Dear Thumbelina: 60's Party

Dear Thumbelina,

I've been invited to a 60's-themed party, but I don't know what to wear. Please advise.



Dear Borninthe90s,

First consider who your style icons are. Take their best qualities, and adapt them to fit your modern lifestyle.

STYLE ICON #1: JACKIE KENNEDY ONASSIS: Choose a fitted A-line style, wear sleek gloves, and fake a bob. Other options include a boxy jacket with a pencil skirt and a pillbox hat. Dress: Elijah Swing Shift Mini Dress for $192.90 at saks.com.

STYLE ICON #2: TWIGGY: Choose Mod-inspired pieces that are bright. Add large earrings, black tights, and a short wig. Dress: Paul and Joe Zipper Mod Dress for $288 at shopbop.com.

STYLE ICON/DESIGNER: MARY QUANT: Designer of the miniskirt, Quant created clothes that are as wearable today as they were then. Add a fitted black tee and a striped element. Skirt: Robert Rodriguez Golden Bow Skirt for $275 at eluxury.com.
