50'S DRESSES

HOW TO DRESS ‘50s STYLE
It's fun to go a little retro now and then. Getting all dolled up in ‘50s fashion can be oh-so fun. Whether you're a glamorous Betty or a preppy Peggy, there are so many fashionable takes on this decade. Say you want that whole sock hop, two straws in a milkshake, grooving to the jukebox kind of look. This calls for one of our stylish skater dresses. The full-skirted silhouette practically screams ‘50s. Add an applique of lace and you're set for a vintage-inspired wedding. Lastly, don a curve-hugging sheath silhouette, and you'll be channelling confident Joan vibes in no time.

NICE ACCESSORIZING, DADDY-O
Okay, you've seen our ‘50s dresses, now it's time to talk 1950s accessories. Start by taking notes from the ever-so-popular rockabilly style. Get yourself some Bettie bangs or victory rolls and top with a cute bandana tied at the crown of the head. Next, layer a button-up blouse over your dress and tie with a knot at the waist. This will help define the waistline which was a must for ‘50s silhouettes. Alternatively, you could nab one of our cute rockabilly cardigans in any color you want! Don't forget your bold winged liner, hot red lip, and cat-eye frames to complete the look.

JITTERBUG IN THE BEST SHOES
How could we forget shoes?! This era was all about the fabulous footwear. If you're taking one of our vintage swing dresses or plus-size vintage dresses out for a spin, you're going to want the shoes to match. Some of our favorite shoe styles hail from this era. Mary Janes and t-strap heels will add an air of glamour and fun to a number of our vintage dresses. And let us not forget the coveted two-toned saddle shoes! Everyone needs a pair in their wardrobe ASAP, unless they have one already. They'll be perfect for jiving on the dancefloor during your next swing lesson.
