For women, popular 50’s clothing includes playsuits, pencil skirts, ruffled dance skirts, sky-high stilettos, halter tops with plunging necklines, fitted corsets, bright colored tights, contrasting colors and fun, bold accessories. For men, it’s the leather jackets, sweater vests, letter jackets, greaser styles, slicked back hair and vintage band t shirts that represent the 1950s styles. Women can often be seen wearing men’s letter jacket styles or a leather jacket to complement their man as well, as this was popular in the 1950s.
Fortunately, you don’t have to spend hours scrounging around thrift stores if you want to find some great, affordable 50s fashion. There are all sorts of online boutiques across the internet that specialize in various types of 1950s clothing. Some of the most popular include Pin Up Girl Clothing for all things pin up and Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn Style, Bettie Page Clothing for more pin up clothes representative of the popular icon, Modemerr for various types of 1950s women’s clothing, and Modcloth for the fun vintage styles that remain so playful. Pony Maedchen and Lucky Diva both offer military inspired styles since the military played a large role in the history and trends of the era.
