Right now, the UK version of West Elm seems to lag behind its US counterpart when it comes to new arrivals. This Archie sofa can be found at the US online store right now – we're just hoping it might make an appearance in the UK at some point.
It's often tempting to shy away from bold colours when buying a heavy coat, opting for neutrals to wear with everything. For truly vintage-inspired looks, however, an injection of the right colour palette can be the most effective choice. This Double Breasted Plaid Coat by designers Tulle is anything but dull, yet still manages to keep an edge of classic design.
While chic and subtle nude shades made up much of fashion's retro fodder in 2010, many brands are bringing colour back into our wardrobes with style. This Bright Stuff Dress from ModCloth provides a vintage inspired dress that's ideal for Spring and Summer days.
The simple short sleeves and mid-hemline cut are given some femininity and retro chic with the red belt and matching Peter Pan collar. With a primary coloured plaid check, the dress takes fifties and sixties inspiration without going over the top.
It's available now from ModCloth for $64.99.
Modern reinterpretations of the classic trench coat often opt for a utilitarian style, choosing traditional and sharp style elements for impact. If you favour a cutesier tone to your retro style, this Plaid Natasha Trench from Fred Flare is the ideal sixties-inspired choice.
The structure of the coat is basic and chic, with an empire line and double breasted buttons. It's the colour palette, however, that speaks of mid-sixties looks, with a yellow plaid and bubblegum pink buttons to finish. The overall look has just enough mod style to create a stylish everyday retro item.

Heritage prints and fabrics are always a swift way to achieving a timeless look, working best with items of outerwear. This Kate Equestrian Jacket from Fred Flare taps into an English gentrified style, adding some strong retro fashion elements too.
The jacket's shape combines menswear inspiration with a feminine silhouette, with the corseting detail at the back creating a sharply defined waist. The use of contrasting suede accents adds some cute vintage style, while the front structure stays classic.
