50s Dresses

50s Dresses

50s dresses are considered vintage styles since they are from more than 50 years ago, but that doesn’t mean the styles are no longer iconic parts of the current fashion industry. Dresses with flowing ruffled skirts, pencil skirts, plunging halters and fitted corset tops are common components of fashion today, using 1950s dresses and fashion as inspiration for newer styles.

Women who have a penchant for vintage fashion often wear 50s dresses as part of their look. Since dresses can be dressed up or down, skimpy or full, fitted or loose and comfortable, they can be worn to work, out to dinner, to church, or even out for a night on the town. 50s dresses tend to be less revealing than a short-skirted, low plunging dress that is made today, so a simple cardigan or roll of the sleeves can easily transition 50s dresses from a day to a night look.

Curves are hugged, cleavage is plunged, and legs are elongated with the sassy and fearless styles of the 1950s. Curl up your hair and swipe on some bright red lipstick to complete you look as a sexy 50s pin up icon!
