Inspired by the factory girls of the swinging sixties, currently one of the four trends at Topshop, box shapes & block colours were key in today’s outfit recipe. Because I was going for a haircut, I decided to keep each garment pretty simple to ensure there was no fuss with extra hair trimmings! I wanted my look to reflect my haircut, quite sleek & geometric, so I kept the colours complementary up top, picking out a tone of pink from the jacket & reflecting it in my crop top. I opted for the crop top to add extra proportions to the look & ensure the overall finish wasn’t too square. Dig out your old jersey tee & carefully cut the bottom off, just above the belly button line to achieve this look on a student budget!
I decided to keep the lower look darker to add a sophisticated edge and to reflect Manchester’s regular temperamental mood. Matched accessories, like Ray-Bans’ instantly recognisable shape, help finish off that 60s side!
