Spring/Summer 2013: Sixties reloaded

The designs of the 60s completely re-invented the fashion industry and there is no denying that the sixties still have a very strong influence on today’s fashion scene. For that reason,  my wardrobe is extremely well stocked with pieces from the sixties and I just can’t have enough of them.  Quite apart from the fact that, the 60s look still suits me, even if I am well into my 50s!

My perennial favourite in spring: Half-length trench coat from Burberry, with mid heel knee-high riding boots or tight-fitting 60s boots. Indispensable: The dramatic, big black sunglasses (please note that they don’t always have to be black).

Just like Brigitte Bardot:

Important: Heel height should never exceed six inches, otherwise we are moving onto the high heeled style of the seventies. To give it a 2013 look, the beloved trench coat can be combined with ankle boots. Important: Again heel height should never exceed six inches, otherwise, as previously stated, we are encroaching upon the seventies style.

Fay interprets the 60s style very well. Unfortunately, for women over 40, the skirt length is consistently a touch too short. We can always hope, that the skirt length in-store, at least for petite ladies, finishes just above the knee.

    Andrea is right, you can’t beat a Burberry mac!
