A nod to the sixties with Dune patent shoes and a Jaeger Boutique dress


We all know that there’s a bit of a 60’s thing going on at the moment and it’s an easy trend to tap into without looking too try hard. Many will already have some block heeled shoes and if not, there are plenty of them around this season. One option is to wear them with some cigarette pants and a fitted jumper, maybe with a Peter Pan collar or, as I’m wearing above – an A-line dress which is slightly above the knee.


Here’s how to re-create the look:


Take one Boden Ottoman shift dress…

add in a Cos rounded collar mock shirt (£29) – which will give any round neck dress, or crew neck jumper, a 60’s feel (don’t tell anyone but I was in Bon Marche today with my Mum and they had some lovely crew necks – 2 for £20 no less! Oh and did anyone else realise that David Emanuel, as in Princess Diana’s wedding dress designer, did a range for them?? Random!)

and the Dune Affina court (which has a little block heel)….and there you go. Job done!

Of course I appreciate that this look may be the last look that anyone wants to recreate but I wanted to copy one of those recipes at the back of the Saturday supplements which show you how to take three ingredients and cook a five course gourmet meal for 25 people in 10 minutes and you think “yeah right, do us a favour” – but seriously, my version is actually achievable!
