Wartime fashion on the high street, courtesy of this rather bold 1940s-style Petite Floral Print Dress at Topshop.
If you need something retro for the smaller space, the House by John Lewis Carrie petite sofa just might work.
When we think of summer dresses it's often florals and bright colours that spring to mind. Just because the weather is brighter, however, doesn't mean more sultry shades are unwelcomed in fashion. Ideally using a very retro shade of brown, this Sleeveless Shirt Dress from Topshop Petite is effortlessly summery.
The sleeveless shirt cut has a subte sixties feel, enhanced by the scalloped Peter Pan collar and button-up front. The lightly cinched waist allows for a sharp silhouette, along with a feminine and flowing skirt shape. The tan brown colour choice is lifted with a white polka dot, while retaining that very sixties shade.
It's available now from Topshop for £32.
With the recent comeback of lace fabrics on the high street there has been plenty of 1980s influence going along with it. The fabric can be utilised in a huge range of retro looks, however, as shown by this Lace Shift Dress from Miss Selfridge.
With a sixties feeling that's immediately evident, this dress uses the textured lace fabric to create a simple but stylish mid-decade look. The cream and black colour palette combines easily to enhance the sharp structural detailing of the collar, pockets and mini hemline.
Get it from Miss Selfridge's Petites section now for £42.
