New in today at Asda and pushing a mod/swinging sixties vibe is this G21 lace front top.
Investing in retro pieces from smaller brands and boutiques is always worthwhile for special occasions. But if you're after an affordable way to carry on a retro look all week, the high street and budget brands are worth your time. This Spot Print Top from George at Asda may not be the highest quality, but its looks certainly belie the pricetag.
As always the Spring/Summer collections of high street retailers has reached us before the sunshine in Britain, with plenty of inspiring choices for that holiday you're considering. This Blue Halterneck Bikini from George at Asda is a great retro choice for the coming months, at the brand's usual bargain prices.
The shape of the two-piece takes obvious inspiration from fifties pinup styles, with a halterneck and twist at the bustline. The full briefs tie the ensemble together, finished in a blue bright enough to stand out among the most tropical of backdrops.

Floral prints have become a perennial choice of retro print, providing a source of inspiration for a variety of twentieth century eras. This Printed Floral Dress from George at Asda uses a sixties interpretation to provide a simple and stylish Spring dress.
The dress structure has an instantly early sixties feel, thanks to the modernised fifties elements like a more structural circle skirt, capped sleeves and a high waistline. The colour palette provides a contrast to the extreme femininity of floral print, avoiding obvious pinks and reds.
Get it from Asda now for a surprisingly thrifty £18.
The shirt dress has become a staple shape for womenswear, spanning many decades of 20th century fashion. Providing a classic interpretation, with flavours of both fifties and some rudegirl style, is this version from George at Asda's G21 line.
The sleeveless shape, tied waist and v neck manage to tread the line between femininity and attitude well, while the deep blue check print keeps things classic. The winged badge detailing at the breast taps into a retro tattoo design, adding a subtle detail that gives a simple style some added vintage inspiration.
It's available now from Asda online and selected shops for £14.
