A large number of people dedicated to retro sartorialism stick with one era and do it well, but for some of us it's hard to narrow our wardrobes down to just one decade or trend. This Sequin Palm Top from Marks and Spencer is a great choice for the latter, thanks to its combination of both fifties and eighties style points.
Playing on the 50s love for all things tropical and Hawaiin, the palm print and bold turquoise shade give a hint of rockabilly inspiration. Worn tucked into a high waisted pencil skirt, this top could instantly give a fifties chic. Worn as it comes, though, the draped jersey shape is unmistakeably 80s, providing a top you can dress up or down whatever era you're after.
It's available from The Limited Collection at M&S for £29.50.
