The high street's retro trend du jour for this Winter is undoubtedly twenties and thirties influence. Thankfully eschewing the more obvious end of flapper style, many womenswear retailers are offering a more subtle take on the era's fashions with pieces like this Etienne Dress from Monsoon.
Many high street retailers would have us believe that the only glamorous shoes are those with towering heels or sky-high platforms. If you're after something that rivals the best stilettos, these stylish Patent T-Bars from Urban Outfitters are ideal.
This season's high street ranges promise plenty of 1920s influence in time for the usual glitz of Winterwear, providing an ideal choice in eveningwear for retro lovers everywhere. This Sequin Cami Top from New Look has a strong twenties aesthetic without falling for the same old clichés.
When it comes to a truly sixties styled mini skirt, the key is in clever and stylish details. This Tan Scallop Skirt from Oasis captures a very mid-sixties feeling, with only a simple few design elements.
While much of the high street's latest collections have moved away from retro influence, there are still some unusual pieces to be found that will satisfy. This Lace Collar Top from Miss Selfridge provides something a little out of the ordinary, with some thirties style design points.
The drop waist is an immediately 1930s cut, while the collar and colouring are reminiscent of a pierrot style outfit (without looking like a full blown costume). The overall effect, with lace details and sleeveless cut, provides a top that could also pass well in most sixties wardrobes, adding an unusual retro piece to any wardrobe.
It's available now from Miss Selfridge for £28.
Ethereal nude shades and girly design features are everywhere you turn in mainstream fashion at the moment, often providing plenty of fodder for a variety of vintage inspired aesthetics. This Hilda Bag from Missguided takes some of that style and toughens it up to create a great 80s accessory.
The clutch's design has a real feminine edge thanks to sweeping lines and a corsage detailing, capturing the eighties' love of earlier vintage inspiration. It's toughened up a typically spunky style of the era with zip detailing throughout, creating that line between pretty and punky that has become almost timeless.
