Insight & Inspiration

Stop Staring Dresses UK Stockist, Revival Retro, presents 'Jeanette' the new peplum dress from our favourite vintage inspired clothing brand available in rotating colours through the seasons.

Imported from USA these beautiful vintage inspired dresses are classic styles inspired by beautiful bygone eras.

Detailed Description

Inspired by a classic tailored 1940s suit but softened with feminine flattering details. The boxy look of 1940s suit jacket is present but not overdone, a close fitting bodice is reminiscent of the forties and the flared peplum also gives the look of a short fitted 1940s jacket. The fit through the torso overall accentuates a small waist and the peplum flatters large hips and disguises a tummy. A tapered pencil skirt flts curvy shapes and makes legs look longer.

The 1940s were well known for elegantly tailored attire, though suits started the decade as more utilitarian looking due to the war, the decade ended with the famous Christian Dior New look with fuller skirt and tailored jacket with a nipped in waist.

This 1940s dress borrows elements from that well dressed era but the details have been softened to create a more sultry effect. In effect this dress simply enhances a woman's natural curves to achieve a more attractive look without the help of rigid vintage underwear such as girdles and corsets. This dress borrows elegant vintage style to allow the woman of today to feel attractive wearing something that is retro, smart and sexy.

Size & Fit Expertise

It is in fact a dress that zips up the back though it gives the illusion of a jacket and skirt two piece suit. There are button details down the front and on the sleeve which are purely decorative, there is a faux belt. The dress has a sweetheart neckline. The pencil skirt is stretchy and of a tapered style so it will really make the most of your curvy figure in a flattering way.
