll want to wear again and again. Check them out below!

1. Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited (1965)

5. The Ronettes - Presenting The Fabulous Ronettes (1964)

Nailing the look The Ronettes are sporting is all about pulling on a polished, preppy look with plenty of whimsical fun to keep the clothes from becoming bland. Ultra-feminine and super cute, this outfit would happily take you to brunch with the fam or even on a dinner date with your S.O. When you're going big with a cat-eye liner, keep the lips soft and subtle in a pastel pink shade.
