Great tailoring has always been central to effective retro fashion, creating those striking silhouettes that signify each era of 20th century fashion. These Mia Tailored Trousers from Whistles need nothing else to create an instantly fifties feel for any occasion.
While the kids were getting all the wear possible out of neon brights and legwarmers, the eighties is a decade perhaps best known for its executive fashion. Power dressing for women truly defined the workplace's look, with suiting taking on new and striking shapes.
This Power Shoulder Blazer from ASOS really captures the essence of the look well, without veering into exaggeration. The padded shoulders create the perfect silhouette, balanced by a neatly tailored bodice with double buttoned waist. Available in two colours, it's the rich navy that really rounds of this retro look.
