Alice & Olivia may not sell themselves as a retro reproduction line, but it's clear to see the influence many of their designs have taken from the 50s, 60s and beyond. This brocade shift dress is from their Scoop line, and provides a youthful, fun piece of sixties retro.
The understated yellow shade gives this just the right amount of girlish charm, while remaining firmly in the colour palette of the era. The shape is simple but perfectly done, with a sleeveless, high neck cut and a mid thigh hem. The unstructured shape means this mini-dress errs on the right sight of daring.
It's available online from Bluefly for $178.
