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.

all shops and brands

If you’re looking to add some fun 50s dresses to your wardrobe, don’t be intimidated by the thought of having to sift through a thrift store for hours on end just to find a dress. There are all sorts of online boutiques that specialize in outfits inspired by pin up and retro eras, particularly the 1950s since it was such a positive time. Some of these boutiques include What Katie Did, Babygirlboutique, Starlets and Harlets, and Hepburn and Leigh. Looking for a bolder style that channels more of the rockabilly look? Lolita Girl Clothing, Yvonne’s Inked Divas and Gents, Whirlingturban and Suicide Glam all have the rockabilly and psychobilly look added into their 50s dress styles. For the sassy sailor look that was popular throughout the pin up era of the 1950s, Lucky Diva and Pony Maedchen sell all sorts of 50s dresses with military-inspired styles galore.

50s dresses are not for one specific type of woman. Whether you’re petite or plus-sized, the 50s was a time to embrace all women, regardless of age, size or style. 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!
