While Warehouse celebrates 35 years' residence on the Great British High Street, they continue to bring us classic fashion at affordable prices. Looking backwards to their original seventies fare, this Orange Midi Dress from Warehouse oozes vintage appeal.
With girly sixties styles, it's all about the balance of elements to prevent any piece looking over the top or clichéd. This Peter Pan Collar Dress by TFNC is a great example of a great use of feminine design points to create a chic retro look.
The mini dress shape balances a daringly short hemline with a high collar and long sleeves, while the loose a-line fit provides a chic sixties silhouette. Details like the peter pan notched collar are instantly vintage inspired, while the chiffon pleats add a cool sixties feel that's not often seen from high street designers.
It's available now from ASOS for £42.
Soft and feminine fifties and sixties looks have shot up in popularity thanks to pop culture's current love of the Mad Men aesthetic. For those of us who want something a little out of the ordinary, this Betty's Wild Side Dress by BB Dakota takes fifties inspiration and adds some edgier sixties sparkle.
The sharp angles of the pleated skirt elevate the circle silhouette's look, creating a more modern sixties feeling. With a demure bodice, the dress carries an avant-garde impressionist floral print without departing too far from the retro aesthetic.
It's available online from Fred Flare for $98.
While many modern reproductions of sixties dresses lean heavily on busy prints, there often lies a truer vintage look in those with sharply observed structure. This Sunray Pleat Dress by John Zack chooses to focus on a unique silhouette, providing a dress that has an instant mid-sixties vibe.
The blue-grey colour is an authentically muted choice that leaves room for the textured pleating to look more subtle and stylish. The a-line cut and mini hemline are accentuated by the babydoll effect of such loose and flowing fabric, while a high neckline and basic sleeveless cut are sharp and chic.
