Men’s fashion for you!
And of course I have to include the women. So fun!
Fifties Fashion said, “Women dressed ‘smartly’ in the Fifties. Good grooming and a tailored look were prized. Acting and looking ‘every inch the lady’ was taught virtually from the cradle and wearing a dress was a given…”
The pencil style skirt was worn by older ladies, but not the younger women because it was considered too provocative (according to this website). The swing skirt was widely popular. Wrap around skirts were commonly worn around the house. The following pictures were taken from Fifties Fashion.
The beautiful Audrey Hepburn. 1953.
This next one is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE dress I’ve seen so far. I would LOVE to be able to make this, but I’m just not sure I’d be able to figure it out!!! Picture found here.
Poodle Skirts! My mom totally made me one when I was little and I loved it!!! I still have it. I’ll have to dig it out and post it. I wasn’t alive in the 60’s so it’s not a vintage poodle skirt from that era:).
