Fashion historians might best remember the 1960s as a decade of daring change, but not all the icons of the time had the daring license of rock and roll's stylish few. For your own piece of that very sixties balance between classic style and originality, this Vivi Rhinestone Dress by Milly is a great choice.
Some styles never date and go on being reinvented season after season – these Platform Peep Toe Shoes from Topshop are one such style.
This latest incarnation comes in classic shiny black leather with a whopping 5.5 inch heel, somewhat mitigated by the platform sole. The peep toe adds to the pin-up vibe and leg lengthening appeal - a perfect accompaniment to the Autumn/Winter season's pencil skirts starting to appear in the shops.
In addition to black, there are metallic silver and champagne colour options, and a pink pair with black polka dots.
The shoes cost £62 from Topshop – check them out on the website.
Shabby chic can be a difficult look to pull off – particularly if you don't have hours to devote to trawling charity shops and car boot sales for the perfect mis-matched home accessories.
Allow Berry Red to come to your rescue with these pressed glass Jewel Coloured Votives in red, pink and purple. Fill them with wild flowers or create a romantic atmosphere by using them to hold tealights.
There are four different designs and the best thing about them is that they cost from just £2.75 to £3.75 each, so you can afford the whole set!

The seventies wedge has much to recommend it – as fashion forward footwear goes it's a remarkably practical shoe and the Zara Wood Wedge is a great example of this season's reworking of a classic style.
Made of a flattering blush pink leather with retro stud and double buckle detailing these sandals will add a sustantial 4.1 inches to your height, making them the perfect complement to this season's wide legged jeans.
The wedges are available in sizes 3-8 (UK) and cost £69.99. You can buy them online from Zara here.
Modern reinterpretations of the classic trench coat often opt for a utilitarian style, choosing traditional and sharp style elements for impact. If you favour a cutesier tone to your retro style, this Plaid Natasha Trench from Fred Flare is the ideal sixties-inspired choice.
The structure of the coat is basic and chic, with an empire line and double breasted buttons. It's the colour palette, however, that speaks of mid-sixties looks, with a yellow plaid and bubblegum pink buttons to finish. The overall look has just enough mod style to create a stylish everyday retro item.

With faux fur coats all the rage once more on the high street, most designs have focused on a mid sixties look or earlier. If you're feeling braver in your vintage look apparel, this Melise Faux Fur Coat from Boohoo Pink taps into a later sixties look to bring something out of the ordinary.
The coat's oversized cut, along with longer fur fibres, creates a more extreme silhouette. Tapping into the decadently trashy aesthetic of Edie Sedgwick and Nico, this coat speaks of a later sixties retro appeal that's less often seen from mainstream brands.
Get it online from Boohoo, as part of their Pink collection, for £70.
