I know it’s not really t-shirt weather (and that’s an understatement), but if you are planning ahead or spend a lot of time indoors, then you might like to know that this 1970s Batwing logo t-shirt has been reissued by Levi's Vintage Clothing.
The Autumnal weather's arrival can be a bit of a downer for many of us, but when it comes to fashion purchases it brings a whole new excuse to spoil yourself. The colder months bring many more retro options, with great knitwear like this Ped X-ing Sweater from ModCloth tapping into a great vintage look.
Continuing the high street's current love affair with seventies looks, the decade's unique mixture of hippy influence and decadent chic is providing the latest inspiration. This Zig Zag Print Top from Oasis treads the line between both those influences with ease.
With artfully draped loose fabric, the silhouette is instantly seventies thanks to a batwing style square cut. The mixture of floral prints and earthy colours adds a post-sixties folk style to a top that's versatile and stylish.
It's available from Oasis now for £26.
While the 1960s was all about sharp tailoring and structure, it was the seventies that saw a boost in creative draping and full fabrics from designers like Halston and the disco era looks. That was a trend that carried well into the 1980s, with looks much like this Slash Neck Dress from ASOS proving ever popular.
The use of stretch knitted fabric allows for seventies style draping in the batwing top to be perfectly counterbalanced by the sexier eighties sensibilities of the tight skirt and sleeves. The result is a dress that's vampish and glamorous, without being garish or clichéd. The colour options finish off the eighties feel, in dark coral pink and power blue.

Finding knitwear for warmer months can be difficult, with the British weather flitting between extremes. This Summer Ranch Knit Batwing Top from French Connection is an ideal choice, with some true retro appeal thrown in to boot.
The loose, light fit of the top adds to the eighties style batwing cut, with a delicate and light woolen fabric. The bright rainbow shades add some spunk, while the v-neck cut adds some much needed femininity to the oversized eighties cut.
Get it from French Connection UK for £88 in the sale.
