Much of the original style of the fifties and early sixties was based on a fresh-faced femininity, especially in the US mainstream. For a true vintage inspired look, there's little more effective than a well chosen dress like this Silka Pot Dot number by Tucker.
The designer's piece has plenty of luxury thanks to silk fabrics and expertly executed cut, while the look itself is subtle and stylish. The wrapped neckline with a tea dress style skirt creates a girly, yet conservative silhouette, while a red polka dot print adds some extra retro appeal.
It's available online from Matches Fashion for £435.
