Knit Pencil Skirt from American Apparel


There's nothing like the figure-enhancing fit of a wiggle dress or pencil skirt for a killer retro look. Capturing the vampy silhouettes of the fifties and sixties, it can be a challenge to find your ideal fit. This Knit Pencil Skirt from American Apparel promises that same look for all shapes thanks to the curve-hugging fabric.

Available in three shades of camel, pink and mauve, the skirt uses a blended rayon fabric – made to hug your shape without feeling restrictive. The fabric's flat knit prevents the skirt from looking knitted, allowing no compromise to the vintage inspired appearance.

It's available now from American Apparel in the UK for £42.

Katrina Paradise Dress from Heartbreaker Fashion


With one of the keenest eyes for retro chic out there, Heartbreaker Fashion has become something of a favourite of ours. This Paradise Dress is the perfect example of why, with stunning vintage inspired looks, great construction and a reasonably affordable price tag.

Shown here in the Katrina print fabric, the dress has an irresistible 50s pin-up vibe, combining a Hollywood glamour with Hawaiin take on exotica. The result is a dress that clings that curves to create a bombshell silhouette, while the sarong ties at the waist and shoulder mean this is a lot easier to wear than it looks.

Stripe Vest Dress by Miss Selfridge


Thanks to a return of nautical influence on the high street, horizontal stripes are in abundance in current womenswear. While they may not be the easiest print to wear for some, they are often a fast and easy way to a retro look in your wardrobe, just as with this Stripe Vest Dress from Miss Selfridge.

The black and white stripes eschew a stereotypical nautical colour choice of navy, while the red oversized bow ties in with the theme without looking clichéd. With a figure-hugging cut this dress draws on a fifties wiggle shape, giving it an extra retro dimension with an eighties-look ruffled hemline.
