Topshop's latest collection 'Factory Girl' encompasses all that the swinging sixties had to offer. It provides you with garments that have just a fine line between glamour and grunge. For some, the sixties were all about fashion and jetsetting, for others it was cobbled streets and hand-me-downs. This collection combines the two with a collection fit for all occasions.
Inspired by icons such as Edie Sedgwick, Brigitte Bardot and Twiggy, the collection's beauty looks can be created with Topshop's own make up range. Try using Gel Liner in Ink (£8) to create a thick line that follows the shape of your upper lashline to get that doe-eyed sixties look.
Go for a tomboy twist by pairing a smart pencil skirt with an oversized knit. Accessorise with staples such as a pork pie hat and leather bags. There's a big mix of texture in this collection, including tweeds, leathers and knits. Explore them all in one outfit for an extra tactile look.
Macs were a big part of the sixties, only the sexy sirens had them and often didn't wear much underneath! Swing yours over your shoulders for an effortless style statement.
Go against all the fashion advice your mother gave you and invest in a pair of kitten heels for this trend. I've always embraced kitten heels since I was big enough to walk in them, but sadly the fashion world has never understood my feelings, until now! Pointed kitties give a lengthier, sexier leg which is just what you want for this trend.
