Of the myriad nautical styled dresses available on the high street at the moment, this version by Rare is one of the best yet for retro looks. With an instantly recognisable fifties flavour, this dress is an unusual gem.
The use of a halter neck, combined with well defined sweetheart neckline give a perfectly done pin-up look, while the high waist of the skirt and figure-hugging cut give a wiggle effect. The colour scheme and oversized buttons give an immediate nautical feel without veering into the dress up box.
