This Fashionisto is wearing a hunter green blazer layered over a black tank with shredded denim.

My absolute favorite decade is the 1960’s. Especially, London in the 60’s. Twiggy, Carnaby Street, and of course, the fab four: The Beatles–early Beatles, a young Paul McCartney singing innocent tunes like “It Won’t Be Long” and “I Wanna Be Your Man.”
Clearly, the fashions out of the British Invasion are more geared towards the black and white, mod mini-dresses worn by waif models like Twiggy, with enhanced huge eyes before Lady Gaga channeled the look in her “Bad Romance” music video.
But the modern English men of the swinging 60’s also had some stellar style. This Fashionisto had that handsome, dapper look that made the girls swoon–even without the accent. He is wearing a very polished look of a black trench coat over a crisp white button-down, classic black slacks, and leather black loafers.
Get in the English spirit with these British basics:

There is nothing more disheartening than seeing a girl running to class in four-inch stilettos. I am all for those Jimmy Choos, but there is a time and place for them—and New England winter is not it. All Fashionistas who inhabit Boston need a great pair of boots to strut their stuff and be comfortable at the same time.
This Fashionista is sporting a simple pair black leather boots adorned with a brown buckle on the back. Check out these similar styles from Aldo, Anthropologie, and DKNYC.
