Anya Taylor-Joy as Sandie and Matt Smith as Jack in Last Night In Soho


Search for the Swinging Sixties á la Tatler’s latest cover star and queen of vintage, Anya Taylor-Joy. Her babydoll face and bouffant hair make the perfect canvas for a groovy girl out on the town. Taylor-Joy’s latest role in psychological thriller, Last Night in Soho, has put these trends firmly back on the map – just in time for the season’s 60s-inspired pieces to hit the racks.

For Spring/Summer 21, designers returned to the decade of super-short hemlines and loud and proud prints. Saint Laurent took notes from their founder’s original muse Betty Catroux with a collection filled with retro shapes and a nostalgic edge; while Dior’s Pre-Fall collection saw much mod motivation plus the return of the PVC trench. Another pivotal fashion moment from the decade made a long-awaited revival too; the go-go boot. This calf-high style put its best foot forward at the likes of Longchamp, Acne Studios and the look’s originator, Courrèges.

Embrace this enigmatic era with Mary Quant-esque minis courtesy of Miu Miu and Twiggy-like shift dresses from Prada in a fun and flirty throwback to yesteryear. You’ll never be amiss for marvellous muses to inspire you. Go for Bardot if you want to ensure a sultry mystique, Birkin if you’re looking for laidback luxe and channel the eternal elegance of Talitha Getty if you’re pining for bohemian beauty. There’s a 60s It girl for every occasion.

As warm summer nights begin to draw to a close, there’s not a better look to embody when at an evening soirée. Here are our hippest picks with enigmatic Anya energy, perfect for a night in Soho.
