There's always plenty of choice out there for fifties lovers who favour dresses and skirts, but for a more relaxed take on the era's style it can be a trickier shopping trip. That's what makes these High-Waist Jeans from American Apparel worth a look, with a classic shape that you'll want to pair with everything.
With all your decadent retro evening wear being catered for by many retro brands and high street stores alike, it's often a harder task to track down items for a more casual, every day look. Thankfully the seventies trend offers many options, like these Twill Wide Leg Pants from American Apparel.
The trousers' shape has an instant shot of seventies inspiration thanks to the combination of a wide flared leg, starting at the knee, and a high rise waist too. Made from a stretch twill instead of denim, they're ideal for warmer days and promise a more snug fit too.
Available in three colour choices, they're now at American Apparel UK for £72.
While the Winter months draw to a close, there's still a chill in the air for most of us through Spring. That's good enough excuse to indulge in some snug outerwear shopping, with this Wool Cape from American Apparel providing the perfect option.
The cape's structure has an instantly sixties feel, with a wide a-line shape and high collar. In a rich navy wool fabric, it's reminiscent of The Beatles' classic Help capes. The cape's androgyny lends itself well to a mid-sixties aesthetic with a short mid-thigh hemline that can create daring femininity.

There's nothing like the figure-enhancing fit of a wiggle dress or pencil skirt for a killer retro look. Capturing the vampy silhouettes of the fifties and sixties, it can be a challenge to find your ideal fit. This Knit Pencil Skirt from American Apparel promises that same look for all shapes thanks to the curve-hugging fabric.
Available in three shades of camel, pink and mauve, the skirt uses a blended rayon fabric – made to hug your shape without feeling restrictive. The fabric's flat knit prevents the skirt from looking knitted, allowing no compromise to the vintage inspired appearance.
It's available now from American Apparel in the UK for £42.
