The 60s Effect

As I was flipping through the pages of the September issue of Vogue 2011, I couldn't help but fall in love with these beautiful pictures of model Lara Stone in these bright and retro feel oversize knits paired with 60s long skirts. The pictures reminded me of the character, Betty Draper from Mad Men played by actress January Jones.

There is no denial that Lara in her "Betty Draper-esque" hair (from Mad Men) with a tiny bit of blush and some serious red lipstick appears to be channeling the sophistication and femininity of 1960s suburban housewives with a modern touch of its own.

To add a little retro feminine style into your modern-day look or draw some '60s inspiration into your personal style , pair your sheath dresses with a classic camel colored trench, add some bright-hued pullovers/crewnecks and even a leopard print cardigan to your structured long skirts/high-waisted pencil skirts. And, remember! No 60s look is complete without some bold red lipstick and cultured pearls.

So, are you ready to take a fashion trip back to the 60s?
Cause I am..
