The most simplistic and effective ways to achieve a summery retro style are classic dresses, from forties tea to sixties shift. Favouring a fifties look, this summer has featured plenty of floral swing-style dresses on the high street.
This Floral Ottoman Crini Dress from Miss Selfridge has a chic and classic retro shape, from the high neckline and sleeveless cut to a full circle skirt and high waistline. The floral print combines classic inspiration with a more modern design influence, thanks to a bright and bold colour palette.
It's available online from Miss Selfridge for £45.
