High Street Vintage Style

With September fast approaching, it feels like summer is drawing to a close. So what better time than to share with you some summer high street vintage style! I was obviously supposed to write this a few months ago, but as always, life got in the way…

I have seen so much high street fashion with vintage twists this year! From gypsy tops to floaty, a-line skirts, there has been a lot of inspiration for me. I wanted to share with you what I have purchased and what I have spotted – hopefully you will be able to find some goodies in the high street sales!

I have seen so many gypsy tops and peasant blouses this year – you may have spotted another high street purchase of mine a few months ago in my Lookbook!

Here is a button front peplum blouse, which I paired with my Joanie Clothing Wisteria skirt from last year. This top could easily go with a pair of capris and pencil skirts too. This can currently be found in the New Look sale. You will notice that all the pieces that I bought can be found in New Look!

The Sun Dress

This sun dress was the first purchase I made back in spring. The print itself is very vintage inspired – palm trees, blossoms and I spotted some little elephants too! It was the shape and cut that caught my eye the most. The dress is a-line, with a light weight material – perfect for summer. The bodice has a lace up, corset style which I thought was an interesting design. This dress comes in many other prints also, so it is worth having a look. This has probably been my most worn garment this summer. I am certainly going to be wearing it to enjoy the rest of this August heat wave!

Vintage Inspiration

Below I have added some further vintage style high street fashion. As much as I would love to own them, I can’t afford it all! It can either be a vintage style print (such as the polkadot cami dress), the length or the cut of an item that can make it look vintage. But as with most things, accessories, hair and make up can really pull any outfit together!


As it is late in the summer, I am hoping to do a more autumn/winter high street style post soon! What vintage trends have you spotted so far this year?
