Be Ahead Of The Crowd With The 1960s Look with Kirsty Drury

The Sixties is the trend to channel if you want to be two steps ahead of the crowd.

Now the look that screams “I am so super cool” is the one that very few girls are doing yet and it’s the one that is easiest for the young (but don’t let that put you thirty and forty something’s off). It’s the Sixties and no we don’t mean that Mad Men Jacqueline Kennedy early Sixties look. It’s the full on Beatles, Mary Quant, Carnaby Street look we’re after and the celebrity designers at Very have this look NAILED.

It’s all about the mini dress and you can’t go wrong with these cuties by Diana Vickers. We love this Diana Vickers Vintage Scarf Detail Shift Dress with a Trompe L’Oeil (means deceiving the eye) scarf detail. It’s best worn by straight up and down figures and hourglass girls with good legs. A pair of matt opaque black tights will see this dress through winter. This Diana Vickers Knitted Mini Dress also has some lovely Sixties details, as does Diana’s Sequin 60s Tunic Dress. They are all TOO cute.

Fearne Cotton’s retro Checked Tartan Cape Coat can be worn by all shapes so long as you keep the legs sleek and clean in tights or skinny jeans and leggings. No baggy trousers allowed!  Fearne’s Cotton Cut-work Cape Shift Dress is great for those who don’t like their arms.
