Peter Pan collared dresses have been the flavour of the month for sixties dress design of late, so it only seems fair that outerwear gets a look in on the iconic style. This Navy Peter Pan Coat from River Island has a simplistic design that looks timeless.
When most people think of seventies fashion, flares are often top of the list in both men's and women's wardrobes. Creating a cool and retro piece of clothing that can be worn for almost any occasion, these Ali High-Rise Flares from J Brand are a great take on the original seventies versions.
While most of us are still getting the best out of our Summer wardrobes, the first of Autumn's fare is moving into shops across the high street. This Navy Princess Coat from Miss Selfridge has an irresistible vintage feel that could even manage to make us look forward to September's weather.
The contrast between navy and brown has a very retro warmth, using a variety of textures and fabrics to create an air of luxury. The pleated skirt adds something special, with the addition of round metallic buttons to tie the sixties influences together.
It's now available from Miss Selfridge for £85.
When investing in something as often worn as outerwear, opting for classic styles is always the best option. Allowing for versatility and never overshadowing your carefully selected Friday night threads, coats like this Cavendish Mac from Hobbs are a must in every retro wardrobe.
Taking inspiration from the simplicity and class of sixties looks, the mac uses timeless structure like double breasted fastening and a belted waist to create a feminine silhouette. The use of white trim against a deep navy adds structure to the lapels and pockets, nodding to the sixties love of monochrome too.
Get yours from Hobbs now for £149.
Playsuits and shorts with vintage flair are back for another Summer season, adding something a little different to the many dress and skirt options on the high street. For the braver retrophiles amongst us, Topshop bring us this Two Piece Playsuit.
With a hint of fifties swimwear style to the piece, it's reminiscent of the 60s use of those style elements in daywear. The combination of a crop top and matching shorts is not for wallflowers, but effectively evokes the obsession with the girlish that pervaded much of mid sixties fashion. Finished in a nautical navy stripe the pieces can carry a vintage charm when worn separately too.
