While much vintage-inspired clothing design aims for an on-the-nose copy of their particular era, often a marrying of retro and modern elements can bring a unique appeal. This Mod Tie Back Dress from Judith March takes sixties elements and ties them together with a modern youthfulness, with great effect.
Although the seventies trend that's swept this Summer's high street collections has brought plenty of great vintage inspired designs, there's never anyone quite so en pointe as the original designers. Taking inspiration from the house's original designs, this Cape Back Dress comes from Halston's Heritage line.
In a vibrant shade of coral, the mini dress is elevated beyond the ordinary by chic draping and rich fabric. The cape back design creates a head-turning silhouette, against the simplicity of the sleeveless dress cut.
It's now available in the UK from Matches Fashion for £398.
While some seventies fashion gets a bad rap from fashion circles, the diversity of the decade is often forgotten. One trend that has proven well worthy of reinvention is the disco-era jumpsuit. This Open Back Silk Jumpsuit from ASOS is a luxurious version worthy of a trip to Studio 54's legendary dancefloor.
The loose shape adds an expensive feel, with swathes of fabric that hang with effortless chic in all the right places. The slimline belt adds some much needed shape, while the plunging back flashes enough flesh without loosing the class. A wide leg and muted colours finish off a perfect piece – all that's left is to figure out how to get out.
It's available now from ASOS for £60.
