From wrap tops and the pant suit to denim dresses, these outfits are inspired by our love for retro fashion .
Here are some fashion-forward outfits that hint at romance – think pink hues and floral prints – but in the most hip and retro way possible.

A classic wrap top and jeans combo is chic and simple

A sure-fire way to subtly show off your curves is to wear a wrap top. Like the famous wrap dress, the wrap top is universally flattering and pairs excellently with denim. We’re in love with this gorgeous floral piece paired with a bright pink belt bag.

The pant suit is refreshing and sophisticated

Take your cue from, ahem, male celebrities Post Malone, Ru Paul and John Legend and get yourself a pink suit. Seriously, if the Internet’s boyfriend Timothee Chalamet can pull off a pink suit, so can you. We also love a pastel green version if pink is a little ‘out there’ for you. Wearing a cropped top makes the pant suit much more casual and '90s – which is still trendy.

A denim dress and pink shirt combo is sexy and playful

Yes, yes, yes to matching denim, especially when one denim piece just so happens to be an adorable bucket hat. Pair your favourite denim dress with a cute tee underneath and stockings for a daytime look that will easily transform into a night-time hit.

A sheer-detailed floral frock is romantic and subtle

We’re head over heels for this floral frock with sheer long sleeves. See-through fabric gives clothing a soft and romantic feel, without being OTT; if you’re not the biggest fan of lace, then a sheer fabric such as this is perfect for you. Pair with brogues and angular mirrored sunnies for a cool retro edge.
