Next have rarely been known for being on the cutting edge of clothes design, but they’re far beyond the one stop workwear shop they used to be. Their new 60s Beat collection is certainly a more understated look at the decade’s fashion, but there are some pieces worth a look.
This Printed Shift Dress is one of the best, with its geometrical print and ever-classic monochrome. It’s made more accessible for all ages with a less harsh cream shade, and a soft chiffon-style material.
The high-neck and slightly belled sleeves show great attention to making this not just another modern dress, while the slightly daring hemline is a wearable way to get a sixties edge.
It’s available now from Next for £38.
