60s Inspired OOTD

June 5, 2016

Hello everyone! Today I'm here with a fashion post which I haven't done in SUCH a long time and I really miss it. Apart from personal posts, fashion and outfit posts are probably my favourite to write about but it's so hard to do them unless you have someone to take pictures for you (thank you dearbhla!!!) Today I decided to create a 60s inspired look, with this gorgeous dress being the key piece. 

This dress is from Topshop, I got it last summer I believe but I've never got a chance to wear it until now. It is so clearly 60s inspired from the high neck to the A-line shape of the dress. I love the combination of olive green and yellow, it's so summery. I wouldn't usually wear a colour like this so I think it's a nice way to bring it into my wardrobe. 

I paired this dress with a simple pair of slightly platformed trainers with white frilly socks. Women of the 60s were greatly into wearing little to no heels and dresses and young girls often wore perfectly white trainers with stockings. These shoes are from NewLook.

As for hair and make up, I tied my hair in a half up/half down style and made it as high as I possibly could (which gave me a headache) but it was so worth it. The 60s was all about high hair. 

For makeup, I went for a dark crease with messy eyebrows and strong contour. I went for a very pale lip which is what many women wore in the 60s. 

Finally I have these absolutely beautiful sunglasses from Asos, I believe. They literally scream 60s with their bright colour and winged frames. I love the colour and that they are made of plastic. I think they are so unique and different. They really tied the entire outfit together. 

I hope you liked this outfit and if you would like me to do anymore 'inspired' outfits let me know! Have a lovely day! x
