Bow Neck Jacket by Christian Dior


Classic suiting and tailored items are very much the order of the day in women's retro fashion, thanks in large part to the popularity of Mad Men. Thankfully this means many more truly vintage inspired pieces for all of us, like this Bow Neck Jacket from Christian Dior.

This jacket's exceptional tailoring and structure have an instantly late fifties/early sixties impact. The ideal choice of outerwear for either a sharp work environment or a special social event, this is one of few designer pieces that will really belong in (and out of) your wardrobe for years to come.

Made from 100% wool, it'll set you back £1300 from Browns.
