Since Texas weather just can’t make up its mind right now, we’re talking about a style that couldn’t have more perfect transitional pieces- the 60’s revival. We mentioned in our Fall 2014 Must-Haves guide that bold geometric patterns and short hemlines were a big part of this trend, which is also why these pieces are perfect during this Dallas weather indecision!

Shop the 60’s Style tips:
1. A-Line Dresses/Skirts/Coats: Each of the pieces can have the A-line shape and absolutely scream 60’s style. What to look for: fitted at the hips and flares slightly through the length of the skirt or dress. Forms an A shape silhouette. Also, some dresses and coats are fitted at the shoulders and flare out created a full body “A” shape.
2. Pointed/Kitten Heels: The fantastic thing about these heels is the versatility beyond seasons on into environments. Perfect for work, night out or Saturday morning coffee. What to look for: The original kitten heel is a heel of 1-2 inches and is essentially a shorter stiletto. We do love the modern spin on these classic heels like the chunky kitten heels on Alexa Chung pictured above. Also, pointed toes are also a classic look from the 60’s. This is a pretty self explanatory one but we recommend test driving these in a ballet flat to get used to walking with pointed toes before diving head first into pointed toe stilettos.
3. Bold Geometric Prints: The great thing about modern style is we mix styles and eras to make our wardrobes unique, comfortable and fashionable. Bold patterns are always a statement no matter if you’re making a full 60’s style revival to your wardrobe or trying to escape always sticking with neutrals. What to look for: Concentric lines, circles, and triangles, oh my. Even if you don’t want to branch away from the neutral color palette, this pattern makes a statement in any color choice.
