To keep it modern, pair something — or two or three things — from the ‘60s with something new, she suggests, perhaps some on-trend coloured skinny jeans with a fruit-print sleeveless shirt tied at the waist and ballet flats, or a polka-dot top, denim shorts and gladiator-style flat sandals.
The best time to go back in fashion history is when we’ve moved far enough away from it, Roe says. “Once you’ve done it, you don’t want to do it again. Leave it for someone else.”
That puts 19-year-old Mitchell in the clear. “I’m obsessed with retro fashion. My whole wardrobe is vintage-inspired. I’m not a big fan of the neon that’s a big trend. I’m more classic, so I knew I’d be superexcited for this role because I knew I’d love the costumes.”
She thinks that the prevailing silhouette, which hugged the body without being too revealing, would be flattering to many body types.
