Sixties Sunday – winter layers

Here’s a new little feature that I’m planning to keep up regularly once the new-look blog launches (behind the scenes work is furiously going on, honest).

Every Sunday I’ll try to post my latest sixties look. The aim of the game is to inspire you and show you that you can rock a sixties look at any age, for all occasions and across the seasons.

The first look I’ve popped together is an interesting one because it doesn’t contain a single piece from the actual 1960s.

You could say, however, that the complete look is “vintage” because it’s all past season – but everything I’m wearing was new when I bought it.

The dress is from Miss Selfridge (circa 1999), the polo neck is an Orla Kiely print number from Uniqlo, a couple of seasons ago, and the cardigan is about nine years old, originally from Primark (from the days before I popped that particular store on my banned list).

I love a clash of 60s style prints – and the little Buddha necklace (by Sam Ubhi) is a nice touch


The thigh high boots were a bargain buy from just before Christmas (£24.99 from H&M) – and an absolute fix-all when it comes to wearing 60s mini dresses.

I love this layered sixties-inspired look for the winter; come spring I’ll be losing the extras and wearing the dress with mustard tights and Mary Jane shoes.

All this goes to prove, I guess, that if you invest in a few vintage-inspired pieces from the high street, you could still be wearing them in a decade. High street fashion isn’t fast if you choose wisely and stick to styles and prints that are influenced by your fave decade.

So there you have it. My first Sixties Sunday. I’m looking forward to the next one already!
