If you could flit back in time to any era, which would you choose?

For us, it'd undoubtedly be the 1960s, the age of Peter Pan collars, mini skirts and the birth of the IT-girl.

Even now, Sixties influences fashion are present on the catwalk - just look at Jeremy Scott's quirky Spring/Summer 2016 collection from New York Fashion Week if you need proof.

While this summer was a salute to the Seventies, autumn/winter is very much nodding towards the 1960s.

Thanks to icons such as Jean Shrimpton, Edie Sedgwick and Twiggy; winged eyeliner, big lashes and voluminous hair (helloooo beehives) are still very much en vogue. For those who want to channel this wonderful era, stock up on mini skirts, coloured tights, turtle necks, pinafore dresses and anything covered in geometric prints.

Towards the end of the Sixties, Twiggy paved the way for a more androgynous look with her boyish crop of hair. Meanwhile Audrey Hepburn took to wearing straight leg capri pants with ballet pumps and a chic ponytail for a paired-back, boyish look.

While we're (sadly) not going to be transported back to the Swinging Sixties anytime soon, we can still ogle these stunning photographs and take inspiration for the season ahead.
