Yellow Short Circle Skirt from River Island


When looking towards the 20th century for fashion inspiration, consumers and designers alike can often forget the gems that can be found in crossover eras. While fifties and sixties inspired styles are usually very distinct, the pieces which aim for the time in between are often the most intriguing.

This Yellow Button Circle Skirt from River Island utilises elements of fifties style, combined with some sharp 60s updates. The circle skirt is given an update with a shorter hem and matelot buttons, while the high waist and a-line silhouette remain intact. Finished in a chic mustard yellow, this skirt is versatile and instantly retro.
