SPRING / SUMMER 2012 TREND : AMERICANA

It’s been five years since Mad Men hit our screens and now the vintage 50’s trend has finally hit the runway.  Americana is one of my favourite trends from Spring/ Summer 2012, keeping the 50’s style young and fresh.

From full skirts to cat eye sunglasses, it’s super-easy to incorporate the look into your wardrobe.  Pastel colours and cheeky prints (such as the Cadillacs above) can be worn on dresses or as separates on pencil or A line skirts and blouses.
