Smart & Sophisticated Dresses - Autumn Style

by Rowena Howie September 15, 2015

At Revival Retro we excel at smart, sophisticated dresses and this Autumn the new 'Karla Dress exemplifies that style.

Both comfortable and stylish this dress is made from a soft woven fabric in a houndstooth pattern. We just love the smart teal and black contrast colours, it makes it interesting and remarkable without being ostentatious or attention grabbing.

The sophisticated design is inspired by the feminine silhouettes and flattering cuts of late 1950s fashion that remained popular into the sixties. However, you don't need to be a fan of vintage style to see how this dress will compliment your wardrobe today.

It's the details on this dress that really sell it. That fabulous neckline with discreet bow, the understated ruching at the hip which flatters the midsection but most of all the sleeves. For Autumn and winter many of our customers come looking for a stylish dress with sleeves but the gathers make this an exquisite detail that gives this dress something special and different.

If smart and sophisticated is the look you have in mind then visit Revival Retro at 30 Windmill Street, London, England for excellent choice and service. We stock a seasonal collection of dresses, shoes and accessories that is also available online.
