Just because winter is now in full swing and we're all freezing our bits off, there's no reason to banish brights in favour of greys and browns.
As the sunshine does its best to lift our collective mood, it's the perfect time to reinject some daring colour into our wardrobes. When it's done right, colourblocking can produce an instantly retro mood in womenswear, as seen in this Striped Shirt Dress by Karen Millen.
While the dress has a fuller skirt than many mod-inspired looks, it still has an evident sixties look thanks to its sharp and unfussy design. The shirt collar and sleeveless cut of the bodice create a great silhouette, with horizontal coloured stripes adding a structured sixties feeling.
It's available online from ASOS for £190.
The title pretty much sums up what this is – a Sixties Shift dress by Karen Millen.
Very much inspired by 'swinging London' not least with the black and white finish, this is a colourblock shift dress with bib front detail and a length that sits just above the knee, the whole thing finished off with branded Karen Millen metalwork and a contrast buttoned waist.
Not the cheapest dress on the high street though, with a price tag of £175.
