Thanks to the eighties revival of recent years, lace has made its way back into the mainstream of fashion. It's finally being used for a wider variety of looks, delving further into fashion history for inspiration to the 1960s with this Lace Babydoll Dress from Dorothy Perkins.
The dress has an instantly early sixties cut, with three quarter sleeves, a short full skirt and high neckline creating a cutesy retro silhouette that was found on both sides of the pond at the time. The daisy print lace adds a textural edge to the simple cut, finished in a shade of red that's just daring enough to stop this being too girlish.
It's available now from Dorothy Perkins for £42.
