Of all the retro scenes that have undergone mainstream revivals, ska clothing has kept a relatively low profile. That makes it all the more exciting to see a reproduction design taking inspiration from this less plundered look, like this Specials Dress by Stop Staring.
While the dress shape is firmly grounded in a sleek fifties wiggle shape, it doesn't take away from the instant impact of the two tone check pattern. Providing an unusually vampy look for the scene, the dress is made from a stretch knit fabric for great fit that doesn't deny the sex appeal of ska.
