Sandra Dress by Pinup Couture

Sandradress

When it comes to the fashions of the 1940s and 50s, a truly striking silhouette is always key to making a lasting impression. Reproduction brand Pinup Couture rarely put a foot wrong, and their new Sandra Dress is no exception, with a knockout fifties shape.

The circle skirt is spared no expense, with plenty of fabric to create that expensive and genuine look of fifties originals. The plunging v at the neckline, combined with cute capped sleeves is effortlessly retro, without falling for the clichés. Finished with faux frog clips at the front, the contrasting black on green has a truly timeless elegance.

It's now available from Pinup Girl Clothing for $124.
