One of the only good things about January has got to be the time when you start seeing the new collections coming in, with the trends we saw at Fashion Week last season emerging in stores. This promise of a new season always excites me and makes me want to try out the different looks, incorporating them into my own style. 

PrettyLittleThing recently challenged me to style one of this season's trends, and I opted for a subtle, contemporary take on the '60s. Seen at the likes of Louis Vuitton and Orla Kiely for SS16, the '60s is the decade to emulate this year. This shift dress with a cut-out neck is the perfect piece for this trend, and when worn with an all-black outfit of belted blazer, cropped mom jeans and lace-up heels, it becomes 2016-appropriate. And cat-eye sunglasses, of course, because where would the '60s have been without them?
