There are a few things in life I love more than a sale (ever wonder why it was retro AND THRIFT?) so here’s my best picks from the current Dorothy Perkins sale! Thank me later.
1. BEACH/DAY DRESSES
Dorothy Perkins have some amazing day dresses on offer my favourite is probably the Watermelon Sundress which would be perfect for a day on the beach or a picnic in the park. Other dresses that caught my eye was the Polka Dot Bandea Dress, brilliant to slip on around the pool, the Pinstripe Pinny Dress and the one featured in the first picture – the Ivory Rose Cami Dress. They’re all under £15 in the sale so it wont matter as much if you get sand on them!
2. BARDOT TOPS
A bardot top is a great way to add a retro twist to any outfit! DP have a few on sale including a black and mint green or if you fancy something a bit more intricate they also have a gorgeous pink lace bardot!
Dorothy Perkins never fail to disappoint me when it comes to skirts. I love their midi skirts especially, they nip you in at the waist giving a very 1940s/50s feel! My favourite at the moment is their Meadow Floral Midi Skirt but I also think that their Ruby Rocks Plaid Midi could be a great summer staple. Another mid-century favourite is the pencil skirt and DP have a lovely daisy print one for just £12.80
I always feel anything high-waisted gives a lovely vintage feel and I managed to find a few high-waist shorts whilst browsing the sale. I settled on three favourites, the tropical ones give a great “tiki” vibe and I could definitely see myself in the red floral pair on a hot day; the denim pair are a summer must-have for festivals and travelling!
