    That is really a fun dress, the label we have in our resource which is similar dates it to the 1970s.
    I find the colors and graphics look like 1980s.

    Perhaps another one of our members will chime in with more info for you.

    The use of neon colours, bold graphic print and batwing effect all looks 1980's to me. I think it would be great as a beach cover up, or accessorized for a night out.
    Does it have another label perhaps?

    Good point from Melanie as another label can often help in dating a garment... a care label, size label or union label.

    I'm not an expert but I get a total 80s vibe from this

    The label and sunray pleats look '70s but the fluoro colours are very '80s. - but then they loved bold bright colours in the early to mid '70s too. Perhaps if we could see it being worn, we could see the shape properly.
