50’s monamour

Our blog about Fashion & Lifestyle

If you are looking for fresh inspiration for clothes, turning back to the past is always a good option. After all, there are so many exciting styles and timeless looks just waiting to be reused. In particular, the 1950s refer to a great era. Today, many of the key pieces of the 1950s have once again found themselves in fashion to give the contemporary style a retro twist.

The “rockabilly” of the ’50s was based on the genre of music that moved the first notes in those years. The style, which combined elements of rock and roll with country music, was very popular during the time, especially with teenagers. Because of this popularity, rockabilly and his followers soon developed an original aesthetic. Fashion for women consisted of a mix of pin-up styles and swing look. As such, many rockabilly girls wore swing dresses, pencil skirts, poodle skirts, balloon bra and the like.

Inspired by the seductive poster girls of the day, the 1950s pin-up style was also all about feminine sex appeal. Key pieces included tight pencil skirts, hot pants, American neckline dresses, bustier tops and swimwear, including bikinis.

If you’re looking to add a touch of 1950s style to your wardrobe, here are the key pieces to add to your collection.

The silhouette of the 1950s was about the hourglass. So, of course, fit-and-flare clothes were very popular over time. However, shirt dresses and close-fitting pencil dresses were also the preferred choices for fashionable women. Of course, no matter the style, the dresses of the 50s were all generally knee-length and many even with a playful colour or print. Also, square neck models were in fashion at the time.

Longuette skirts are a fashionable “evergreen”. Perfect for special occasions, these skirts are designed to give a beautiful and feminine look.

Narrow pencil skirts were also popular in the 1950s. These skirts were generally worn at the waist and ended between the calf and knees. Since the tissues had little or no stretch, women had to walk with compassionate movements. Many skirts were in solid colours or checked prints and often accompanied by a matching short jacket. Today it is also possible to combine this type of skirt with a blouse and cardigan for an extra touch of the 50s.

To add a fifties style to your wardrobe you can also use cardigans and sweaters. Perfect for autumn and winter, they will make you feel warm and fashionable. To wear them like a real woman of the 50s, just remember to opt for the tight and cut out designs.
