Very often it can be a challenge to find retro fashion from any era other than the fifties and sixties. For those of you looking for a more unusual forties inspired look, this Midnight Stalks Flared Dress from French Connection takes some inspiration from the era to create a stunning frock.
The tea dress shape is elaborated on with longer sleeves and more exaggerated dimensions to the silhouette. Taking the famously forties shoulder accentuation, the sharp lines are made feminine by a flowing skirt and fitted waist. Finished in a silky fabric with antique-style bird print, it's a certain talking point for your wardrobe.
It's available new in at French Connection now for £75, as part of their Autumn/Winter 2010 preview.
