Swinging Sixties Style

Wednesday, September 26, 2012 0


A return to the swinging Sixties is in order this season as we look to style icons like Twiggy, Julie Christie and Mary Quant to inspire our new autumn/winter wardrobe. Think shift dresses, A Line skirts teamed with crop jackets, knee-high boots, oversized jewellery and Mary-Jane heels. Lashings of mascara and beehive hair are optional!




The Sixties trend is bursting with practical, versatile separates. This is great news for your autumn workwear wardrobe, meaning you can mix and match to create some stunning office outfits. To get the look combine the Lisy Jacquard A Line Skirt featuring a geometric print with the more muted Myleene Jumper and Tassle Long Boots. Punctuate the black and white by adding a pop of colour to your neckline with the Jana Bead Necklace to really wow your colleagues.




Shift dresses


The A-line shift dress is the key item you need to achieve the Sixties look. This red A-Line Shift Dress perfectly captures the colourblock trend and is a great winter foundation piece.





Silhouettes are simple and understated and proportions shorter and cropped. Pair the bold block coloured Penelope Dress with one statement piece of jewellery like this Memoir Bracelet to offset the minimalist ensemble. The T-bar Mary Jane Court Shoes transport your look straight back to the Sixties.




If you want to go all out and add a loud Sixties vibe to your wardrobe go for a striking printed tunic. This Tia Jersey Tunic in a vibrant pansy print is a statement piece so pair with more understated Brogue Ankle Boots and the beige Thandie Clutch Bag. Bangles were big news in the Sixties so add this Semi-Precious Bangle to your wrist to perfectly finish your look. As the weather turns chilly add Leggings to the look to stay warm and chic.





Knee-High Boots


The finishing touch to your Sixties look is definitely knee-high boots. Step back in time with our Ruched Long Boots, Buckle Riding Boots or Platform Long Boots for a super Sixties look.
