Top: New Look | Skirt: New Look | Shoes: New Look

I love 1960s fashion. I always have done actually; I remember doing a whole project on the fashion for my A Level Textiles project all those years ago and loved every minute of it. I designed and made a shift dress, which at the time felt like an incredible achievement and it was there, I decided that fashion design was the way to go. After making that shift dress I never thought a few years later I’d be designing and making a 6 piece collection and graduating with a 2:1 in fashion design and production.

It’s a trend which has always given a little nod to fashion throughout the years but it’s making a big comeback this year. Although the 70s are everywhere, the 60s are subtly there too. You can stock up on your pastel trouser suits, shift dresses, miniskirts and knee high boots straight from the high street and rock it like you grew up the 60s.

Personally, I always tend to gravitate to pieces which are very 60s inspired and this outfit is right up there. I think the styles and shapes flatter my figure and it’s a trend I always feel comfortable wearing. It’s such a versatile way of dressing too and I think everyone can get involved with it in some way.

New Look kindly invited me to take part in their bloggers timeline where I got to style up a decade with their current in store items. I jumped at the chance to feature 60s and put my own little spin on it and I’m really happy with my picks. I feel like I’ve put a modern touch to a classic fashion decade which broke the rules of fashion.  Pillbox hats off to you Mary Quant and Jackie Kennedy, the fashion world would be a lot different today if it wasn't for you both! 

Here's the New Look fashion timeline.

  7. Love this outfit, you look so nice. Also love your choice of location, I use to love visiting the vintage warehouse when I was younger. You could grab such a good bargain, it was where I first fell for vintage shopping. So sad they closed down xx
