Retro Outfit Under £60

Bargain Hunter Budget Retro Pin-Up Outfit under £60

You will recognise the Retro Floral Crop Shirt from one of our previous Bargain Hunter posts. If not, I am really surprised as it is so perfectly retro and cute that I’ve been dreaming up ways of wearing it ever since I first laid eyes upon it, and here’s a simple way of using it to put together a cute little retro-inspired outfit. Just add rockabilly hair and big make-up to go full pin-up.

July Challenge of the Month – Look 7

Ecclectic Print Mix Look by Clothes, Clothes, Clothes! Challenge of the Month

To finish this month’s challenge of the month, an outfit based on the Petites Utility Mink Washed Shorts. This is quite possibly the most ambitious look as it is quite ecclectic and mixes different trends. As mentioned before, I like to team very feminine tops with utility pants and shorts, so I picked a beautiful lace print tank by Oasis –  bang on the underwear as outwerwear trend. Then came the nautical sandals by Dune in the same colours, and the rest of the accessories by Accessorize. The bag needed to be simple to tie in the outfit or it would have been too busy.

Although it shouldn’t, this outfit works as it’s kept within the same colour scheme (silvers, cream and navy blue) and all the pieces rock the same casual, feminine vibe.

Modern Retro Vintage Look by Clothes Clothes Clothes! Challenge of the Month

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.

Lady Who Lunches Dressy Day Look by Clothes, Clothes, Clothes! Challenge of the Month

For the fourth look of our Challenge of the Month, I decided to focus on the khaki herringbone tie shorts– I love  the utility trend and how easy to put a comfortable, casual outfit together with them.

However, I also like to break down the (relative) strictness and masculinity of utility pieces by combining them with very feminine touches. A favourite trick of mine is to pair a khaki pair of shorts or cargo pants with a soft pink top, frilly if possible – like the silk pink wrap top by Coast I featured a few days ago. A few chosen accessories complement the look to create a dressy day outfit, perfect for a lunch with the girls and a shopping session.

Cute Feminine Casual Summer Look by Clothes, Clothes, Clothes! Challenge of the Month

There is a lot going on with this pair of shorts – big pockets, turned up hems, stripes, and a big bow! – so I chose to go for simple pieces to compliment it. There was also the issue of it being described as Mint Ticking Bow Stripe Shorts on the Miss Selfridge website – surely “mint” means green, but they look pretty grey to me! So just to be on the safe side, I chose a colour palette that would flatter either colour.

I started by adding a simple white vest but to keep things interesting, chose one with some subtle embellishment – the macrame detailing teamed with the braided straps of the gladiator sandals help create a bit of a relaxed bohemian feel, and so I decided to push it a little further by adding accessories that clearly take their inspiration from India. The result is a cute, feminine, casual summer look that will look great against a tan.

Exotic Jet Set St Tropez Look by Clothes Clothes Clothes! Challenge of the Month

So much can be done with Denim Jeans Shorts – they are really versatile and should be a staple in everyone’s summer wardrobe. I chose to dress them up for effortless summer chic with exotic pieces and a pair of gorgeous strapped sandals (which I looove). Can’t you picture yourself wearing this drinking cocktails in a little Riviera café?
