Bonnie Bustier Bikini with Shorts by Jemma Jube


Australian swimwear label Jemma Jube is inspired by superheroes and super vixens; tough talking ladies who flaunt their curves but can more than hold their own in a man's world.

The Bonnie Bikini takes a classic retro shape and cuts it to flatter – accentuating the bust with an underwired balconette bustier and slimming the stomach and hips with super-high-waisted shorts. It's a sexy look that keeps you covered and combines the style of vintage swimwear with modern fabrics that work to conceal and enhance your figure in all the right places.

Safari style Playsuit from River Island


Many of the playsuit styles inspiring the high street over the past few seasons have relied heavily on fifties influence, but there's plenty of room for sixties and seventies interpretations of the piece. This Smart Camel Playsuit from River Island provides that option with classic chic.

The safari influence on the style provides an ideally sharp and structural element, in keeping with later sixties and early seventies looks. The high waistline, wide leg shorts and gold hardware combine to create a perfect silhouette, while the dark camel shade keeps things classic and timeless.

Nadine Polka Dot Shorts from Boohoo


Mini skirts are dresses are always the first choice for sixties looks, among both shoppers and sellers alike. For something a little more unusual, these Nadine Polka Dot Shorts from Boohoo provide an interesting clash of both sixties and eighties styles.

Using a culotte style short instead of the skirt, the high waisted shorts rely on a sixties aesthetic for the silhouette and print choices. With the conversion into loose and wide-legged shorts, they're reminiscent of the 1980s' love for reinvention of retro eras, providing a piece that's adaptable and interesting for a range of retro looks.

They're available now from Boohoo online for just £12.

Pippa Denim Jumpsuit from French Connection


While denim has been a perennial fabric found in mens and womens wardrobes for decades, there are still some pieces which manage to retain an unmistakeable retro style. This Pippa Denim Jumpsuit from French Connection is a simple style that has an easy-going touch of seventies style.

Imitating the decade that loved to take denim beyond jeans, this shirt and shorts combo jumpsuit treads the line between toughness and cowgirlish femininity well. The stonewash shade, too, has a real early seventies feel that begs for some brown leather accompaniments.

Get it from French Connection now for £65.

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.
