This past weekend, I saw the movie An Education, a British film directed by Lone Scherfig and starring the adorable Carey Mulligan (kind of looks like Audrey Hepburn, doesn't she?). I liked the movie's aesthetic (although not some of its moralizing), but I luurrved the clothes. Every piece fit her perfectly, hit her body in the right places, and flattered her.
I couldn't find a picture of my favorite ensemble from the closing scene of the movie. Mulligan is riding a bicycle through Oxford wearing rolled up jeans and flats with her hair in a ponytail, and she looks sweet and studious and stylish. If you need some early-sixties inspiration that's not Mad Men, I suggest you check this out.
