Colourful Striped Retro Dress

Dresses/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

Antoni and Alison colurful striped dress

Shift dresses in A-Line are really trendy this summer and most flattering for all body types. Team them with bright colours for a happy summery feeling! I love the The Antoni and Alison dress I am wearing in primary colours. I paired it with red sunglasses from Versace and a straw bag from Misako. I simple cute bag that won’t steal the show of the colourful dress. In case you’re wondering, the turquoise nail varnish on my feet is “Nouvelle Vague” from Chanel.

Horizontal stripes can make you look bigger so team them with heels to lengthen your silhouette. My excuse for not wearing heels is that I’m on holiday. Nude, pointy flats are great to make your legs look longer. Shoes from BCBG.

Retro Vichy Capri Pants


Retro, Retro, Retro and no end in sight! Louis Vuitton showed 40s checked menswear, babydoll dresses and princess coats on the runway for Autumn 2012. Moschino played with 50s lace, pencil skirts and cropped capri pants for their autumn 2013 collection.

Cropped Capri pants, whose name derives from the Italian island of Capri,  become popular in the late 50s. They are playful and sexy, show off your shoes and never go out of fashion. In fact, they are an all year round staple for Italians, hence the name “Italian length” – which means the trousers end just above your ankle.

Combine the capri pants classically like Brigitte Bardot did with ballet pumps: I’m wearing  black and white vichy checked capri pants with Pretty Ballerinas and a Stefanel trenchcoat.

Go Retro full blast and combine capri pants with 50s kitten heels. I’m wearing a  silk blouse with Peter Pan collar from H&M, Bouclé  box jacket from TK Maxx, kitten heels from Logan. Retro sunglasses from Chloé.
