Red Leopard Print Shift Dress from Topshop


One of the most enduringly appealing aspects of mid-20th century womenswear was the ability to cover everything up and still ooze sex appeal. Fifties inspired looks arguably capture this mood best, with items like this Red Leopard Shift Dress from Topshop displaying that sexy sophistication.

The shift dress shape is simplistic, tailored to create a defined waist and accentuated hips. While a high neckline and knee-length skirt cover up, the use of a racy red leopard print taps into the pin-up aesthetic to create instant retro appeal.

It's available now from Topshop's Edited collection for £46.

Red ceramic kitchen clock

Laura ashley clock

This red ceramic kitchen clock is another retro design courtesy of the high street.

With its asymmetric frame, and striking red finish, it's a design that looks towards the 1950s. Couple that with the minimal clock-face markings and it definitely appears as if it was designed quite a few years before 2011. 

A high street price for it too: the clock costs £30.

Lace Babydoll Dress from Dorothy Perkins


Thanks to the eighties revival of recent years, lace has made its way back into the mainstream of fashion. It's finally being used for a wider variety of looks, delving further into fashion history for inspiration to the 1960s with this Lace Babydoll Dress from Dorothy Perkins.

The dress has an instantly early sixties cut, with three quarter sleeves, a short full skirt and high neckline creating a cutesy retro silhouette that was found on both sides of the pond at the time. The daisy print lace adds a textural edge to the simple cut, finished in a shade of red that's just daring enough to stop this being too girlish.

It's available now from Dorothy Perkins for £42.
