While the 90s and early noughties style revival is holding strong right now, celebs are also showing some love for older styles—specifically 1950s fashion trends. That’s right; the pieces that were popular over 60 years ago are still just as relevant and classic today, and we have the proof.

There's everything from Bella Hadid's cherry embroidered cardigan to Emily Ratajkowski's cat-eye sunglasses to Hailey Bieber in an off-the-shoulder top from S/S 2021 Saint Laurent—so we have solid evidence that these vintage-inspired styles aren't just a blimp in the quick-paced trend cycle. But there is a good reason why we continually look to the 50s for style inspiration: The era's fashion is truly timeless, and we don’t think they will ever go out of style. Want to see the other ways tastemakers are interpreting 1950s fashion trends today? Read ahead to see the five styles celebrities and it-girls alike can't get enough of.

Fashion Market Editor

Indya Brown is a fashion editor, stylist, and writer living in Los Angeles. While going to school at Columbia University in New York City, she got her feet wet in the fashion industry interning at Elle magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and New York magazine's The Cut. After graduating in 2016, she joined The Cut as a fashion assistant, eventually working her way up to fashion editor. There, she worked on a multitude of projects, including styling inbook feature stories for New York magazine's print issue, writing and pitching market stories for The Cut, and serving as fashion lead for The Cut's branded content. While New York has been her home for over 10 years, she moved to Los Angeles in the midst of the pandemic in 2020 for a new chapter. Now she is a fashion market editor for Who What Wear, focusing on emerging designers, rising trends on and off the internet, interior design, and BIPOC creatives and brands. Aside from her duties as a fashion market editor, Brown is also a freelance stylist and writer, working on national print and video commercial campaigns for Sephora, The Independent, and Cadillac. Her bylines also include Harper's Bazaar, Vox, and The New York Times. But once the computer goes down and the emails turn off, she's likely eating her way through Koreatown, hunting down vintage furniture, scoping out new outrageous nail designs to try, or taking a hot cycling class.
