If the 1960s in fashion was all about daring colour injections, the seventies interpretation of that trend brought with it an altogether more muted use of prints and shades. This Blossom Print Dress from Wallis shows the influence of the crossover of the two decades, with a relaxed and folky take on florals.
The use of a chiffon-look fabric lends itself well to the bell sleeves and flowing skirt, with a tie-belt at the waist to create shape. The combination of a bright orange floral backed with black takes the colour palette into the seventies, still retaining an effortless retro feel.
It's available now from Wallis for £48.
