Winter is definitely here and you may well be thinking of getting a new coat or two. One worth looking at is this new addition at Peacocks. It's a double breasted 60s-style collarless coat. While that may seem impractical at this time of year, you can couple it up with your favourite scarf and not worry about it fighting for space around your neck.
The continuing popularity of maxi dress shapes in high street summer collections is great news for lovers of retro fashion, with many pieces relying on a seventies aesthetic as inspiration. This Tribal Halter Dress from Peacocks captures that mood in a piece that's surprisingly affordable.
The use of a halter neckline adds some sex appeal to the loose maxi fit of the dress, ensuring the busy fabric doesn't swallow your frame. With a print that displays obvious African influence, the colour palette too points towards the sixties and seventies affection for exotic influence throughout fashion.
It's now available from Peacocks for £28.
The seventies revival on the high street is continuing to throw out some great pieces of retro design, with the midi skirt making a surprising return to the mainstream. This Stripe Skirt from Peacocks has a relaxed seventies style that's ideal for every day wear.
The print truly makes this item, using a graphic diagonal stripe that will accentuate the hips to create a vintage-look silhouette. The colour palette has an instantly retro feel, too, using a rich brown and burnt orange. The addition of a white background allows for a great balance between the darker shades and the skirt's light and summery style.

Very much the warm weather dress (so perfect for the current mini-heatwave), it's a fairly short number with capped sleeves, zip back fastening and that large button detailing on the front.
It's an online exclusive, available only in the turquoise colour and in sizes 8 to 16. £30 is the price.
Each time the Summer season rolls around on the high street, sun dresses inspired by a variety of eras hit the rails. Fifties inspiration is always a popular option, thanks to the decade's use of feminine and flowing silhouettes.
This Spotty Dress from Peacocks' By Design range takes a late fifties/early sixties aesthetic and keeps thigns simple and classic. The sleeveless bodice balances out a full pleated skirt, carrying the large polka dot pattern with ease. Finishing touches like a vintage-look brooch and ribbon waist add sparkle without making this piece too dressy for the sunshine.
It's available now from Peacocks for £35.
