Baseball Bomber Jacket from Topshop


While many of the womenswear trends inspired by 1950s America are ultra-feminine – from housewife demure to pin-up girl vamp – there's much great style to be plumbed in the menswear of the time. This Baseball Jacket from Topshop takes a great frat boy look and gives it to the girls.

The jacket is a classic piece of Americana, with banded collar and cuffs serving as a contrast to the soft jersey jacket. Adding the boyfriend-jacket element of the 1950s high school style, this simple piece of outerwear is ideal for a great variety of fifties looks from preppy girl to biker girlfriend.

Get it now from Topshop for £40.

Varsity Bomber Jacket from Urban Outfitters


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.
