With these lovely cream retro polka dot bow shorts, it would have been easy to create a cute pinup look with just a black or red top. Today, I chose to team it with a slightly unexpected colour – a light purple. The top is silk and its ruffles add a soft, feminine touch. I then added a pair of adorable vintage-inspired peacock earrings, a soft, slouchy black bag, and a pair of retro-inspired pumps, in pink for a splash of colour.

Please excuse the terrible pun, but I couldn’t help myself after all the ooh-ing and aah-ing sounds I made looking at Miss Selfridges’ excellent range of shorts. There’s a little bit of everything from denim hotpants to retro high-waisted shorts in a wide range of colours and prints – animal, polka dots, flowers, stripes. And lots and lots of bows! So whether you want to rock a retro pin-up look or tap into nautical, utility or rock chick trends, I’d recommend you take a look at the following little numbers.

Yes, I know, this is not a Spring/Summer post. It’s been raining a lot and the weather has gone back to cold, so I feel like this is more appropriate. Anyway, moving on…Houndstooth is a great classic print, but it can quite easily make a look dated, especially if it is teamed with tweed or wool. So if you want to avoid this, yet take advantage of the print’s instant chic appeal, I recommend you look for a modern take on the working wardrobe staple—be it with a slightly altered print or new colours and textures.
For example, these pieces from Jaeger have got it all right. The dress is not only red and white instead of the traditional white and black, but it also made of silk, and the pattern is slightly altered. It looks feminine, chic, modern and professional.
This bag works because it’s in shiny PVC. I’m always a fan of printed accessories—they make a simple outfit instantly look chic. And this bag would look great with a black dress and houndstooth-print shoes.
Coral and White Houndstooth Silk Dress by Jaeger £225 now £149
The bag isn’t available online anymore, but you might be lucky if you visit one of the many Jaeger stores.

How ridiculously cute is this frilly polka dot umbrella? By now I think I’ve made it pretty clear how much I love polka dots, so I think it’s obvious why this piece caught my attention! I also really like the frilly, contrasting hem and the retro shape. Its neutral colour scheme should also ensure that it goes with most of your clothes. From Topshop, £15.
