The Inspiration: Marc Jacobs SS13 / Jean Shrimpton / Twiggy / Mad Men & January Jones
Is anyone else as obsessesd with the 60's as I am at the moment? I think it stemmed from my watching episodes of Mad Men back to back over the last few months. I never got into the series when it first came out but I've been gradually making my way through the box sets and I've finally caught up! I can't believe how good it still is even into the 6th series! The incredible costume and set design make me very happy! I love watching the fashion throughout the show and how it gradually changed through the series. I'm particularly loving Megan Draper's mod style. Also how cool was January Jones rocking her retro hair at Paris Fashion Week?
Luckily for me the 60's is also a big trend for spring/summer 13 and was used by several different designers during the spring/summer fashion weeks. It's a super simple look to do - it just involves a drawn in socket line, lots of lashes and a pastel pink or peach lip. Keep the shape very rounded and eyeliner was pulled outwards or even slightly downwards in the case of Twiggy. You can make it more wearable by using a softer shade along the socket line and ditching the bottom lashes! It would still look 60's inspired especially if you pair it with big hair and a shift dress! (perhaps not the white patent leather boots though).
