Retrospective fashion often translates into the vaguely cartoonish with revivalists, with everything that screams a particular decade or scene worn from head to foot. If you’re a lover of classic fifties fashion design, but not quite prepared for the all out red lipsticked rockabilly look, a more wholesome interpretation like this from French Connection is perfect.
With the classic 50s circle style skirt, this high necked dress combines a fitted bodice and more demure lower half in classic style. The chevron stripes are a nice touch, with a contrast stripe belt holding everything together.
It’s available now from French Connection for £80.
