Off Shoulder Knit Dress by Christian Dior


The big brands love to jump the gun on seasons, but every so often there's a piece that bears buying well in advance. This Off Shoulder Knit Dress by Christian Dior might not get a run out until the Autumn, but with looks like these it's certainly worth talking about.

Channelling a classic Dior look from the late fifties and early sixties, the dress has all the femininity and sharp sex appeal of early Dior designs. The off shoulder neckline shows just enough flesh to counterbalance the formality of the pencil skirt and professional bodice design. With a high, defined waist it creates those killer vintage curves you can't deny.

Bow Neck Jacket by Christian Dior


Classic suiting and tailored items are very much the order of the day in women's retro fashion, thanks in large part to the popularity of Mad Men. Thankfully this means many more truly vintage inspired pieces for all of us, like this Bow Neck Jacket from Christian Dior.

This jacket's exceptional tailoring and structure have an instantly late fifties/early sixties impact. The ideal choice of outerwear for either a sharp work environment or a special social event, this is one of few designer pieces that will really belong in (and out of) your wardrobe for years to come.

Made from 100% wool, it'll set you back £1300 from Browns.
