Dolly dresses usually conjure up an image of 60s mod style, but the cutesy style predates the decade that made it most famous. This Applique Dress from Miss Selfridge pays homage to a thirties era style, with some modern twists.
From the high street shop's petites range, the dress uses a classic colour palette of cream and black to give a luxurious look. The deco style detailing at the collar, combined with flowing fabrics, an almost Grecian look and a high V neck give a chic retro feel, while the hemline is shortened for a modern take on the girly dolly dress.
It's available now from Miss Selfridge for £38.
