The latest editorial for ELLE UK, titled 'The Misshapes,' features looks inspired by London's mod-era fashion. Model Naty Chabanenko is dressed in several gorgeous pastel-colored outfits that include a few iconic styles from the 1960s: Go-Go boots, flared skirts and old-fashioned riding hats. The go-go boots are especially indicative of a 60s influence on these stellar looks.

One ensemble is particularly lighthearted and full of 60s charm. It consists of a mint-green dress over a long-sleeved white shirt. The dress's A-line shape with a flared bottom is almost childlike and gives the outfit a feeling of whimsy. Topped off with some giant white platform go-go boots, this ensemble is a fun and funky modern take on a classic fashion style.

'The Misshapes' is a striking editorial that will hopefully help to popularize 1960s fashion. Perhaps women will be strutting down the street in go-go boots of their own before not too long. Stats for Preppy 60s-Inspired Fashion Trending: Older & Mild
