ANYI'S TIPS: 60's INSPIRED STYLE

The women of the 1960’s exuded a kind of confident femininity that never goes out of style. That’s why we chose this era to be the inspiration for the Spring/Summer 2014 collection. The following are three looks to go with three of the styles from the Spring collection to help inspire you to experiment with 60’s inspired fashion.

 

  1. Cropped pants with flats–Think Audrey Hepburn when trying out this first look. Women in the 60’s were not afraid to combine prints and textures, so we paired a printed cropped pant with a printed flat–the Delphine. The top is a knit pattern, which was also common back then, though this one takes its shape from today’s fashion. Throw on a pair of big sunglasses, grab a bold colored clutch, and you’re ready to go.
  2. Bold print & color–The ladies of the 1960’s knew how to be bold and conservative at the same time. This look takes a conservative structured jacket, but then gets daring with a big print made up of bright colors and earth tones. The cropped pant and low heels (the Gigi) also walk the line of fun and reserved while the necklace adds a modern twist. 
  3. Mini shift dress–We couldn’t do a post on 60’s inspired style without a short shift dress. This style of dress was introduced with the British invasion of 1964 and became wildly popular because it can fit so many body types. Leopard print came into vogue when Jackie O started wearing it at the suggestion of her designer, Oleg Cassini. Pairing it with the Tulipe, a modern mary jane, in metallic pitone completes the look.
