Watch out for sleeveless A line dresses with high rounded necks with the hemline coming above the knee. You could also look for separates, shorts and loose tops with ¾ length sleeves worn with sixties patent leather shoes and a shortish heel. A sixties dress coat will really seal the look forVintage 60s dressing, they’re usually well shaped with double breasted buttons or straight down on one side. Collars are small or medium sized peter pan colours,occasionally in primary colours.
Her wedding suit is a perfect example of Vintage 60s dressing with a 1960s cut, with Farrow opting for a two pieces ensemble with fitted suit, ¾ length sleeves, collarless jacket and a double set of buttons down the front. Beautiful, simple, yet at the same time, striking.
Whether or not you decide to go with the short hair is entirely up to you. It doesn’t suit everyone and is quite a blunt cut. If you do have it cut this short, it will take a long time to grow out, it’s a no-way-back cut. It’s the same for the current pixie cut trending at the moment with shaved back and sides and lots of length on top.
All short cuts are permanent and you won’t be tying up it up in a ponytail anytime soon, keep that in mind if you do decide to go ahead. You need good bone structure for this kind of cut, with high cheekbones for it to really work.The makeup is simple, with striking peek-a-boo eyes, lots of mascara and winged eyeliner. Lips are pale coral pink or left nude. Skin is translucent with barely there foundation.Enjoy putting this look together, as any style whether it’s Vintage 60s dressing or current, should always be fun.
