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.
