One Dress Many Ways

by Charlie Martin May 26, 2021

Our Own Range Brighton Dress in black is perfect for dressing up or down for a chic, everyday look. 

 

 

Made from GOTS-certified (organic cotton), this dress is fresh, durable and machine washable. Great for wearing all summer! 

It was also designed in-house by the Revival Retro team based on our customers' feedback and inspired by classic styles of the 1950s.

It really shows off an hourglass figure with its nipped in waist and space for boobs. The flattering length and sleeve as well as a subtle scoop neckline means this is an easy dress to wear. 

The Brighton Dress can be worn simply on its own but why not have some fun accessorising? Here are some of our tips...

 

Daytime Chic

 

 

Show off the elegant neckline with a silk neckerchief like our Own Range silk scarf in two vintage inspired prints designed in-house by Mary. (Find out more about their design and how to wear them in this blog.)

Bring out the red with these detailed Valentina sandals from Charlie Stone. The have a slight lift in the heel and cushioning to keep you comfortable all day and an easy elastic buckle fastening. Or, if you want to go all in black, try the vegan suede London Shoes
 
To finish off the look and really create shape around the waist, choose from our selection of belts.

Have an accessory you want to make a feature? A simple black dress can be a perfect background. Take these colourful Lorena sandals with fabulous tie detail and a very comfortable padded sole. And of course, we've found the perfect handbag to complement...

Keep it Contemporary 

Whilst we love retro styles we know it's not for everyone every day. Our pieces are versatile enough that you can dress them to match your mood, whether that's retro glamour or modern casual.
