The Vintage Glossy: Retro Spring Style on the High Street by Retro Chick

Good evening!
This is usually that time of day I'm reading through my favourite blogs' updates, so it's so funny I should be posting one of those on my own blog. As I often read and follow Ms. Retro Chick's musings and tips, I asked her to put together a little post on retro styles on the high street to which, much to my appeasement, agreed to! Here are Retro Chick's suggestions, hope you like these - don't forget to see and follow her blog here.

It's still freezing outside, but the blue skies and bird song definitely indicate the rapid approach of Spring which means it's time to start putting away those cosy knits and pull out the cotton dresses and short sleeves.
Fortunately the High Street is still clinging on to it's love of vintage inspired styles, which means updating your wardrobe for warmer weather is pretty easy and affordable.
The key when shopping on the High Street for a retro look is to use your imagination. No matter how the store has styled the item, try and imagine how it might look with items from your existing wardrobe to create a cute vintage style outfit, sometimes for a fraction of the cost. This season the 1970s features heavily in a lot of stores collections, and since we all know the 70s stole most of it's style from the 1930s there's some great bargains to be grabbed.

This navy cricket jumper (Peacocks £18) would look fabulous over a pair of cream wide legs trousers with deck shoes and a big floppy hat and flowing scarf. Very 1930s Cruise style.

 Speaking of wide leg trousers, these pleated palazzo pants (Topshop £48) are also very 1930s. With finger waves and a kimono style top they just scream art deco lounge wear.

Pastels are perfect for spring, and this round neck cardigan (Oasis £35) would look very 50s worn with a pencil skirt and pearls.

Finally, at the super affordable end of the scale, Primark has a few lovely pieces in for Spring Summer.

This 50s skirt (Primark £16) will look lovely if you stand up straight and team it with a twinset and pearls.

And this lovely beach print dress (Primark £17) is probably a bit short for every day, but if you've got a holiday booked it will look cute on the beach!
