Mrs Johnson Wiggle Dress by Hell Bunny


There might be a lot of very demure and oftentimes twee retro fashion floating around. There's always something with a decidedly more edgy take on vintage looks to be found, however, thanks to rockabilly and psychobilly brands like Hell Bunny.

This Mrs Johnson Wiggle Dress combines a modern, punky aesthetic with classic fifties inspiration to create an in your face brand of retro clobber. The wiggle dress shape, with its heart-shaped neckline and halter is cute and classic. At the back, the addition of a corset style lace-up adds something more daring, without forgetting the retro roots of the dress.

It's available online from Soho's for £33.99.

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.
