Poppy Print Circle Skirt from Dorothy Perkins

Poppyskirt

Much of the fifties looks available from reproduction brands and the high street of late have erred on the side of structural, vampish looks. If rockabilly style isn't for you, a more traditionally fifties look can be achieved with items like this Poppy Print Skirt from Dorothy Perkins.

The circle skirt style is given a softer edge with the use of a flowing cotton fabric, eschewing the heavily structured alternatives. The poppy print utilises the floral trend without falling for cliché, and adds impact with its colour palette too. Finished with a long hemline, this skirt is ideal for a more conservative and classic fifties inspired wardrobe.

It's available now from Dorothy Perkins for £30.

Embellished Collar Dress from Miss Selfridge

Embellishedcollar

Among the many sharp, mod inspired sixties pieces available at the moment, there is still plenty of room for a more dreamy and ethereal silhouette in a vintage look wardrobe. Still clearly retaining that sixties influence, this Embellished Collar Dress from Miss Selfridge offers a more girly retro aesthetic.

The chiffon fabric creates a great bell sleeve look, enhanced by the accented cuffs to match the collar. The neckline and peephole detailing at the collar are the key to the dress's retro appeal, however, adding some subtle impact to a dress that's feminine without being over the top.

It's available now from Miss Selfridge for £50.
