Fashion of the 50s
swing dresses, pretty floral prints and a feminine wasp waist: we absolutely
adore the fashion of the fifties! That’s why we have included a large number of
50s dresses, skirts, shoes, swimwear, bags and so much more in the collection
of our retro boutique!
Gorgeous clothes from the 50s
The New Look introduced by Christian Dior shortly after World War II had a major influence on fifties fashion. The defining characteristics of this look were the wide A-line skirts with petticoats, a shapely bust line and of course the super feminine wasp waist. Ooh la la!
and Petticoats were just as popular as the figure-flaunting pencil skirts.
However, trousers were hardly present in women’s wardrobes. But pairing a
fitted blouse with a skirt or wearing a tailored suit was very much on-trend.
Solid colours on the other hand were out of fashion; floral prints and polkadots were everywhere.
Another significant change was that once rationing ended, larger quantities of fabric become available allowing dresses to be made with excess fabric, lavishly embellished and featuring gorgeous detailing. We love it!
