High Waisted Culottes from Lipsy


Culottes are an item that many of us unfondly associate with childhood, remembering some very dubious eighties styles that eventually caused the wide-legged short to disappear for many a year. Thankfully the current crop of high street designers are going further back into fashion history for inspiration, as seen in items like these High Waisted Culottes from Lipsy.

With a light and summery feel, this pair takes inspiration from the 1960s to combine a flowing wide-legged short with a structured high waistline and feminine daisy print fabric. The addition of matelot-style buttons at the waist lends another simple retro element too.

They're now available from Lipsy for £35.

Nadine Polka Dot Shorts from Boohoo


Mini skirts are dresses are always the first choice for sixties looks, among both shoppers and sellers alike. For something a little more unusual, these Nadine Polka Dot Shorts from Boohoo provide an interesting clash of both sixties and eighties styles.

Using a culotte style short instead of the skirt, the high waisted shorts rely on a sixties aesthetic for the silhouette and print choices. With the conversion into loose and wide-legged shorts, they're reminiscent of the 1980s' love for reinvention of retro eras, providing a piece that's adaptable and interesting for a range of retro looks.

They're available now from Boohoo online for just £12.
