Spring/Summer 2011 Retro Weekend

Article by boohoo


Step into a nostalgic 1950’s seaside scene with boohoo’s new spring summer collection Retro weekend.

The collection includes play full spring colours and pop prints and dresses take their sweetheart shapes from the 50’s Silhouette.

The Retro Weekend collection is flirty and feminine collection inspired by the retro silhouettes and playful prints of the 1950s. Perfect for demurely nibbling cupcakes with your pals, taking a timely trip to the seaside or having a picnic in the park – the Retro Weekend look is all about Old World fun.

Indulge in a little nostalgia! This gorgeous collection features many a nod to the past whilst keeping divinely on trend. Taking inspiration from icons of sound and screen, black and white film greats, Hollywood starlets and all manner of antiquated glamour – this beautiful collection harks back a simpler (and more elegant!) time.

Impossibly pretty polka dots feature prominently in the collection, as do scores of sultry shapes and dazzling prints. The Robyn polka dot belted mac is a key piece in the collection, in a sassy shade of scarlet, softened with a cute bow tie waist and a smart length. The perfect cover-up for a day pounding the pavement shopping or a couple of cocktails with the gals. The Mel polka dot dress does polka dots on a fancy frock and is a nippy piece perfect for swiftly donning the look. A sweet length swinging elegantly above the knee and a form fitting cut guaranteed to flatter your figure – this fab frock is great for a daytime jolly or afterhours soiree.

Vintage floral prints take centre stage with retro playsuits and sweetheart prom dresses. In a stunning array of exotic brights and cutely contemporary ice cream pastels – this style screams kooky cool. Add a touch of pizzazz to your look whilst showing of your fashion nous and go colour crazy in eye-popping day dresses, minis and cuter-than-cute tops.

And let us not forget one of Spring’s style staples: the Peter Pan collar. The ONLY collar to be spotted in this season – dress up in Peter Pan collars like the Morgan satin dress – a sheeny, shiny piece that clings to your hips whilst channeling plenty of style with a cute collar to boot. Style with preppy brogues or lace up pumps for the full fashion effect. Why not pick up a pair of Peaches patent brogues? Timelessly classic and doubtlessly perfect for the look – stay one step ahead of the fashion pack.

The lively colour story continues with shoes and accessories – so be sure to tick every style box and get this look spot-on! Why not step out in style in our pastel pink and lemon raffia platforms? The Rach Wedges will give you a bit of an ol’ lift, lengthen your legs AND have you looking unutterably fabulous. Or how about our kitsch colour sunglasses? The ace Pippa Sunglasses in cherry pop red are achingly on-trend and are resplendent in celebrity endorsed cool.

This collection is all about dressing up, experimenting with looks and prints, and, of course, having fun! So why not get yourself in the summer mood and indulge in a treat or two. Candy floss, anyone?
