    60s

    Would it be OK to substitute 60s for 1960s?
    Last edited by Odessa Dawn; 21-Sep-2016 at 22:14. Reason: adding the word 'it'

    Re: 60s

    You can write the sixties. If you use numerals, some editors would prefer the '​60s.

    Re: 60s

    In informal written English in the UK, it's OK without the apostrophe at the start.

    My favourite music is from the 80s.
    I love eighties music.

    I inherited my parents' collection of 60s albums.

    The seventies saw some truly appalling fashion trends.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
