If you’re hoping to achieve a 1950’s look, we’re going to give you some top tips to get you started. Whether you’re looking to go for a full-on authentic look, or mix and match with different eras to create a unique style, you’ve come to the right place.
The 1950’s was all about colourful prints, volume and ultimately looking feminine. The great thing about 50’s fashion was that it suits any figure and can be worn by almost anyone – young or old.
We have picked out some key 50’s pieces from our website and we’ll give you some useful info on how you can pair them with accessories to create unique looks.
The 1950’s was all about wide, circle skirts so dresses such as the one above were extremely popular and could be worn for a simple picnic in the day or even going to the dances in the evening. The pink and floral 1950’s dress above would look great teamed with a white petticoat, white heels and a pearl necklace to achieve an authentic look.
Wiggle dresses were an extremely popular style of dress during the 50’s, and many of the modern dresses we see today are based on the original 50’s style. Wiggle dresses were designed to be narrow and close fitting to accentuate the waist. Unlike the cute circle skirt style as above, the wiggle oozed sophistication and sexiness. We have paired with red heels to complete the outfit. Buy our Blanes pink floral dress here.
If you’re hoping to achieve a much more modern take on the 1950’s look, why not team a floral shirt with a denim skirt or jeans? You’ll bring your look bang up to date with a leather jacket to achieve a rockabilly 50’s look. This outfit would be great for all-year-round wear.
We hope you’ve taken some great style tips from out blog. If you’re interested in other eras, we stock clothing from the 1950s-1990’s so take a browse on our website for more.
