The high street is currently awash with maxi dresses, with most using seventies style as their source of vintage inspiration. Offering something a little different is this Tropical Print Maxi from Miss Selfridge, using a fifties-look exotica print on the thoroughly modern silhouette.
The bold colour palette brings to life a print that takes inspiration from fifties styled florals, reminiscent of the Hawaiin hula girl influence on the pin-up scene, and later in mainstream fashion. The simple, strapless maxi shape is a modern cut, but is still simple enough to let the retro influence take the fore.
It's available from Miss Selfridge now for £40.
