Swinging sixties

Words: Marishka Denicker | Pictures: Fairchild Archive

Think Edie Sedgwick, Twiggy, mini skirts and go-go boots; the ’60s look is all about fresh, young style. Smock coats, vivid tights, A-line dresses, primary colours, bold prints and houndstooth are great ways to tap into the trend – but to avoid looking like you’re on way to a costume party, don’t try all them all at once. Loving the idea of go-go boots? Steer clear of white and try them in black. A little daunted? Knee-high socks with flats are an easy way to achieve the look. Alberta Ferretti, Prada, Blumarine, Rochas and Marni’s ’60s styles are on our wish list. Be inspired and go-go!
