50s Fashion

Fifties clothes Soft, feminine, romantic...these words best describe Fifties evening wear.

World War II brought mass production of clothing as part of the war effort. As this expanded into the Fifties, it meant that ordinary women had a chance to buy designer inspired evening wear for the first time.

Fifties party
At left, two afternoon to evening dresses. The shawl was a common evening accessory.Even... gasp a mink stole was popular for a wrap.

At right is the type of party dress a younger woman might easily wear. Customarily, it was deemed inappropriate for young ladies to wear sexy clothing. But even this "pretty in pink" dress accentuates the bust and waist to advantage.

Fifties party
The harem draping seen at both left and right was a short-lived look. Although very stylish at the time, women quickly tired of going out looking like a hot air balloon. In keeping with the femininity of the period this did nothing for a woman's figure.

Fifties dress
Fantasy dresses abounded. Fueled by Hollywood, style was limited only by imagination. In the Fifties, every woman could be Cinderella at the ball.
