If you are on the hint for a winter coat, check out this 1950s Gloverall Anniversary Check Duffle Coat.
The high street does the 1960s, with this black and white check shell top from River Island.
It's often tempting to shy away from bold colours when buying a heavy coat, opting for neutrals to wear with everything. For truly vintage-inspired looks, however, an injection of the right colour palette can be the most effective choice. This Double Breasted Plaid Coat by designers Tulle is anything but dull, yet still manages to keep an edge of classic design.
While chic and subtle nude shades made up much of fashion's retro fodder in 2010, many brands are bringing colour back into our wardrobes with style. This Bright Stuff Dress from ModCloth provides a vintage inspired dress that's ideal for Spring and Summer days.
The simple short sleeves and mid-hemline cut are given some femininity and retro chic with the red belt and matching Peter Pan collar. With a primary coloured plaid check, the dress takes fifties and sixties inspiration without going over the top.
It's available now from ModCloth for $64.99.
Like many budget clothing stores in the UK, Matalan's latest womenswear output has taken the brand from functional to fashionable for all consumers. This Sleeveless Houndstooth Dress displays their newly found eye for style, with a sixties influenced dress for less.
The sleeveless a-line shape provides the basis for a great mod look, while the monochrome houndstooth print is sharp and chic. The addition of black trim at the pockets and peter pan collar adds some structure and effortless mid-sixties feel.
Get it now from Matalan for only £18.
