Tribal Paisley Kimono from Wallis


As the high street moves towards plenty of seventies influence, there's many different looks to plunder for inspiration. This Tribal Paisley Kimono from Wallis taps into a late sixties/early seventies aesthetic, drawing from both tribal and eastern influences popular at the time.

The loose kimono cut creates an instantly seventies silhouette, with a deep v neckline and large batwing sleeves. The orange tribal paisley print takes inspiration from a later sixties hippy style, meshing influences of British and global fashion styles.

Black Lace Gathered Dress from Wallis


We often associate black lace in retro fashion with an eighties aesthetic nowadays, but used with subtlety it's a fabric that can lend itself to a wide variety of vintage inspired looks. This Black Lace Gathered Dress from Wallis is one that takes inspiration from many eras, providing a look that's classic yet headturning.

The delicate, loose cut of the capped sleeves is a truly feminine chic, reminiscent of a twenties and thirties look. Meanwhile, the gathered waist and plunging v-neck are more modern, combining some fifties and seventies elements to the silhouette. While meshing vintage inspiration can often be messy, this dress stays subtle and wearable.

It's available from Wallis for £65.
