The freshest look this spring draws on the appeal of the classic twinset. Combine original Fifties and Sixties separates from vintage clothes shops with the tiniest of the current, brightly coloured knits. If you want real authenticity - and if you can bear to - wear coloured pop socks, the Nineties equivalent of bobby socks
