1950s Blouses

1950s Blouses

1950s Blouses  – The one pictured here is a very basic 50s blouse.

Notice the soft draping and lines.

This blouse is simple and timeless. The rolled sleeve was popular, as was mongramming.

Here we see essentially the same shirt, one with short sleeves, and one with the kimono sleeve. Both have a soft collar.

The soft feminine look of the puff sleeve blouses at right is in keeping with the Fifties idea of womanhood.

These could also be worn with a suit.

Fabrics tended to be natural so ironing was required.

A young woman might wear a halter top in summer. The look was still very discreet and unlike today, no belly buttons are showing. Notice the high waist line on the shorts.

Here are the many possible sleeve variations of the Fifties.
