1960s Fashion Icons

1960s Fashion Icons


The 1960s were a time of huge social change, in fact it was in this decade that the 'teenager' was born.  It's hardly surprising, then, that fashion was also revolutionised in this era.  Mary Quant created the mini skirt and immediately gained popularity, being worn by models such as Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton (who was famously photographed by David Bailey, the pair changing the face of fashion photography with their NY shoot for Vogue).  Another fasion icon of this decade was American first lady Jacqueline Kennedy whose signature Chanel skirt suits with pill box hats and cat's eye sunglasses are still described as 'very Jackie O'!
 
 
The huge changes of the 1960s mean that the fashion icons of this decade were truly revolutionary and redefined fashion in a way that still resonates today. 
 
What do you think?  Who are your 1960s icons?

1950s Fashion Icons

1950s Fashion Icons

Fashion in the 1950s oozed classic, ladylike style, from Audrey Hepburn's graceful elegance to Marilyn Monroe's glamorous sex-appeal.  Clothes were designed to enhance and showcase curves and the full skirted evening dress was featured on the Dior catwalk.  Another fashion icon, Princess Margaret, was a fan of this opulent style of gown.  A list of 1950s fashion icons would not be complete without considering Elizabeth Taylor and her legendary collection of diamonds.  
 
These women were truly fashion icons, defining and redefining the style of a decade.  Their influence endures and are still regarded as icons of the fashion world.   
 
Do you agree with my selections?  Who would you include?

Forest Forever

Forest Forever
Everyone who knows me in real life will know what this post is going to be about- especially if you've been shopping with me recently, you won't have failed to notice my love of forest green! 

It's such a gorgeous, Wintery colour and flatters so many skin tones.  Luckily for lovers of the colour like me, the high street seems to agree!  Every shop has some sort of homage to the colour, so why not hit the shops asap, now that the sales are on, you may as well treat yourself!

Love her Look- Cara Delevingne

Love her Look- Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne wasn't named 2012's model of the year for nothing!  It's not only her stunning turns on some of the biggest catwalks in fashion, but her style is a masterclass in 'off-duty model chic'. 

She seamlessly layers versatile pared down wardrobe staples, such as perfectly fitting skinny jeans and a classic investment leather biker.  The use of accessories like this eye-catching scarf add something extra to the look, taking it beyond simply a casual dressed down look and pulls together her grungy, effortlessly cool style.
