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.
