The Sixties are Back and Here's Why:

With fashion month beginning, fashionistas everywhere are looking to street style photography and runway shows to find the latest fall outfit inspiration and spot the latest trends for spring. While several trends may vary, one thing is for certain this fall: the 60's are back and mod is looking better than ever.

Fashion in the sixties was characterized by the iconic styles of women like Jackie Kennedy, Bridget Bardot, and Jane Birkin, who derived their chic aesthetic from the French. Recently, modern collections by high fashion labels, such as Dior, Jacquemus and Wanda Nylon, featured berets in their F/W 2017 collections. Berets, the most recognizable French style emblem, are chic accessories that can still add some edge to any look due to their eye-catching shape and delicate allure. Every girl with her eye on the fall fashion prize will be investing in the beret trend this season.

The social revolution of the sixties also created one of the most powerful items in women's wear: the mini skirt. In years following, minis were traded for shorts or skirts of longer lengths, but as we enter the next phase of feminism, women are reaching for the iconic mini once again. These skirts are so versatile in terms of styling, it makes it almost impossible to want to wear anything else. Style mini skirts with flats, mules or your favorite fall ankle boots and a statement clutch. With endless styling choices, and the appearance of endless legs, mini skirts will make you ask yourself "Why even bother with pants again?"

Fall is undoubtably the coziest season, and in the celebration of warmth and chenille blankets, we find ourselves never wanting to take off our favorite sweater. This is where cashmere turtlenecks come into play. Whether you opt for a mock neck, a cowl neck, or the classic turtle neckline, the possibilities for a classic fall look are endless when you have the right fuzzy fashion piece. Ferragamo did turtlenecks best this season in the stunning Fall 2017 collection by Massimiliano Giornetti.

Another nostalgic trend this season is the return of a pattern you either love or hate. Plaid is a re-occurring pattern in the fashion world that comes back every few seasons with a new attitude. This season, plaid is coming back in the form of statement pieces found in shows such as blazers (Off-White), coats (Prada and Wang), and feminine tailored pants (Brock Collection and Tome). If you tend to shy away from loud patterns and bright colors, plaid is the perfect way to incorporate a little bit of fun into your fall wardrobe, as it can be easily paired with basics you already have in your closet.

No matter what trends and looks you put together this fall season, your best accessory is confidence. Whether you're rocking a plaid mini skirt or a brand new beret, wear what you love and don't be afraid to express yourself through fashion.
