Much of the fifties reproduction fashion available both in the mainstream and from dedicated retro brands leans heavily on a hyper feminine look. But from the decade that truly brought menswear into womens fashion there's plenty of untapped influences to be explored.
This Jet Pocket Shirt from Dorothy Perkins is a great fifties-styled piece that manages to combine a masculine influence with some feminine flair. The use of a bowling/diner style collar and pocket detailing creates an instantly rockabilly mood, with the sleeveless cut and loose fit keeping things just androgynous enough.
It's available from Dorothy Perkins for £20.
