Thanks to a return of nautical influence on the high street, horizontal stripes are in abundance in current womenswear. While they may not be the easiest print to wear for some, they are often a fast and easy way to a retro look in your wardrobe, just as with this Stripe Vest Dress from Miss Selfridge.
The black and white stripes eschew a stereotypical nautical colour choice of navy, while the red oversized bow ties in with the theme without looking clichéd. With a figure-hugging cut this dress draws on a fifties wiggle shape, giving it an extra retro dimension with an eighties-look ruffled hemline.
