Short Cross Front Dress by Issa


Arguably the seventies' most enduring dress style was the wrap dress, a style invented by Diane von Furstenberg that became a lasting wardrobe staple across decades. This Short Cross Front Dress by Issa provides a stylish take on the style, using stylish retro simplicity.

The wrap front section is given a unique flavour thanks to the gathered draping, creating texture and shape without detracting from the elegance of the dress. With the original deep v-neck and a mid-thigh hemline, the bright red shade manages to be vampish without a hint of tacky.

It's available online in the UK for £480 from Matches Fashion.

Hollie Cord Shorts from Boohoo


Cord is one of few retro fabrics that has never quite left the shop floor, mostly taking the shape of flared trousers and even home furnishings. That said, it's never quite lost its sixties and seventies look, especially in pieces like these Hollie Cord Shorts from Boohoo.

The cut of the shorts adds to the vintage look, with a high waist, loose fitting legs and a rolled hem. The colour choices, from stone to black, keep the seventies look going, especially when paired with opaque tights and stacked platform wedges.

Get them online from Boohoo now for just £15.

Short Duffle Coat from Miss Selfridge


Duffle coats have become an undeniably classic wardrobe staple for both men and women, providing the perfect coat for everyday wear in the chillier months. This short version from Miss Selfridge provides a great option for those who months when full length is just too far.

Utilising the standard duffle fastenings, the coat's shape also leans on a sixties aesthetic, with a swing style silhouette. The A-line shape is ideally complimented by ruffled shoulders for added femininity, while the hood is both practical and appealing.

It's available now from Miss Selfridge for £50.

Mikkel Rude 60s-style shirts – new range now available


We're quite keen on Mikkel Rude shirts. Not least because of their excellent fit, great choice of cloths and the ability to stay looking good after a few washes. If you fancy giving them a try, the new range is now available, some of which are pictured here and over the page.

The fit, cut and design are essentially the same, a classic 60s-style button down with fairly high button-down collar, slim fit, box pleat, button sleeve and single breast pocket. Although this year, there are also some long sleeves in the range, as well as some plain colours.

Check out many more pictures over the page. You can buy the new shirts at Oi Polloi in Manchester, American Classics in London, Storm in Copenhagen and Martin C. in Paris, as well as online at the Mikkel Rude website, although the new designs don't seem to be selling on line just yet (keep checking). Prices are around the £65 mark.
