Style #TBT: Jean Shrimpton Inspires Our Must-Have Transition Piece

Share

There’s rarely a day when we’re not in a mod mood—and what better way to channel a ’60s vibe than with outfit inspiration à la Jean Shrimpton? Known as the face of the Swinging Sixties movement (and the force behind the mini skirt), the It-Brit essentially defined mod style, hence the reason we’re after her long-sleeved look that’s perfect for transitional wear. The classic silhouette and whimsical print make the dress impactful in its own right—a few key accessories (prim oxfords, a sleek watch and a gold band ring) complete the look for summer. For fall, updating the piece is effortless—just sub in over-the-knee boots, a chunky cardigan and a wide-brimmed hat for a bohemian-cool vibe. Here, the four key pieces you need to channel the look now.
