A quintessentially British trend , the Sixties look is huge this autumn and winter season. Team backcombed hair and doe-eyed make up looks with Peter Pan collars and chic loafers. Here’s my pick of the best Sixties inspired items on the High Street this season.
1. The Mini Skirt
An essential item this winter! It might not initially seem very practical, but when teamed with thick knitted tights, a cosy jumper and an oversized boyrfriend coat you won’t feel the cold! Look out for retro inspired paisley prints or traditional tartans like this New Look number, priced at £14.99.
2. The Roll Neck Jumper
Wear yours under dresses and jumpers for a chic way to stay cosy! Fluffy knitted roll neck jumpers and jersey tops are can be found almost everywhere on the High Street this season. A plain roll neck top, such as this Asos version, is the perfect partner to a printed pinafore.
3. The Shoes
The chunkier the better! The loafer is a great shoe for running around campus all day. Team yours with rolled up jeans or ankle-grazing cigarette trousers.
4. The Peter Pan Collar
Layer colourful jumpers over cute, quirky Peter Pan collar blouses. A white collar peeping over a black jumper instantly adds a 60s vibe. I love this blouse from Jack Wills (who offer a generous 15% student discount!)
5. The Makeup
A liquid eyeliner is all you need for Sixties inspired eyes. Take your inspiration from the iconic makeup looks of Twiggy (although you may need to tone it down for your nine oclock lecture!) and, more recently, Lana Del Rey.
