Finding that killer vintage-look top you can pair with almost anything is often a near impossibility, with most retro design focusing on statement dresses or coats. Thankfully dedicated retro brands like Heartbreaker Fashion have the solution, the latest being this fifties style Gretta Top.
To carry off a bold retro print, designers have to get the cut and shape of any piece just right for a true vintage feel. Heartbreaker Fashion rarely put a foot wrong, hitting the mark once more with this simple but stylish Monique Dress.
Shown here in their new print, aptly named Summer, they've plumped for a classic swing dress style that's ideal for the season. With a high neckline, sleeveless cut and subtle flaring at the skirt, the cute addition of a bow at the waist is made all the more effective by blending with the all-over print.
It's available now from Heartbreaker Fashion online for $90.
For an instantly recognisable shot of US fifties fashion in any girl's wardrobe, a diner style dress is a great choice. For a hint of that Americana feel, without falling for cliché or cartoonishness, this Betty Lou Dress by Heartbreaker Fashion is very worthy of a look-in.

Oversized shades have stayed at the forefront of mainstream fashion for many summers now, offering a myriad of mid-20th century styles at affordable prices. If you're after something out of the ordinary, however, Heartbreaker Fashion have the answer with these Tres Noir Sunglasses.
Eschewing the later sixties and seventies rounded styles, they've opted for a fifties influenced cats eye shape. However, this pair aren't as difficult to get away with as many similar looks, thanks to a larger lens and rounded lines throughout.

Heartbreaker Fashion may focus on 40s and 50s looks for most of their design influence, but it seems they can bring just as much of their usual flare to sixties pieces too. This Fifi Dress creates a chic mod style in a wide variety of colours and prints.
The dress structure is simple and effective, using a basic shift with an empire line. The sleeveless cut, a-line silhouette and contrasting folded collar all combine for a timeless mod style that doesn't put a foot wrong. The chosen prints available range from argyle (left), through houndstooth to more headturning floral prints (right).
Each version is available online from Heartbreaker Fashion for $80.
With one of the keenest eyes for retro chic out there, Heartbreaker Fashion has become something of a favourite of ours. This Paradise Dress is the perfect example of why, with stunning vintage inspired looks, great construction and a reasonably affordable price tag.
Shown here in the Katrina print fabric, the dress has an irresistible 50s pin-up vibe, combining a Hollywood glamour with Hawaiin take on exotica. The result is a dress that clings that curves to create a bombshell silhouette, while the sarong ties at the waist and shoulder mean this is a lot easier to wear than it looks.
