Jet Pocket Shirt from Dorothy Perkins


Much of the fifties reproduction fashion available both in the mainstream and from dedicated retro brands leans heavily on a hyper feminine look. But from the decade that truly brought menswear into womens fashion there's plenty of untapped influences to be explored.

This Jet Pocket Shirt from Dorothy Perkins is a great fifties-styled piece that manages to combine a masculine influence with some feminine flair. The use of a bowling/diner style collar and pocket detailing creates an instantly rockabilly mood, with the sleeveless cut and loose fit keeping things just androgynous enough.

It's available from Dorothy Perkins for £20.

Wool Check Dress from Marks and Spencer


The chic, sharp lines of sixties style are usually found among the high street's Spring and Summer lines, but enough digging can produce great Winter options. This Wool Rich Check Dress from the Autograph Weekend line at Marks and Spencer combines all the structure of a retro look with practical fabric for the colder months.

Ideal for both mid-sixties mod or later ska styles, the check pattern is classic and subtle, with contrasting diagonal check pockets for accent. The high neckline, t-shirt sleeves and mid thigh hemline combine to create a sharp style that's countered by a loose sixties fit.

Retaining all the timeless style and refinement of the vintage menswear versions, the watch itself includes an etched filigree cover with a colour scheme of vintage look silver and gold throughout.
