A fun spin on a Fifties evening is a rock’n’roll party – wear your biggest circle dress, sip sodas and dance along to Little Richard all night long. Here are some suggestions for a fun rock’n’roll inspired party look.

marina dress

The dress
Choose a big, full circle dress for maximum swoosh while you’re dancing. This ‘Marina’ dress by Tara Starlet would be a great choice. With its exposed back, long sleeves and big skirt it’s very structured and classic without being too conservative. I particularly like the checked and gingham versions for a youthful, teenage feel.

saddle shoes

The shoes
Go for a proper bobby soxer look and pair your big dress with white socks and a pair of saddle shoes. These Rocket Originals are based on an early Fifties model and come in red, blue, green and black.

record clutch bag


The bag
If you don’t want to go vintage, opt for a funĀ record clutch bag. This one by Wiggle Sister comes in different fabrics and can even be customised to be based on your favourite rock’n’roll vinyl.


The scarf
Round up your outfit with a chiffon scarf tied around your neck. You can find pretty much any colour and plenty of patterns on Etsy.
