Back to the 60’s!

Every place and time has it’s own dress code, and I like deifying the rules of those dress codes by trying to mix and match these different elements. In one of my previous posts I gave a guide of how to find your Italian style, and this time we are going back to the 60’s!

I was inspired by this look from a vintage dress that my aunt gave me a long time ago. The way I gain inspiration is not just from magazines, fashion shows and other bloggers, but also from movies, places and even different times. I already have in mind a look fully inspired by Claire Underwood, coming soon! 

Dress:

It has a very classical silhouette, with a strong color that doesn’t require any other strong elements in the look.

Bag:

This specific bag is from the Italian brand Carpisa.

Similar bags on John Lewis and Boohoo.

With this look I can see myself going to a swing party in Berlin.

I added delicate white vintage shoes to complement the very dominant dress.
