How to Wear: FW14's 60's Redux Trend Now

July 15, 2014

Yesterday, we introduced you to four top Fall/Winter 2014 trends that you can wear now in the summer.  Today, we've chosen our favourite of those four trends, the 1960's Redux trend, and are showing you how to create the perfect on-trend look for you using items that are currently available in the summer sales.  Sounds pretty great, doesn't it?  We think so!  The 1960's trend is all about that 60's A-line mini silhouette, paired with a high neckline and, of course, boots.  We've interpreted the trend four ways so that you can wear it casually, in the evening or evening for work.  We love the way a little collared minidress looks with mid-heel Chelsea boots and a cross-body bag for day, or the way an embellished mini shift dress looks paired with stiletto Go-Go inspired boots and a paillette-embellished clutch for evening--two easy-to-wear ways to try the 1960's redux trend.  So whether you're a working woman or a night owl, Stylecab has got a super on-trend new 1960's look for you!


Wear a collared minidress with flat or mid-heel Chelsea boots for an instant casual-cool 1960's inspired look.  Add a vintage style cross-body bag and your look is complete.

If you favour a more interesting, quirky style, try wearing a collared shirt or detachable collar (there are so many of these available on the market now) underneath a mini dress to give it more of a 1960's look.  Don't forget to finish your outfit off with an ankle bootie.

A great 1960's style look for evening is an embellished shift dress paired with some 'Go Go' style boots; this cream pair from Givenchy below is absolute perfection for the trend.  Add a clutch adorned with paillettes and you've got a stellar look for evening.

Keep things work-appropriate by pairing a 60's style A-line skirt with a white collared shirt.  Top your look off with closed-toe mid-heel boots and a tote bag in a 60's mode tone such as mustard yellow and you'll be staying both on-trend and workplace-ready.
