Aliah Varsity Jacket from Missguided


While many 50s looks may be all about exaggerated femininity, there's little more girly than borrowing your sweetheart's clothes. The return of the frat jacket style in womens wardrobes is ideal for a retro Americana look, with modern crafting adding some feminine fit.

This Aliah Varsity Jacket from Missguided has a classic collegiate look, with white sleeves and piping creating impact. The bright red colour adds to that fifties US feel, while the jersey fabric allows for some figure-hugging femininity.

It's available online from Missguided for £29.99.

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.
