Much of the current sixties influenced pieces available this past few seasons have relied on a fairly narrow definition of the era's style. Branching out from patterned shift dresses is this Pleated Skirt Dress from ASOS, providing something less seen in high street prices.
When it comes to sixties inspired fashion designs, minimal need never mean dull, instead capturing the truly stylish subtlety of a look that's never overdone. This Minimal Coat from ASOS captures that feeling perfectly, with great cut and simply done detailing creating a timeless appeal.
The wool blend coat has an instantly luxurious appearance, in bold shades of green or red offset by single breasted gold button fastening. The addition of four flap-covered pockets, along with the collarless neckline, creates an unmistakeable sixties inspired look that's classic enough to wear for years to come.
It's now available from ASOS for £100.
Great twist on a usually mundane household item – these Arcade Light Switches by AlephDesign, perfect for the retro gaming addict.
They are what are, light switches made from actual arcade machine 'push' buttons, but able to work instead of your standard light switches. Just get an electrician in and you're away.
Available in various colour combinations and available from the seller via Etst, they sell for $45 (£28.63) each.
Culottes are an item that many of us unfondly associate with childhood, remembering some very dubious eighties styles that eventually caused the wide-legged short to disappear for many a year. Thankfully the current crop of high street designers are going further back into fashion history for inspiration, as seen in items like these High Waisted Culottes from Lipsy.
With a light and summery feel, this pair takes inspiration from the 1960s to combine a flowing wide-legged short with a structured high waistline and feminine daisy print fabric. The addition of matelot-style buttons at the waist lends another simple retro element too.
They're now available from Lipsy for £35.
With the return of seventies influence currently spreading like wildfire across high street stores, there's plenty of influences from the era to choose from. Denim's comeback in much more than jeans is evident with pieces like this Denim Button Skirt from Oasis.
The midi skirt has an instantly seventies feel thanks to its almost-knee length hem and a-line shape, with button through fastening at the front. The use of a mid stonewash blue shade keeps things classic and timeless, providing a perfect piece of day-time retro fashion.
It's available now from Oasis for £45.
Denim is a fabric that famously made its way into fashion from workwear in the 1950s, but it was a later decade that truly embraced it throughout fashion. The seventies took the classic blue stonewash and used in everything from jackets to dresses, like this retro Button Through Dress from Oasis.
The pinafore style of the dress is simple yet structured, creating a silhouette that wears well with such a stiff material. With a mid-length hemline, tailored waist and thick straps, the seventies style points are easy to see throughout.
It's available now from Oasis for £55.
