Perhaps the most unlikely fashion comeback of this year has been the all-in-one, with fifties and sixties playsuits and jumpsuits hitting the rails in almost every high street range. There's still plenty of retro inspiration to be drawn for these pieces, as shown in this seventies style Belted Playsuit from River Island.
While we most often associate polka dots with 50s design nowadays, their use in 20th century fashion was by no means limited to that one decade. Showing a keen eye for crossover sixties style, this 60s Spot Dress by Yumi uses the spot print in a more modern style.
Each time the Summer season rolls around on the high street, sun dresses inspired by a variety of eras hit the rails. Fifties inspiration is always a popular option, thanks to the decade's use of feminine and flowing silhouettes.
This Spotty Dress from Peacocks' By Design range takes a late fifties/early sixties aesthetic and keeps thigns simple and classic. The sleeveless bodice balances out a full pleated skirt, carrying the large polka dot pattern with ease. Finishing touches like a vintage-look brooch and ribbon waist add sparkle without making this piece too dressy for the sunshine.
It's available now from Peacocks for £35.
While military influence in the sixties was often extreme and statement making, it's sometimes hard to incorporate such boldness into an every day wardrobe. For a more subtle take on the style, this classic Double Breasted Trench from Burberry Prorsum is a designer piece you can wear for any occasion.
The rich fabric carries this simple and timeless cut, giving a luxurious and feminine take on masculine detailing. The gold buttons and matching belt add structure and a sharp waist, while broad shoulders and an A-line skirt create an instantly retro silhouette.
