Jackie Kennedy’s francophile sense of style is legendary and still being copied today! I’m not ashamed to say that I’m one of those copy cats: Monotone block colours, boxy jackets, straight shift dresses and relaxed riviera style on holiday epitomised the Jackie style and most of these items are represented in my wardrobe.
The other day, I perused TK Maxx and saw this gorgoues sixties dress which screamed “Mad Men” and Jackie. A beautifully tailored shift dress, weaved in a gorgeous emerald green and mustard yellow boucle tweed, all colours that are very much part of the new breath taking Autumn / winter 2016 collection as seen at Prada and Miu Miu.
I’m so happy to see that the 60s fashion trend, initiated with the Mad Men series, shows no sign of abating. Seldom has fashion looked so flattering. The tailoring, the colours, the cuts, the details: Let this trend never stop!

Shift dresses in A-Line are really trendy this summer and most flattering for all body types. Team them with bright colours for a happy summery feeling! I love the The Antoni and Alison dress I am wearing in primary colours. I paired it with red sunglasses from Versace and a straw bag from Misako. I simple cute bag that won’t steal the show of the colourful dress. In case you’re wondering, the turquoise nail varnish on my feet is “Nouvelle Vague” from Chanel.

Horizontal stripes can make you look bigger so team them with heels to lengthen your silhouette. My excuse for not wearing heels is that I’m on holiday. Nude, pointy flats are great to make your legs look longer. Shoes from BCBG.
Tousled hair and a warm breeze – wish I could be on holiday for the whole of the summer!
