All of us would recognize the specific style of the 50s, and we have to admit that there are some trends that would be worth to be brought to present day. There have been some attempts to bring back the styles, naturally with a more modern touch, but so far the success has been quite small.
Cat eye sunglasses
This item has become famous because Marilyn Monroe has been wearing them during that era. Sunglasses of the same style have been spotted on Scarlett Johansson and since then people have become more conscious regarding this style.
Since they have the shape of a cat’s eye, they can add instant sexiness to just any outfit.
Although they remind people of felines, you have to make sure that you won’t be wearing any feline prints, like tiger or cheetah. Instead opt for the classic black dress or something in a neutral color, like beige.
If you would like to have a print then opt for something less screaming like tortoise.
There are only a few trends that are as well documented as the A-line skirts of the 50s. This is one of the cases when the appearance of the trend can be set at a certain moment. The style has been brought by Dior in 1947. After this moment the style spread very fast all over the world.
This is because it was a feminine style in a moment when women could afford to become feminine again. The advantage of this style is that it can make a woman feel sexy instantaneously and this is why it might be a good idea to bring the style back. Nonetheless the trend isn’t really suitable in case of the petite women because it could make them look shorter.
Peter Pan collars
The interesting thing about this style is that it could make just any outfit more interesting. It is good to know that the collars make women look younger and more playful. It looks like the fashion of the 50s has been all about feminine nature and the collar appeared right on time.
You don’t have to be thinking about the sharp collars, but the ones that come with soft curves in a half moon shape. In case you don’t want to end up looking like a schoolgirl, you should make sure to be wearing the right kinds of accessories to fit the look of the collar.
