Say bonjour to fuller figures and longer hemlines as the skirt and dress silhouettes of the late ’50s / early ’60s swing their way back onto the scene as a 2010 /2011 fashion trend.
When we talk about the ’60s dress or skirt in this context, we’re not talking about the later, mod ’60s movement of miniskirts and teeny shift dresses. We’re talking about early ’60s ladylike dressing that flowed on from the late 1950s.
For my shirt i was looking for something bright and fresh wich brought me to Chantkare. They have such lovely and colorfull designs this summer and i felt in love with the jacket i am wearing today wich is the Ming Vintage jacket in red. The Tassels that comes with the jacket are optional but give a very nice detail to the jacket.
The overflow of ’50s prom style dresses into ’60s day wear. Full, below-the-knee circle skirts, cinched in waists, and prim, proper styling. Something wich we will see back is the granny skirt.
Don’t panic about the name of this one; this look actually was commonly known as the granny skirt back in the ’60s haha. The key to pulling off this look today is to either make it completely effortless, or surprisingly sexy
The skirt i am wearing today is the Daisy – black system skirt from Kunglers. Did you see the black waist band, for the cute effect. So adorable dont you think.
For a sensual,early ’60s look i choose the Tiffany hair from Vanity Hair. But ofcourse you can also fit it more into 2010/2011 and then just choose hair trends like a messy topknot.
To make my style a little more 60′s and more complete i am wearing the gladys glasses in red from Artilleri. The earrings i am wearing are a part of the Curie ruby set from R.A.Crystal. The bracelets are the Pearl Rain Bracelets in Onyx color from Mandala. My nails are from CCD (Caithlin Carter) and are the girl next door long nails in red.
My shoes are the Damasamba Pumps from Baiastice. They are so well made and i really couldnt resit to buy them. Check out those textures and in combi with the straps they are so unique. The pumps come in 10 colors.
I think they are a must have in every female inventory.
Ofcourse also today i didnt go out without a bag. The bag of today is from Miel. This glitter bag comes with and witout animations and you can change the color of the bag.
Have fun with shopping ;)
