With summer just around the corner, take our fashion ed's tips to master the art of dressing the 50's Retro Americana trend! Think Mad Men meets The Help meets Lana Del Ray - silk scarves, cat eye sunnies, full skirts and fabulous prints.
Scroll through the images to get a feel for the trend and then find out how you can be featured on GLAMOUR.co.za!
Pretty in Prada: Prada pretty much dominated this look for summer- with a collection of high gloss leather pencil skirts with muscle car motifs and bandeau bralets (if you're brave enough to flash that tummy). Alternatively wear your pencil with a girly printed tee and point toe court heels for a noteworthy nod in the 50s direction.
Sexy in sunnies: Not into point-toe courts and pencil skirts? Opt for sorbet coloured cat-eye sunnies for instant trend access. (We know for sure that Prada at Sunglass Hut will have the exact ones you need!)
Perfect finish: These bright point toe heels are perfect for the '50s trend this season. Get yours from Mr Price, Foschini or Truworths (to name a few). And if you're really into the trend - a silk scarf tied around your head is the perfect top-to-toe finish.
Nab it with neon: Look for palm print pencil skirts and a touch of neon. The new way to nab this trend is to give it fresh legs - literally!
No prints, please: Not such a fan of prints? There are still loads of other ways to dress the trend! Try a 50s style full-skirt teamed with a cute knit and kitten heels.
Here's your chance to show us and your fellow GLAMOUR readers just how stylish you truly are! We want to see what you think the best way to wear the Vintage Americana (50s retro) trend is.
