The Beach Boys have nothing on this Hawaiian print shirt! Thanks to its plain bold collar and retro colour palette, it brings stylish sophistication to what has become an otherwise infamous item of clothing. Square sunglasses, a smile – and maybe some sunshine – are all the accessories you need.Sun RX 168
Sticking with bold prints, this leaf-pattern shirt makes a statement in all the right ways. The crisp open neck collar creates a classic feel that takes it from day to night in a breeze. Subtle tortoiseshell–frame glasses and a pair of penny loafers will make this the perfect fusion of '50s fun and modern-day swagger.Rufus
A subtle nod to the '50s craze of patterned wallpaper takes this simple shirt and jacket combo to new heights. A spin on the 1950s preppy look (otherwise known as 'Ivy League'), this is definitely one for meeting a partners parents for the first time. Classically styled sunglasses will add a laid-back twist.
A silk cravat peeking out from underneath a t-shirt is one of the most stylish ways to nod to the '50s and, paired with slim-fit jeans and bold framed glasses, is a unique casual look. When it comes to your t-shirt choice, embrace an Instagram-filter colour palette like this olive number to ramp up the retro theme.Faldo
