The use of Eastern and African influences in vintage fashion is often best remembered in later sixties looks, worn on almost everyone from The Beatles to Woodstock kids. The hippy aesthetic didn't die with that decade, however, with the 1970s taking those influences further into the mainstream.
This Eastern Embellished Tunic from Wallis taps into that time in seventies fashion, with a print and loose fitting cut that provides a more polished version of folky sixties style. The use of intricate paisley print, rich bright colours and a loose chiffon fabric combines to create a look that's just ethereal enough for the masses of the era.
It's available now from Wallis for £36.
