How to nail 60s chic this season.

They say if you can remember it, you weren't there. But the 60s are back, with some fun, retro-inspired pieces that deliver maximum impact. The fab decade that brought us the mini skirt, pop art, space-age design and psychedelia has influenced designers' collections this season.

Think Mary Quant-style mini dresses, button-up plaid coats, Nancy Sinatra-esque boots that "were made for walking", cool "she's-a-mod" capes and head-turning flower-power looks featuring kaleidoscopic patterns.

Hair and makeup has a sexy Brigitte Bardot feel that is complemented perfectly by groovy accessories.

So go on and embrace your inner hippy child.
