The high street is beginning to rush in new lines for Spring and Summer, and the latest of the many retro revivals from these shops seems to be the forties tea dress. This version from Miss Selfridge is a charming version that has clear vintage influence.
The simple and demure silhouette of the dress is enhanced by light and flowing fabric, giving the movement that's key to a genuine vintage piece. With an all over ditsy floral print, the pattern's retro charm is in the colouring, which remains muted enough to carry off a forties feeling.
