No idea why it's described as The Top Next Door, but this particular garment could be making its way into your wardrobe if you pick it up at ModCloth.
Although the seventies trend that's swept this Summer's high street collections has brought plenty of great vintage inspired designs, there's never anyone quite so en pointe as the original designers. Taking inspiration from the house's original designs, this Cape Back Dress comes from Halston's Heritage line.
In a vibrant shade of coral, the mini dress is elevated beyond the ordinary by chic draping and rich fabric. The cape back design creates a head-turning silhouette, against the simplicity of the sleeveless dress cut.
It's now available in the UK from Matches Fashion for £398.
For an instant shot of sixties style, the subtle line between femininity and androgyny is the perfect aesthetic to follow. This Colour Block Funnel Neck Top from New Look manages to effortlessly combine the two with an unmistakeable nod to British sixties style.
The sleeveless cut shows just enough skin to balance a bust-minimising cut in the bodice, with a funnel neck adding that extra retro edge to the silhouette. It's the structural lines of the colour blocking, however, than truly make this top, finished in a striking combination of orange-red and black.
It's now available from New Look for £16.99.
Though the high street may be awash with seventies inspired looks in window displays and storefronts, there's always pieces referencing a variety of retro themes to be found with the right digging. This Green Ponti Dress from River Island has a cool sixties feel that's ideal for the sunny days still to come.
The dress has a simple shape, with a column body and sleeveless cut, the contrasting crew neck collar and front stripe create a sharp structure from a casual dress, with the addition of a black bow at the collar providing a fun retro element.
It's available from River Island now for £28.
With the summer truly in full swing, simple and stylish frocks are always the order of the day to keep cool in more than one sense of the word. This Polka Dot Shift Dress from River Island is an ideal choice, with plenty of mid-sixties chic and practicality combined.
The shift cut instantly creates a mod-style silhouette, with a sleeveless cut and high neckline providing balance to the more feminine A-line skirt and mini hemline. Finished in a light green polka dot, the addition of a contrasting bow detail at the bust adds that youthful feel of the mid-sixties with ease.
It's available from River Island for £39.99.
While bold prints and wild colour combinations are often the go-to for many designers for summer retro fodder, there's nothing quite so effective as well chosen structure and colour blocking. Creating a cool and effortlessly chic sixties style, this Pop Girl Dress by Marmalade gets it spot on.
The dress structure is simplistic, but never boring, with a cool mod-inspired shift shape that's tailored to perfection. While the orange shade is instantly vintage-look, the inclusion of contrasting white piping adds shape, while highlighting the bow detailing at the chest.
