Pink Spats-style Flats from ModCloth
Spats style shoes and brogues may have been a mainstay of menswear in the early 20th century, but this decade has seen their impact on footwear for both genders. Skewing heavily towards a feminine interpretation, these Delightful Dress-Up Flats from ModCloth are a very cute version.
Stina Spot Neck Jumper from Monsoon
Finding the more everyday options for a fully dedicated retro wardrobe can often be the most difficult, with the myriad options for eveningwear now available. If you're after the ideal accompaniment for your capri pants or pencil skirt for the daytime, this Stina Jumper from Monsoon could be a contender.
The simple and chic slim knit of the jumper is only enhanced by a scoop neck to add some of the fifties' signature sex appeal. The addition of a polka dot ribbon detail and bow at the neckline creates an instantly vintage inspired look, without being too over the top for every day wear.

Stripe Vest Dress by Miss Selfridge
Thanks to a return of nautical influence on the high street, horizontal stripes are in abundance in current womenswear. While they may not be the easiest print to wear for some, they are often a fast and easy way to a retro look in your wardrobe, just as with this Stripe Vest Dress from Miss Selfridge.
The black and white stripes eschew a stereotypical nautical colour choice of navy, while the red oversized bow ties in with the theme without looking clichéd. With a figure-hugging cut this dress draws on a fifties wiggle shape, giving it an extra retro dimension with an eighties-look ruffled hemline.
