The satin midi skirt

Nobody’s Child is known for taking vintage-inspired designs and bringing them up to the minute with modern silhouettes. Case in point: this nod-to-the-Eighties satin midi skirt. The fabric feels gorgeous against your skin and the rich golden yellow brings a jolt of joy on a grey day. Wear with jumpers and ankle boots right now and, come spring, white tees and trainers for a fresher look. Styling top tip: for a more relaxed fit to the skirt, size up.

The animal print mini dress

There’s so much to love about this mini dress. The animal print is awesome and the smock shape is super-versatile, as you can keep it loose or cinch it in, either with its own tie or a cool belt. And if the print wasn’t statement-making enough, the long floaty sleeves add real wow factor. Also, it’s a mini dress that is bang on trend right now.

The polka-dot dress

This dotty dress has major vintage vibes, which means it will have massive staying power in your wardrobe. The print is obviously gorgeous, but what makes the dress a real winner is its style: the V-neck and fitted waist combination make it truly flattering. It’s also perfect for layering (double win now it’s cold). A plain top will look great or, for an edgier look, slip a striped roll-neck underneath. You’ve got this.
