It's almost the season where the shops get overloaded with racks of sequins and sparkles. For a classier retro (but still sequined) alternative to the usual festive fare, check out Jaeger Boutique's floral sequin neck dress.
This season's high street ranges promise plenty of 1920s influence in time for the usual glitz of Winterwear, providing an ideal choice in eveningwear for retro lovers everywhere. This Sequin Cami Top from New Look has a strong twenties aesthetic without falling for the same old clichés.
While seventies fashion is the order of the day for most of this Summer's high street designs, there's still plenty of alternative vintage influence available for those willing to do some digging. This Embellished Vest Dress from Miss Selfridge offers an unmistakeable flapper style that doesn't fall for the usual clichés.
The drop waisted, loose dress shape is ideal for creating that twenties and thirties androgynous silhouette. With a vest-sleeve to provide some daring flesh on show, the nude pink tone is an ideal base for the sparkling embellishment that takes art deco lines as its inspiration.

Since the resurgence of maxi dresses on the high street some years ago, the offerings have been largely casual and summery. Tapping into a more glamourous aesthetic, this Ivalyn Sequin Dress from Missguided provides a different retro influence for your Christmas wardrobe.
The simple shape and cut of the dress allows accessories to adapt it into a variety of retro looks, from a high glam 50s Hollywood look to a late seventies chic. The strapless cut shows just enough flesh to contrast the long skirt, while black sequins provide a sparkle without the expense of beading.
It's available online from Missguided for £44.99.
