NIFTY 50s

The fashion and style of the 1950’s continues to influence the designers of today. One of my favourite eras for pure femininity and grace.

The conservative necklines of the 50s aren’t for everyone , but I simply love the detailed collar on this 50s inspired top (that also comes in a peppermint) from River Island – very Audrey Hepburn.

Love the elegance of the full skirts from that era but also the sexiness of a pencil skirt. Spotted this fabulous one in H&M this week (who yesterday launched their 70 piece collection in collaboration with Italian label Marni). You need to see the fabric of this skirt to appreciate. Nude with mint spots.

Soon I’m going to trade my wardrobe staple skinnies for a cool & casual capri pants. Much softer for summer. Love them teamed with a cropped gingham blouse or a flowery bra top a la Marilyn Monroe back in the day.

This week, I was fortunate enough to see a preview of Gok Wan’s new GW glasses range for Specsavers (in stores from 18th March). Freshwater PR managed the launch – an award-winning Agency, who I’ve had the pleasure of working back at my day job in major events.

Great to see another high street retailer collaborating with a designer / celebrity to produce affordable and wearable products.

It was clear that Gok also looked to the past for inspiration and drawn style cues from the 50’s. The cat’s eyes shapes added a touch of vintage-chic. No doubt I won’t be the only gal with perfect eyesight sporting a pair this season!

That’s two major fashion launches in Cardiff this week – great for the city!
