Sixties Scene

GO back in time this autumn/winter 2011-12. Leave fashion's summer obsession with the Seventies and look to Sixties style icons Mary Quant, Twiggy and Julie Christie to inspire your new season look.
"Two-piece ensembles in fabrics that really hold structure, like felt and wool, bridge the gap between ladylike and mod perfectly," says Vogue's Calgary Avansino. Look for coats with sloping shoulders and bracelet sleeves and wear with polonecks, miniskirts, knee-high boots or a pair of Bottega Veneta's dainty heels.
On a beauty note, beehives were tall and proud at Jean Paul Gaultier and Bottega while, elsewhere, a side-parting that swept across the forehead kept things neat. Try a headband for some Brady Bunch preppy appeal and made-up eyes that flick at the sides will add some va-va-voom to the look.
