New in! Designed & manufactured in the UK 🇬🇧

A dress that’s blessed with effortless elegance and Winter glamour, our ‘Way Out West’ Royal Stewart Tartan swing dress, new for Autumn/Winter. It is inspired by the style of the great Katharine Hepburn and a Vivienne Westwood shirt dress we have. This chic, full circle frock fastens with 18 front, Tortoise Shell buttons. It is made from a traditional Royal Stewart Tartan and features half sleeves with nifty buttoned cuffs and an elegant 50s, semi flared collar. This dress also comes with a 1.5″ matching belt but looks equally amazing when worn without. To create a full on 50s look just pop one of our fluffy Black petticoats underneath or wear without for that chic, shirt dress look.

This dress is a slightly more generous fit than our Black Watch version due to the fabric being a bit looser and has a little stretch.

    Dear British Retro, just stop producing gorgeous frocks. I am running out of adjectives to describe how fantastic your dresses are.

    For heaven’s sake make a dud just so I can take a break from “gorgeously designed, beautifully fitting and makes me feel amazing” have a dress where I can say “I looked like a potato” I am running out of space in my wardrobe.

    British Retro have once again decided against making me a potato and this dress is stunning. It works with both the ivory and black petticoat underneath.
