The Lumsden girls are set to wow us again with their last big event of the year: Pimm’s 2013. To honour a truly British drink, the theme is ‘Swinging Sixties’ in a celebration of British style. Whether you want to go all out, or just nod to the trend, this theme contains endless options.

The ‘60s can be divided into 3 distinct style tribes: Mods, Rockers and Hippies. For the Mods, a printed shift dress is a great way to interpret the look without looking too costume-y. A dress in this style is the perfect Sixties reference, whilst also channelling sunny summer vibes. Double whammy!

Rocker doesn’t have to mean head to toe leather. Here, Daisy Lowe throws a cropped leather jacket over a floral dress for instant rocker cool.

Remember to look extra fly in a pair of aviators on the bus ride there. A hippie-inspired outfit is a great option if you’re looking for something a bit more laid-back – and if you managed not to lose your floral headband at Under Canvas last week.

Tay Swift looks very Pimm’s appropriate here in hippie-style florals with co-ordinating hairband.

Hair and make-up inspiration should be taken from one of the ultimate sixties style goddesses: Bridgette Bardot. Think big eyes and even bigger hair.

Fellas can take inspiration from George Harrison and opt for a zany patterned blazer, or go urban-chic with dapper bow ties and mixed prints for a classic St Andrews look. Don’t be afraid of growing in some designer stubble!

Above all, make sure you’re wearing something comfortable so you can dance the night away to the live bands and DJs. It’s going to be a wonderful night!
