60s Ponte Dress from Oasis
Now that the madness of January sales is almost over, interest can turn to what the high street's new lines have to offer in vintage inspiration. While there's no sign of much that's new just yet, some classic pieces like this 60s Ponte Dress from Oasis are worthy of attention.
In a striking and rich red shade, the colour carries a basic sixties look dress that's appealingly simple. The empire cut a-line skirt creates a great retro silhouette, while buttons and a peter pan collar give some cute details to balance the daringly short hemline. In a short sleeve, this dress is an ideal choice to transition out of your winter wardrobe.

Colourblock Ponte Dress from Dorothy Perkins
With every batch of new Christmas frocks in the shops it's beading and sequins that we see most of all. For something a little more subtle and classic, this Colourblock Ponte Dress from Dorothy Perkins is an ideal choice.
Using blocking to create a decidedly sixties inspired pattern, the dress' shape follows that inspiration too. A large, flared sleeve compliments the high neckline and shorter hemline to create a shape that's structured and striking. Finished in a muted mocha shade, this dress has a timeless appeal.
It's available now from Dorothy Perkins for £36.
