Channelling Cilla Black fashion: 60s knit in olive green
If I will go catching up on shows set in the sixties about Liverpudlian fashion icons like Cilla Black, it will cost me money…
In the fabulously styled Cilla, the red-headed Sheridan Smith is sporting all manner of colour block roll necks and bright 60s dresses. All of it is exactly to my taste.
Inspired by the knits – and the changing of the seasons – I grabbed this queen olive green cashmere jumper. The earthy colour is just perfect for the time of year; great for redheads, but also lovely against the autumnal backdrop we’ve all got to play with for the next few weeks.
|The green knit was £55 from Peekaboo|
I matched the new/old sweater with a brilliant Paris print vintage dress (with humongous collars) I’ve had knocking around the wardrobe for a few months, navy tights and pistachio brogues.
This is certainly a good season in which to wheel out some retro-toned colour a la Cilla – and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
