Twiggy. Brigitte Bardot. Carnaby Street. Woodstock. Warhol Factory. The ‘60s were tumultuous, sure. But the chaos of the decade produced some of the most inspired and enduring styles. Welcome to retro chic.

1. GLAMOUR GIRL
A cubby fur like this Marc Jacobs Ombre Fox Jacket is the hallmark of IT girls…then and now. $9,800, 11 East Walton Street

The dramatic, sexy cat eye is a fall pre-requisite, and the felt tip on Chanel’s liquid eyeliner (Écriture de Chanel) makes application precise. $35, www.chanel.com

Channel London’s Carnaby Street cool with Saint Laurent’s Low-heeled, Crystal-Encrusted Go-Go Boots. $1,400, 11 East Walton Street
