There’s something very ladylike and feminine about the 1950s – all those buttoned up tops and calf length skirts will appease even the most puritanical among us.
Dolce & Gabbana took the 50s to a vibrant and sexy place with crop tops, bold prints and full skirts while Proenza Schouler had their models looking all farm-worker healthy.
Embrace the trend with full midi length skirts teamed with a fitted top – think the Pink Ladies in Grease – or cropped pastel/printed Capri pants.
Accessory wise think hair ties, cat eye sunglasses and our absolute favourite – flame backed heels. You don’t want to look like you’re on your way to a fancy dress party so steer clear of the pin curls and neckerchief.
Supermodel Liya Kebede embraces vintage Americana with a vibrant printed Proenza Schouler dress while Rochelle Wiseman from The Saturdays keeps it casual with a pair of really short floral shorts.
Will you be wearing any Americana?
