Bold retro prints are most often used for clothing best suited to nights on the town, but with the right design and colour choices even the busiest vintage-look prints can be suitable for any occasion. This Paisley Pencil Skirt from Warehouse uses a sixties print to great effect for daywear and beyond thanks to a warm Wintery palette.
With the trend for nude shades across the catwalks in Summer 2010, the use of these neutral shades is still easy to find on the high street. That's ideal for those looking for a 60s retro aesthetic, with camel shades providing an equally mod alternative to monochrome colour schemes.
This Flannel Button A-Line Skirt from Topshop takes advantage of mid-sixties inpiration well, using a simple a-line shape and high waisted cut. The tab and button details provide some military influence, while the neutral shade of both allows for the subtle femininity to stay intact.

Finding mod clothing that's unique and head turning is becoming thankfully easier, thanks to the influence of sixties gear on the high street along with dedicated retro retailers. It's often those simple, perennial pieces that are the hardest to come by though, making this A-Line Twill Mini Skirt from Stella McCartney all the more appealing.
The skirt's best asset is the simplicity, with a well angled A-line, high waist cut and truly 60s-mini hem length. Made from a black twill, the fabric holds the shape to provide a sharp mid-sixties style that's undeniably retro.
