British Retro vintage dresses - A Swing Dress in Scarlet and Black

A Swing Dress in Scarlet and Black

Spring 2019

We believe everyone can possess the glamour and style of a 1950s movie star, it just takes the right dress… and may we present the right dress?

Actually, make that the perfect dress, a full circle vintage style gown that is the very essence of sophistication. Richly printed fabric in an eye-catching scarlet and black poppy print, a generous, full circle skirt, satin-lined tailored bodice and that iconic Bardot-shaped neckline… it could only be our ever-popular Dee Dee 1950s retro style swing dress. We know how much you all adore Dee Dee, so don’t blame us for fanning those flames higher with this gorgeous poppy print edition, brand new for SS19.

This could be the dress that defines your summer, ideal for weekends away, weddings, parties and your two weeks in the sun. Wear with flats and a neat cardigan, wear with DMs and a cheeky grin, wear with heels and your best lippie, Dee Dee is easy to dress up or down. We’ve left out the belt loops, so you can wear the dress with or without the matching 2” belt. Add one of our classic rockabilly style frothy petticoats to make the most of that full-circle dress skirt, or wear without for an elegant, flowing line. A really good vintage swing dress is a great addition to any wardrobe, and we’ve based our Dee Dee design on a 1950s original for a fantastic authentic look that is surely the most flattering flared dress you’ll ever own.

Here at British Retro we make all our wonderful dresses in small numbers so you’ll never turn up and find another girl rocking your 50s pinup vibe! But, when they’re gone they’re gone, so get ‘em while they’re hot.
