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.
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.
Bright pastel shades are often a hit in the Spring and Summer months on the high street, with many colours evoking a retro era instantly. This Scallop Dress from Dorothy Perkins has an immediately vintage look thanks to a very mid-sixties shade of pale green, not to mention some stylish detailing to boot.
The shift shape, in this dress, is simplistic enough for a 60s look, with the scallop cut-out detailing evoking a somewhat Quant-esque feeling through its graphic and inventive shape. The silhouette treads the line between femininity and androgyny with ease thanks to a mini-hemline that's offset by a high neck.
