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.
The clean and respectable A-line look has slickly crept into shop windows and, before we know it, our shopping lists. Flattering pencil skirts and drain pipe trousers are also filling the shop windows.
Take a look at these outfits to style the combination of your own.
