Have you discovered the new BBC import, Call the Midwife? The series is based on the memoirs of a woman who worked as a nurse and midwife in the early 1950s in London’s East End. You can catch up here.

Young Nurse Jenny and her fellow nurses bicycle to all of their appointments and deliveries wearing the smart uniform of a simple blue dress, a deep red cardigan, matching beret, and a navy trench.

Here’s a fun way to bring this retro style to life today:


The Peter Pan collar is on trend right now, and really gives this outfit its retro feel. The simple grey dress provides a great basic foundation for the whole look. Purple on the cardigan provides a subtle amount of color (red would just be too much). Tom’s suede wedges are a nod to the durable shoes worn by the nurses, and this Steve Madden coat is an insulated update to the classic trench.
