Shirt style dresses might seem a relatively modern invention, since they're constantly revamped by design houses and high street alike. The truth is, they've been around for longer than most of us, and are a great way to get some 1930s style, when they're done just right.

This French Connection Deco dress is a great example of how to get the pre-war version just right. Combining the masculine collar and sleeves with an ultra feminine skirt and print make this ideal. Fitting perfectly with the beginnings of androgyny in womens fashion at the time, this treads the line well. The muted, elegant colours of the dress make it look classically retro too.

It's available from French Connection UK for £75.
