Often when the high street attempts to interpret the more psychedelic vein of sixties fashion, the result can be an overblown and cartoonish image. With a more Autumnal colour palette and some simplistic styling, however, Matalan have managed to create a more chic image in this Heraldic Print Shift Dress.
These clover coasters from Pryl design are almost too eyecatching for resting your cup of tea on.
Designed by Julia Nielsen for the Swedish company, the classic four leaf clover is transformed into a psychedelic design which looks like it has been drawn from the late 1960s, rather than 2011. The clover design comes in three eye-popping colours, all printed onto triangular laminated birchwood – perfect for cheering up a dull table or desktop.
A set of three costs £12.

Remember the Joy Division colouring book? Of course you do. Well, the people behind that effort (Piper Gates Design) have produced a second instalment of what's being called the 'doomed poet' series with the Syd Barrett colouring book.
Yes, that's right, you can spend the cold winter evenings adding some colour to images of the Madcap Syd and the 60s-era Pink Floyd line-up. There's a four-page cover and eight pages of colouring fun, as well as a free Arnold Layne 7-inch sleeve, which can also be coloured in.
Each copy is signed by the artist and the run is limited to just 45 copies. Grab one via eBay while you can, each one is available on a 'Buy It Now' for £15.99. Perfect Christmas gift fodder. Another image over the page.
Whilst the circular pattern in the steel and white clock hands do not make this the easiest for reading the time from, it does create a pleasingly psychedelic effect.
The clock measures 30cm in diameter and costs £60 from Dot Maison.
Luxury designer brand Pucci have long been known for their modern reinterpretations of psychedelic style prints. Now you can own some of that eye-popping style for a fraction of the price, thanks to this Pucci inspired Dress from Dorothy Perkins.
The print's swirling petal pattern is instantly psychedelic thanks to its bold and bright colour palette. With a folky border print, the mini dress has many sixties-look touches like a high neckline and three quarter sleeves. A tighter skirt adds some modernity, without compromising the retro appeal.
It's available now from Dorothy Perkins for £29.
Elements of psychedelic sixties fashion don't often appear in high end brands, but when they do it can often mean something special. This Vittoria Dress by Erdem comes from a design house at the topmost of fashion luxury, and has an unmistakeable sixties feeling.
The A-line cut makes for a very convincing mid-decade silhouette, with a high neckline, slim sleeves and slightly shaped waist. The rounded hemline and above the knee cut finish off the simplistic shape, allowing a kaleidoscope style print and colour choices to shine.
It's available now from Browns for £1215.
