Not everything with a 50s edge has to mean full circle skirts and prom style. If you’re looking for formal style that’s easy to wear but still has a touch of fifties retro at its heart, this Milly dress is perfect.
With a more fitted pencil skirt style, it’s much easier to wear for most of us. The cinched waist with bow and the notched neckline are my favourite details, adding a subtle flair that doesn’t swamp the polka dots.
It’s available online from Shopbop for $435.
