The current trend for is also heavily inspired by the 60s. Since 2005, Twiggy has acted as the face of Marks And Spencer in their successful advertising campaigns.

Women dressed to match Op Art paintings, with their stripes, checks and wavy line prints. Romanticized granny clothes from several generations ago, like pioneer women, returned fashion back to long dresses and sleeves, ruffles, lace trim, small cotton prints, and long hair worn down, not up, this time. Woman wore unbelievably short skirts and men wore tunics and capes.

I am constantly looking for good quality,reasonable priced, fashionable items that suit my age group. From day wear to Day Glo in less than a decade.
