So talking of modern stretchy fabrics, here's an example of taking a tube skirt and styling it a bit differently. Although not that differently, just putting some different touches on it...
... In this case by adding hair rolls, red lipstick and ankle-strap sandals - all more associated with 50s style.
(Can you tell I took these shots during sunnier times!)
I rather like the muted pastel colours of this skirt... I also like that this skirt was just £9.99 and yet is somehow still flattering!
I don't like looking like I've walked out of a mid-century catalogue, so this combination of retro hints and modern patterns works pretty well for me.
Vest top: H&M
Sandals: Swedish Hasbeens Braided Sky Highs
