When tackling retro looks the high street can often shy away from braver vintage inspiration, but once in a while a risk is taken in just the right way. This Clown Collar Blouse from ASOS may not be for everyone, but with its chic sixties feel it's well worth a look for lovers of the era.
A great shirt or blouse is a wardrobe staple you'll find yourself wearing with everything, but finding the one that suits you perfectly can be a difficult task. For something a little less ordinary, this Mustard Frill Collar Shirt from Miss Selfridge has a nice hint of sixties cool.
While much of the high street's latest collections have moved away from retro influence, there are still some unusual pieces to be found that will satisfy. This Lace Collar Top from Miss Selfridge provides something a little out of the ordinary, with some thirties style design points.
The drop waist is an immediately 1930s cut, while the collar and colouring are reminiscent of a pierrot style outfit (without looking like a full blown costume). The overall effect, with lace details and sleeveless cut, provides a top that could also pass well in most sixties wardrobes, adding an unusual retro piece to any wardrobe.
It's available now from Miss Selfridge for £28.
