How to rock the swinging sixties trend

There’s always a lot of love for the “Swinging Sixties”, and one look at the fabulous fashion of the era is enough to explain why. Now, having dominated the catwalks at fashion week, the funky and feminine style of sixties is back!

Here are our top five tips for rocking the sixties trend this season.


Shift dress

The AW14 runways were jam-packed with the staple sixties shift dress, and it gives a playful and feminine nod to the trend. Take your look to the next level by backcombing your hair and painting on a kitten eye flick – very Bridget Bardot!


Knee-high boots

Sexy and sophisticated, your knee-highs will channel the classic sixties ‘go-go’ look to perfection. Opt for a platform or a comfy flat heel, layering some stockings underneath to add a funky edge to your look.


Box bags

This signature sixties arm-candy is having a major moment, and it’s just as well, because we’re sick of dragging those satchels and oversized totes around! Even if you do have to stuff everything into it, it’s worth it for that pretty retro look.


Shearling coat

Nothing says sixties like some funky shearling. From subtly-lined jackets to all-over-fluffy coats, pick a bright shade to really make a statement this season. While blush pink and cool mint hues are popping up all over the high street, nothing beats classic beige or tan.


Polos and Peter Pans

We’re talking collars, of course, with the high polo neck and sweet Peter Pan two trademarks of sixties fashion. Whether it’s a dress, a blouse or a coat you’re rocking, these minor details channel the sixties vibe perfectly.
