How to Do Vintage with a Modern Twist for Spring

This spring, fashion is celebrating a return to retro with vintage-inspired silhouettes in a sunny colour palette. The look is romantic, effervescent and irresistibly feminine—and easier to pull off than ever with Sainsbury’s vintage-meets-modern spring collection. The line is poised to help you reinterpret the classics with pretty dresses in charming prints, swingy full skirts, kicky sandals and pin-up-perfect swimwear. Fifties motifs like lively florals and graphic stripes combine with contemporary trends from the Spring 2015 runways like wedges, tie-front tops and pattern-mixing. Put a modern twist on vintage fashion with these four affordable looks from Sainsbury’s that blend old with new for a style that feels totally timeless.

Rose Print Dress + Cork Wedges + Springy Whites

Rose Print Dress + Cork Wedges + Springy Whites

1. Crochet Top White, £18; 2. Floral Dress, £20; 3. Blue Cork Wedges, £20

Here’s one way to look effortlessly gorgeous this spring: slip into a super-feminine dress in a classic fit-and-flare silhouette covered with a bloom of roses in a saturated vintage palette. Add a contemporary touch with a pair of cork wedges in an inspiring colour—one of this season’s biggest footwear trends. Team up the look with a spring layer in fresh white, and provide the finishing touch with a flirty high ponytail.

Pin-Up Swimwear + Tie-Front Top + Espadrille Wedges

When it comes to making a statement on the beach, retro-inspired one-pieces are the new itty-bitty bikini. This uber-flattering halterneck swimsuit in look-at-me red has all the sass of the pin-up models of the 50s, especially if you step out in a pair of two-tone ankle strap espadrilles with an on-trend braided wedge. For a poolside cover-up that keeps your bathing beauty look current, layer on a tie-front shirt in of-the-moment Aztec print.

Retro Stripes

Retro Stripes look

1. Multicoloured Dress £22; 2. Floral Skirt, £18

Stripes are once again having a moment this season, and you can give your spring wardrobe a cheery makeover with easy-to-wear striped pieces. We love the freshness of the pattern play on this dress, which mixes graphic horizontal and vertical lines with a scattering of pretty blossoms. Another clever mix of florals and stripes, this vivacious skirt features bands of cerulean buds for an update on well-loved nautical striping.

Hot Rod Red + Sweet Prints

red printed pieces

1. Red Gingham Dress, £20; 2. Cherries Skirt, £18; 3. Bandana, £6;

No colour evokes the spirit of the 50s like red. Make your look stand out with scarlet pieces in sweet vintage-inspired prints. Delicate gingham is a key style element this spring, and this timeless dress packs a ton of feminine charm with details like a lace hem, criss-cross back and button-front sweetheart neckline. If you’re in the mood to enjoy being a girl, a retro cherry print covers this twirly circle skirt in an of-the-moment midi length. Accessorise any vintage look with this red paisley bandana, which can be worn as a headband, ponytail accent or even knotted around your neck.
