Not a playsuit as you might think on first glance, but this is a matching Paisley Blouse and Shorts by Nishe.
Belted Playsuit from River Island
Perhaps the most unlikely fashion comeback of this year has been the all-in-one, with fifties and sixties playsuits and jumpsuits hitting the rails in almost every high street range. There's still plenty of retro inspiration to be drawn for these pieces, as shown in this seventies style Belted Playsuit from River Island.
Velvet Hot Pants from Missguided
There may be a great variety of retro trends to tap into from the 1970s, but tackling a disco-inspired chic from the era takes a mite of bravery. If you're up to the challenge, you can't go wrong with some vintage-styled hotpants like these Pepper Velvet versions from Missguided.
High Waisted Denim Shorts from Boohoo
The weather across Britain may have taken a turn for the decidedly un-Summery, but that's no reason not to snap up some stylishly retro garb while it's on offer. This pair of Rebecca High Waisted Shorts from Boohoo are the sort of wardrobe staple that no fifties lover should pass up, regardless of season.
The tight fitting shorts have the ideal silhouette for a fifties pin-up chic, with a longer leg and turn-ups balancing the hip-hugging fit. The key to the vintage-look appeal, however, is the extra high waist, featuring matelot buttons for a hint of nautical fifties flair.

Spot Print Playsuit from Oasis
All in one playsuits and jumpsuits were almost impossible to find on the high street or from retro designers just a few years ago, but now they're available in abundance thanks to the ever-expanding influence of vintage fashion on the mainstream.
This Spot Print Jumpsuit from Oasis is a cutesy and easy to wear summer version, basing its style on fifties and sixties looks. The halter neck design ensures a feminine balance to the city shorts style of the bottom, while a mid shade of red adds a classic and luxurious feel.
It's available now from Oasis for £50.
High Waisted Culottes from Lipsy
Culottes are an item that many of us unfondly associate with childhood, remembering some very dubious eighties styles that eventually caused the wide-legged short to disappear for many a year. Thankfully the current crop of high street designers are going further back into fashion history for inspiration, as seen in items like these High Waisted Culottes from Lipsy.
With a light and summery feel, this pair takes inspiration from the 1960s to combine a flowing wide-legged short with a structured high waistline and feminine daisy print fabric. The addition of matelot-style buttons at the waist lends another simple retro element too.
They're now available from Lipsy for £35.
