TSM Outfit Post: 1960s Inspired Modern Spring Work Wear from COS

Bridgette Bardot, Barbie and by way of a somewhat embarrassing admission, Baywatch’s Pamela Anderson. I wanted big blonde hair and blue eyes like these women and I would have easily traded in my ethnic features to look more like the kids did at school growing up. It’s funny to think about those thoughts now, having grown up to happily embrace my heritage and appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of women of all nationalities.

When I picked up this shift dress from COS recently, it instantly resonated a 1960s vibe within me. Despite not having the trademark blonde Bardot-esque tresses and baby blues reminscent of this era, I wanted to create a fun fresh 1960s inspired look for Spring for the modern woman adaptable for today’s work hard play hard culture …

I picked up this dress for £35 (50% off, woot!), ready for Spring (any day now London, any day now …) and it is my very first purchase from COS having previously been a bit daunted by the multitude of colour co-ordinated racks. While I’m used to more fitted clothing, COS’s minimalist concept and designs (think Scandinavian Country Road) means none of their pieces are overfly fitted, sometimes borderline shapeless, but always very comfortable.

Colour blocking is an easy way of introducing colour into your wardrobe for work if you’re inclined to go for black all the time. A nude coloured neckline like this dress elongates the upper torso and is really great for you if you have a full bust/figure. The dress was actually quite a bit longer so I had the hem and sleeves altered to fit my shorter frame but dresses like these will really suit you if you have an inverted triangle, hourglass and apple shape figure (body shape post here).

    • Thanks Anh! I had so much fun on this shoot :) I absolutely love the red Celine trio! My friend said it looked very ‘asian’ but I’m glad I stuck to my guns b/c I love the pop of colour. Cobalt blue would have been my next choice so my vote is for that colour 😛
