While concentrating on the myriad styles of fifties fashion for women, it's often easy to forget the appeal of their male counterparts. With the beginnings of truly American frat style taking hold in the fifties and sixties, many lasting pieces of truly American imagery came to the fore.
This Varsity Bomber from Urban Outfitters is a great interpretation of the style, with a simple and classic re-imagining for womenswear. With structure provided on the cuffs, hem and collar by contrasting black and white, the red wine shade stays rich, despite the casual cut.
It's available now from Urban Outfitters for £75.
