poodle Skirt
50s clothing
The poodle skirt. This is the look most associated with the Fifties. And when you saw the "skirt" link, it's what you most expected to find.

Yes, young women wore them. And had we known they would be immortalized as the symbol of an era, more of us would have saved ours.

A poodle skirt is a wide swing skirt with a poodle appliqued or transferred onto the fabric. Poodles were not the only items used to adorn these skirts, they are just the best remembered.

But it was by no means all women wore.

Pleated skirts complimented the tailored look favored in the 50s. Whether as at left with a broader front panel or at right with the slightly larger flare to the skirt.

Hemlines were to the knee or just below it.

Fifties skirts
No wardrobe was complete without at least one pencil skirt, shown at left. The pencil skirt was glamorous and accented a womanly figure.

Remember that women didn't wear pants except for the most casual activities, so you needed a couple of practical skirts.

At right, a variation of the swing skirt, modified to make a peasant style of flare.
