Britsh Retro Vintage Clothing - 50s Flared Dress

Dee Dee Wedgewood Blue Floral 50s full circle dress

Summer 2019

A flared dress with a floral print as beautiful and delicate as the finest bone china, what could be more perfect for summer 2019? Dee Dee is one of our best-selling flared dresses and we’ve given her a beautiful bloomy twist that taps right into the current trend for vintage floral prints. Dee Dee has the grace and refinement of a classic English tea dress, perfect for vintage tea parties with cucumber sandwiches; a retro flared dress from a more elegant age. Of course, demure Dee Dee isn’t the whole story – take a look at that alluring bateau neckline, cleverly cut to allow a glimpse of bare shoulder and just the perfect amount of décolletage. Dee Dee calls to mind the glamour of 1950s Hollywood starlets, giving you that vintage pin up silhouette we all crave, all thanks to some expert tailoring and a satin-lined, front-boned bodice that delivers the perfect fit.

Flared dresses are a gift to the summer wardrobe, fun and flirty for daytime wear, sophisticated and sleek for an evening ‘do’ or a special occasion. Wear with heels, Converse, ballet pumps, barefoot… Throw on a neat little cardigan for cooler days, or show off sun kissed shoulders in the evening; flared dresses are an asset to any wardrobe, with so many opportunities to ring the changes. Like all British Retro flared dresses, the skirt includes a full circle of material, making it perfect for one of our classic frothy petticoats; choose baby blue or ivory to compliment the elegant Wedgewood blue print and accessorise with a silk scarf and a pair of 1950s cats eye sunglasses. All you need now is a pale blue Sunbeam Alpine and a cloudless sky. Perfect!
