Suede Biker Jacket from Miss Selfridge


Biker jackets for women are a style most often associated with eighties style, but their incorporation into womenswear started with girls way back in the 1950s. Taking inspiration from menswear, more feminine versions were to be found from the sixties onwards.

This Suede Biker Jacket from Miss Selfridge adds a feminine seventies feel to the style, eschewing the usual leather for a deep tan suede fabric. The fitted cut doesn't lose its tough edge, with a side-fastening zip front and wide button down lapels.

You can get yours from Miss Selfridge now for £95.

Sleeveless Shirt Dress from Topshop Petite


When we think of summer dresses it's often florals and bright colours that spring to mind. Just because the weather is brighter, however, doesn't mean more sultry shades are unwelcomed in fashion. Ideally using a very retro shade of brown, this Sleeveless Shirt Dress from Topshop Petite is effortlessly summery.

The sleeveless shirt cut has a subte sixties feel, enhanced by the scalloped Peter Pan collar and button-up front. The lightly cinched waist allows for a sharp silhouette, along with a feminine and flowing skirt shape. The tan brown colour choice is lifted with a white polka dot, while retaining that very sixties shade.

It's available now from Topshop for £32.
