Is '50s Fashion a Trend We Can't Escape?

1950s style has been creeping under our radars for the last 2 years, making mini come backs in the spring and summer. It started with ice-cream pastels and romantically styled hair. The next year running we saw bold fruit prints and A-line skirts. Now, in it's 3rd year, '50s revival is hitting fashtopia with full force. Car prints inspired by Prada, cat eye sunglasses and hip-hiding, waist-cinching wonder frocks. Big bold fruits and florals a la Dolce & Gabbana are reminiscent of a '50s vacation with a luxe over and cutesy cardigans paired with peplums and collars give the trend a sugary sweet edge. Flattering shapes and a versatile colour palette make '50s fashion perfect for virtually anyone so, I think it's time to jump on the band wagon, girlies. It doesn't get much better than this one. Pull out the sun loungers and the candy cocktails - paradise in your own back garden.
