Much of the fifties looks available from reproduction brands and the high street of late have erred on the side of structural, vampish looks. If rockabilly style isn't for you, a more traditionally fifties look can be achieved with items like this Poppy Print Skirt from Dorothy Perkins.
The circle skirt style is given a softer edge with the use of a flowing cotton fabric, eschewing the heavily structured alternatives. The poppy print utilises the floral trend without falling for cliché, and adds impact with its colour palette too. Finished with a long hemline, this skirt is ideal for a more conservative and classic fifties inspired wardrobe.
It's available now from Dorothy Perkins for £30.
