For my first look, I was inspired by ’60s Mod fashion. This look is simple but bold and really makes a statement. I wore this orange and navy, geometric shift dress and the short length and roll neck really add to that ’60s vibe. I paired it with these spacey white sunglasses and styled my hair in a bouffant style. Add white gogo boots and long dolly lashes to really push this look.

For this look I was inspired by ’80s youth culture. I wore this vintage, patterned rah rah skirt with a simple white vest and wore an oversized denim jacket on top. I accessorised this look with a pair of gold hoop earrings and a rainbow scrunchie in this big, crimped hairstyle. To add the finishing touch, smudge on some blue eyeshadow and a pink lip for a true 80s look.
