We understand, however, that victory rolls, Mary Jane heels, and hourglass silhouettes may be a little daunting, to begin with, or perhaps isn’t your cup of tea. If this sounds like yourself and you like a touch of vintage-inspired fashion and vintage casual clothing but aren’t sure where to begin, then keep reading! Exchange loud prints for muted colours and textured patterns for vintage casual clothing. We’ve rounded up our top five vintage casual dresses perfect for vintage every day.


Swap out a fit-and-flare 1950s swing dress for a loose 1940s vintage everyday a-line dress with button-down bodice for a more modern touch. Our ‘Ivory’ Burgundy Textured Polka Dot Tea Dress (WAS £40.00, NOW £20.00) is available in an array of polka dot print and polka dot textured devoré.


As hardworking as you are, denim has transitioned from being the core of workwear for many decades loved by cowboys, miners and farmers among many other tradespeople to the dress down casual go-to staple. If there’s one garment that’s vintage casual clothing through and through, it’s our ‘Charlotte’ Light Blue Denim, Shirt Dress.

Jewel tone block colours and relaxed tailoring makes our ‘Shirley’ Purple Tea Dress (WAS £38.00, NOW £19.00) a perfect entry-level style dress into the world of vintage fashion.

Our ‘Lissie’ Dusky Aqua Tea Dress is smart enough to wear as workwear with sweet pleated detailing to the neckline and casual enough to dress down on weekends for ultimate vintage casual clothing with trainers for a simple silhouette.
