So you’ve just been invited to dinner by your husband’s boss, and you find you’re struggling to find something to wear. You want to make a good impression and look stylish at the same time. Why not consider wearing something inspired by 1950’s fashion?
This was the era of all out glamour and elegance. Think Marilyn Monroe or Grace Kelly. When putting together a 50’s-inspired ensemble, think of floral sheath dresses in duchess satin and raw silk. A big fashion hit in the 50’s was the trapeze dress. It was a triangular-shaped dress characterized by a swinging hemline. If you want to accentuate your tiny waist, you can go for a dress with either a swing or pencil-type skirt and cinch it at the waist with a belt.
If you want to look like a 50’s fashion diva, remember to match your accessories with your makeup. Your pearl necklace or jeweled brooch will look good with dewy makeup and somewhat smoky eyes. What do you think? Do you see yourself going vintage?
