Tile Print Shift Dress from Dorothy Perkins


If the nautical fever on the high street is not quite your idea of sixties chic, delving into the rails can still provide many options for retro lovers. This Tile Print Shift Dress from Dorothy Perkins taps into a late sixties interpretation of Eastern influence that carried well into the early seventies folk and hippy scene.

The simple shift shape has become a retro staple, with its simplicity of silhouette and sharp cut allowing bold prints to look timeless. The black border accent adds structure to the pale pink print, while a high neckline and sleeveless cut help to create an instantly sixties body shape.
