If you’re tired of pulling out the same pastels and florals for summer, make 2019 the year of change. Vintage styles flatter all body shapes and add something unique to your summer wardrobe. With fitted waistlines and flared skirts, Dolly and Dotty vintage dresses can help you achieve a smart and structured look, while keeping cool in the warmer weather.
Dolly and Dotty polka dot vintage dresses feature a structured sweetheart neckline, fully inspired by 50’s swing dresses. The elegancy of the fit and flare silhouette creates a classic pin up girl look, which flatters all body shapes.
Cap sleeves are a popular feature on vintage dresses and modern summer clothing. Many fashion lovers praise them for being more flattering, compared to horizontal short sleeves. They can also help to draw attention to a swing dress’s sweetheart neckline.
With a flirty and retro style, Dolly and Dotty can help to introduce colour, print and fun into your summer wardrobe. Classic polka dot dresses are often black, red and blue for a sophisticated contrast against clean white polka dots. For the full 50’s glam, experiment with different accessories, including cat eye sunglasses, headbands and bold lipsticks.
As well as classic polka dot, Dolly and Dotty feature a range of vibrant prints in their dress collection. From animal to tropical prints, choose a twist on repetitive summer florals.
With more intricate and multi-colour prints, make them the focus of your outfit with minimal accessories. Enjoy being spoilt for choice when choosing a matching lipstick colour!
How to Accessorise
One of the most iconic style elements of the 50s and 60s were hairstyles. To keep your hair from covering your new beautifully designed dress, consider headbands and pin up curls for day-to-day glamour. For an evening look, french twists and dainty pearl necklaces effortlessly help to create a sophisticated, vintage look.
Lots of shoe styles will flatter a midi swing dress. High heels are popular, to support the silhouette of the dress and add height to your look. However, if you are not comfortable in high heels, kitten heels and flat shoes can also work well. Bright white and red shoes are always a top choice for vintage fashionistas.
