When the high street's more affordable stores tackle vintage inspiration, it's ideal for stocking up on affordable classics that you can wear every day. This A Line Ponte Mini Skirt from New Look has an effortlessly sixties feel that you can team with almost any sixties pieces.
Though mod look fashion may be the sixties inspiration which dominates our high streets, there's a huge amount of inspiration available from across the Atlantic from the decade. This Leopard Coat from ASOS is ideal for tapping into that grittier New York style, exemplified by Andy Warhol's factory girls.
Thanks to the recent love affair with sexier sixties styles from across the pond, there's been fewer nods to the era's youthful British fashion of late. With summer's return, that's about to change with pieces like this Bow Shift Dress from River Island showing inspiration from girlish mid-sixties chic.
The simple shift design has a sharp cut and great angles, with an exaggerated a-line skirt and fitted upper. The addition of a bow at the high neckline ensures the style is kept young while also creating the minimised bust that was popular at the time. Finished in a block coral pink, it's perfect for pairing with your dolly shoes and white tights.
It's available now from River Island for £39.99.
With the return of seventies influence currently spreading like wildfire across high street stores, there's plenty of influences from the era to choose from. Denim's comeback in much more than jeans is evident with pieces like this Denim Button Skirt from Oasis.
The midi skirt has an instantly seventies feel thanks to its almost-knee length hem and a-line shape, with button through fastening at the front. The use of a mid stonewash blue shade keeps things classic and timeless, providing a perfect piece of day-time retro fashion.
It's available now from Oasis for £45.
An affordable slice of 1960s-inspired style, courtesy of the cord a-line shift dress by M&Co.
As the name suggests, this is a cord shift dress with an A-line shape, available in two colour options and with some pocket-like detailing just above the hem.
We did say affordable and in its discounted form, it certainly is. Just £14, with most sizes available.
When looking towards the 20th century for fashion inspiration, consumers and designers alike can often forget the gems that can be found in crossover eras. While fifties and sixties inspired styles are usually very distinct, the pieces which aim for the time in between are often the most intriguing.
This Yellow Button Circle Skirt from River Island utilises elements of fifties style, combined with some sharp 60s updates. The circle skirt is given an update with a shorter hem and matelot buttons, while the high waist and a-line silhouette remain intact. Finished in a chic mustard yellow, this skirt is versatile and instantly retro.
