When you’ve been listening to Elvis Presely and Buddy Holly on repeat and can’t get enough of chrome accents and vanilla milkshakes from roadside diners, you’re probably in the type of mood where you want to look like you just stepped out if Grease (we’ve been there too). It’s all too easy to think that your only denim options are dungarees, but this editorial featuring Rose Smith in Marie Claire Australia‘s December 2011 issue shows us that you can totally channel those 1950s vibes beyond simply rolling up your jeans and hiking up your ponytail. Decked out in clean and classic cardigans, pencil skirts, and secretary tops, the addition of a tailored, light-wash denim shirt makes these types of retro-inspired looks all the more fresh.

With its always uninhibited spirit and promise to produce affordable and of-the-moment fashion, Blanco gives us a 1950s inspired collection that won’t leave you looking like a square. Styled with a Rock-a-Billy sensibility, the Spring Summer 2011 Rock Your Jeans campaign showcases an array of denim pieces from body-hugging sweetheart neckline dresses to denim jackets, and of course the iconic rolled up jeans in deep indigos. Models Vladimir Ivanov and Sheila Marquez might not be the quintessential Danny Zuko and Betty Rizzo, but we’re okay with that because we’re loving this campaign.
