Spring is a time of reinvention. It’s a time to get rid of the old and embrace the new. That’s why spring cleaning is so popular.
Add some retro to your wardrobe with picks from beloved Shop Splash designer Alice McCall. Part hippy, part mod, you’ll want to wear all these looks from spring to summer and beyond!
The Call Me mini dress is the ideal pick for those cooler spring and summer days. It’s semi-sheer, so it’d make a great pool cover-up. If you don’t want to show as much skin, you can always wear the included playsuit slip underneath. There’s an invisible zipper at the back so the loose, playful silhouette is uninterrupted. On the note of the silhouette, this dress hits high at the thighs and has huge, flowing bell sleeves. The red, white, and blue horizontal stripes throughout are reminiscent of a bygone era.
Borrowing the same color scheme is McCall’s I’m a Believer top. This also features stripes, some chunky and others thinner. This knit shirt pulls on, so you’ll grab it from your closet often. With its cropped style and crisscrossing fabric, this stretchy top will feel like a second skin. Push it off your shoulders for instant glam.
You never knew you needed a zip-up denim overalls dress, but trust us, you do. The Hello It’s Me dress is the perfect choice. With its exposed zipper and other metal hardware, this gives off a tough yet girly vibe. Its pinafore style is flattering. Although it does show some skin, all the essentials are covered, so feel free to wear it as is! You can also pair it with the I’m a Believer top.
Yes, we’re back to the stripes with the Riviera dress. The Americano stripes are both vertical and horizontal, with vertical side panels on either side of the dress and horizontal stripes throughout the rest. This mini dress also includes an invisible zipper. The plunging V-cuts in the front and back make this quite a dramatic look. You can create even more drama by exposing both shoulders or just one.
McCall’s Better When I Dance romper is great for dancing, brunch, or a hot date. The ribbon straps down the front of both legs are reminiscent of garters. This off-the-shoulder navy blue romper has white twin horizontal stripes throughout as well as short sleeves and short shorts.
Speaking of short shorts, you’ll want to add the Proud Mary shorts to your collection, stat. They’re amazingly retro, with their invisible back zipper and wide silhouette. These black shorts feature twill ruffles and waist pinching. They fit way above the belly button, so it’s time to bring out those crop tops!
The See You Bye playsuit is another denim wonder from McCall. It’s dark blue throughout with lighter patch pockets in the back. This zips down the front, so feel free to show a little skin if you want to. The sweetheart neckline is flirty, as it the length of the shorts. You can only find these retro Alice McCall looks at Shop Splash!
