The welcome return of the cape to mainstream outerwear ranges has mainly focused on a mid-sixties interpretation. Channeling a later style, this Lilly Faux Fur Cape from Boohoo brings a cool crossover from sixties to seventies inspiration.
For a chic and timeless retro look there's nothing quite as effective as monochrome, mixing sharp lines with graphic contrasting shades. This Kiara Crepe Georgette Blouse from Boohoo stylishly combines a variety of fabric textures in a simple piece that's truly versatile.
The weather across Britain may have taken a turn for the decidedly un-Summery, but that's no reason not to snap up some stylishly retro garb while it's on offer. This pair of Rebecca High Waisted Shorts from Boohoo are the sort of wardrobe staple that no fifties lover should pass up, regardless of season.
The tight fitting shorts have the ideal silhouette for a fifties pin-up chic, with a longer leg and turn-ups balancing the hip-hugging fit. The key to the vintage-look appeal, however, is the extra high waist, featuring matelot buttons for a hint of nautical fifties flair.

As skinny legged trousers fall back out of favour with mainstream fashion, designers have gone in the opposite direction in this season's fit. Both fifties and seventies style wide-legged trousers are popping up everywhere, with these Floral Print Palazzo Trousers from Boohoo offering something for the braver retro lovers out there.
The palazzo cut is heavily seventies influenced, with a high waistline and loose wide-leg the silhouette is ideal for the luxurious and flowing feel of seventies Riviera style. The bold floral print, while not for the faint of heart, recalls the decadent feel of the mainstream taste of the time.
They're now available online from Boohoo for £20.
The shift dress may well have become a timeless cut that each decade can make its own, but there's little argument that the sixties did it best. That might explain why many modern designs rely on a sixties inspiration, like this Sunflower Shift Dress from Boohoo.
The use of florals has the cute and quirky feel of mid-sixties design, without plumping for the more obvious choices like daisy print. While the shift shape is simplistic, the mini hemline and lace insert keep the retro influence at the forefront.
