60’s Florals and Suede Boots

60's cover

My wardrobe is a total mishmash of styles and influences. I’ve got a fair amount of mid-century style; the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s are my favourite decades for sartorial inspiration. This look is much more 60’s themed though, and a perfect summer combo to cheer up London streets. This floral dress first featured on my Insta all the way back in April when I was still wearing tights!

The fabric is slipperly, with almost a scuba-like feel to it. I was worried this might feel a bit artificial, but it actually helps the dress to sit nicely and creates a flowy silhouette. It’s long enough to be able to wear without tights once the temperatures rise, but short enough to maintain that 60’s vibe. The high, wide neckline really balances the dimensions of this dress too.
