Questions: What 1950s fashion trends are cute & easy to try out?
Answers: I love putting together a cute, retro outfit. Making a trend like this work for today’s fashion scene is fun and totally feasible. But first, let’s take a look at the best 1950s fashion trends:
Boxy shapes were extremely popular in the 1940s. That all changed in the 1950s when Christian Dior introduced a soft, new look. The most identifiable trends of the ’50s were defined waists, bold statements, and vibrant colors. You can easily translate these details into your current looks.
Shop for ’50s inspired clothing like midi skirts that accentuate your waist. If it happens to come in a bright color, that’s even better! Midi skirts are so timeless and you can find them in any trendy store today. Pair it with a soft lace shirt or keep it modern and add a graphic tee or your favorite shirt to complete the outfit.
Peter pan collars are another retro trend that’s hugely popular now. Pair a peter pan collar top with a pair of skinny jeans or a skirt for an easy way to add some ’50s flare to your wardrobe.
Over-sized sweaters are a simple, thrifty way to style your look. Tuck one into a pencil skirt for a casual outfit that’s still super classy. The thrift store Beaus + Ribbons carry tons of great options for modern day vintage clothes.
To put that finishing touch on your ’50s inspired look, add a pop of red lipstick and an adorable handbag.
You’re well on your way to looking like a ’50s fashion icon!
