The lasting and irresistible appeal of 1950s fashion is undeniable.

The appearance of polka dot prints has become a perennial style. From classical full-length coats to dresses and now scarves, the popular pattern features widely in many high street chains.

Take a look at these outfits to style the combination of your own.
