The 60s and Victorian themes that were ever present on runways last year for autumn/winter 2015 are now in store at Dorothy Perkins. For the new season, the brand focuses on key pieces and offers them in a variety of different prints and textures. Short pinafore dresses and A-line skirts are given warm and earthy vibes with 60s patterns, and chunky stripes give upflift cozy wrap cardigans.

Neutrals and deep hues both adorn 70s-inspired blouses with geometric patterns and pussy-bow necklines, and can be paired with the range of fitted trousers in store. For final touches, the brand recommends a swanky faux fur coat and suede or leather-effect ankle boot.

Denims, dungarees and burnt orange shades are also key for the season, as is chic layering with a mixture of different textiles. You can achieve the look with a lace panelled top, tucked into a zip-up denim skirt with a sweater vest or leather jacket thrown over. Or instead, opt for a printed blouse underneath a solid pinafore dress, and complete the look with wooden block heels.
