With so much revival of the vampish and sexier side of retro fashion – from pin-ups to Mad Men style sexy secretaries – we can often forget the appeal of more demure style. This Stella Dress from French Connection perfectly encapsulates the girlish innocence of the turn of the 60s.
With some of the delicately girlish prom appeal of fifties dresses, the embroidered bodice and more simplistic silhouette add a sixties vibe. The large skirt covers enough flesh to be youthful without dowdiness, while a light peach shade adds some luxurious, ethereal style.
It's available now from French Connection UK.
