Get the Look: Sheridan Smith in Cilla

20 Sep

Have you been watching Cilla, the new three-part biopic about sixties redhead Cilla Black? Sheridan Smith looks AMAZING as a redhead. I loved her style before when she played a redhead in Mrs Biggs, so couldn’t wait when I heard she was returning to our screens as Cilla.  The sixties dresses and hair are to die for.

Get the Look: Sixties Tartan Dress

Tartan often makes an autumn comeback, and it’s big for autumn/winter 2014. Its practical colour combinations and no-nonsense print means you can go for more subtle version for the office or punk it up for weekend coffees with the girls. Here’s how to get wear your tartan dress, Cilla-style.

 

LONG-SLEEVES, DON’T CARE

At only £12, this dress is an absolute steal. The long sleeves and high neckline are great for the colder months but the mid calf length stops it from being too frumpy. Team it up with tights and boots.

GOING OUR SEPARATE WAYS

Check Top*, £16 and Check Pencil Skirt*, £25 both Miss Selfridge

The thing I like about these coordinated separates is that you get several outfits for the price of one. Wear together as a dress, the skirt with a top or shirt and the top with trousers and bingo, three outfits! Plus if you want to go crazy, you can even buy matching leggings!

You can’t go wrong with a pencil dress. This fitted, cap sleeved dress from Dorothy Perkins is the perfect way to wear the trend in the office.

Ok, so not quite 1960s, but there’s something about this plaid print dress that I just love. Wear it on its own for a night out, or slip it on over some warm woolly tights and a nice sensible coat and you’re good to go.

In case you missed the first episode, here’s a preview! Let me know if you’d like to see more of Cilla’s style!
