Meet Me At The Diner

Diners are popular and a favourite for many. We don’t think diners will ever get old. So lets talk about styles from that time, when we think about diner fashion , we think the 50s and 60s and there’s no  denying that they were one of the most impactful eras in fashion. Setting the tone for modern style, the decade revolutionised womenswear with bold colours, striking cuts and a rebelliously youthful attitude. So, it comes as no surprise that over half a century on, key trends from the time continue to influence designers, stylists and fashion-lovers the world over. To channel the era’s unforgettable aesthetic for yourself, take a look at the bubbly and beautiful Tv presenter and MC, Chanley Wong along with her sister do a double take on this trend.
