Oversized glasses are effortlessly nostalgic, whether sunglasses or thick acetate frames like this pair from Gucci. Shades of pastels, like the bubblegum-pink Valentino top and trousers, are an understated way to channel the past: get that faded Instagram filter on and it's 1959 again. Complete the look with ankle boots, like this heeled pair from Christian Dior.

LEFT: Stripes can't come back, because they never went away, but for an added retro feel on a classic look, opt for narrow pinstripes like this Loewe dress and boots.

CENTRE: Embroidery was back with a vengeance in 2016, and it's not going anywhere this year — Gucci has championed the trend, from floral handbags to Broderie Anglaise dresses

RIGHT: All-black doesn't mean boring when you layer. Givenchy are going grunge with a 90s-inspired take on the bomber jacket and sheer tulle dress, paired with studded ankle boots for added punk power.

Bold colours, like this pink jacket from Miu Miu, are the perfect way to add a pop of 80s chic to your wardrobe. If you're still dreaming of disco's heydey, add some sparkle with sequin and glitter embellishments, like this Miu Miu tunic

Wide-leg trousers are the ultimate retro fashion piece, and this matching two-piece from Bally combines sharp tailoring with pinstripe for a playful spin on the pyjama trend. Match with Balenciaga sandals — are they sandals, are they slippers? It's not important when they look this good.
