Bird Print Jacket from Miss Selfridge


Tropical style prints, from birds to florals, are most often used to conjure up a fifties style in retro fashion. With just a subtle difference, however, the styling can speak to an entirely different era and aesthetic. This Bird Print Jacket from Miss Selfridge takes its inspiration from a sultry seventies look.

The jacket's flowing fit, with billowing sleeves and a waist-fastening front, helps to create an instant seventies look, with the movement of draped fabric achieving a striking silhouette. The use of ombre pastel shades as a backdrop for the exotic print adds some post-sixties modernity, giving you the option of carrying this item through to an early eighties wardrobe too.

It's available from Miss Selfridge for £40.
