1950s style was the birth of American fashion and today, is one of the most popular vintage trends to incorporate into your everyday wardrobe. After World War II ended in 1945, the doors for American fashion designers opened wide with stylish opportunity. The collection purported a feminine softness totally opposite from the ’40s militaristic styles of wide shoulders jackets, short skirts and an overall ethos of less-is-more (limited adornment or elaborate designs) made from minimal materials to conserve for the world. Even if you’re a girl who prefers the fun looks of 1960s fashion and modern freshness of 1970s clothing, the 1950s has a style for you.

Rockabilly is a fashion and lifestyle culture popular in the southern and western areas of the United States. Today, rockabilly music, lifestyle and fashion lives on in states like California, Tennessee, Washington and Nevada. The stereotypical rockabilly girl is commonly seen with coiffed hair, tattoos and wing tip eyeliner while wearing a 1950s dress, cat eye sunglasses and stilettos.
Any 1950s sundress or shirtwaist dress paired with crinoline lays the foundation for the look. Or, skip going all ’50s and pair your dress with a contrasting pair of solid or patterned tights, dazzle up that hair and heck, wear a bunch of cocktail rings on one hand. To decorate the skirt, she came up with the creative idea of buying whimsical appliques – perfect for the holidays. The skirt was such a hit, that she decided to make a few more and see if a Beverly Hills boutique would be interested in them. Within a short time, word of the new trendy skirt spread and upscale department stores around the country like Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman were ordering in droves. The trick is to wear it during the appropriate season (I’d argue spring) and to gently play up the novelty characteristics of the look.
The typical poodle skirt is made from felt material, but many vintage style versions are made from cotton.
If you’ve seen A Place in the Sun (1951), then you undoubtedly gasped when Elizabeth Taylor wears her tulle dress. That dress was so popular amongst women and young girls in America that it became the style to reproduce for the era.


The truth is that they’re princess dresses, capturing a romanticism that only layers of tulle and lace made voluminous by a circle skirt of crinoline can.
High school girls can wear these dresses to their real proms and college-age sorority girls to their formals.
The style is elegance defined and is best worn when you want to wow your audience with this style of ageless appeal. Big thanks to JoRetro boutique for sharing this photo of her mother Ladonna, who wore this dress to her senior prom in 1957. Famous pin-up models included professional models like Bettie Page and legendary movie stars like Rita Hayworth. Thank you to Amanda and Laura of Maejean Vintage for sharing this photo of their grandmother Doris caught in her pin-up pose while sunbathing in 1950! The grit and glory of high football games represent this golden era of America and next to poodle skirts and saddle shoes, the visuals of girls and boys wearing varsity sweaters has become an iconic look with the era. The varsity sweater descends from the letterman jacket, first conceived in 1865 at Harvard University. The style carried into the 20th century and by the ’50s was not just seen on jackets but also sweaters as a more relaxed approach to showing your school pride and sports swagger. In the ’50s, girls wore the varsity sweaters gifted or lent to them by their boyfriends over dresses or with skirts.
Since the sweaters’ school spirit give them a dose of personality already, you can style around them in a variety of fashions. Thank you to Kara Fancy That Vintage for submitting this photo of their grandmother Dania in May of 1950! Although harder to clean, authentic felted poodle skirts hold their shape with the thickness of the felt and the extra rigid vintage crinolines underneath.
Awesome post, I love how you gave ideas on how to wear vintage in today’s modern world. The haute couture houses of fashion in Paris stopped producing designs during the war, so by the mid ’40s  their influence had waned. She was still dressed to impress, protecting her house dress with a pretty apron and when the chores became too much, resting on the stovetop with a glass of wine and a smoke. These are dresses that feel best for school, social events and just looking really good when you want to get out of those sweatpants.
In the spring, the same boutique requested the full felt skirts with a non holiday applique. A sweeping skirt of maximum volume is feminine with a capital F and further enhances the wearer’s shapely figure. Women wore the styles to parties and their daughters to proms, which is why these dresses are most commonly called prom dresses.


Wearing a dress like this transports you back to Cinderella’s era, as if attending the royal ball with your prince. The width of the circle skirt draws attention to your waist, which appears tinier because of the skirt’s volume.
Grown women can wear them to their favorite parties of the season for a dress that no matter what crazy moves you might do on the dance floor, simply makes you look good. A tulle prom dress feels just as perfect for a summer photoshoot in a field of flowers as it does worn under the mistletoe for a holiday event or perhaps, in the back of a limousine for your best friend’s bachelorette party. Always the bargain hunter, she was able to purchase it at a discount because of a small powder stain. Their photos provided comfort to the men of America who everyday, wondered if they would return home alive to see their loved ones and sweethearts.
Love this pamphlet right here, first time I glanced at the Google Image thumbail I was just oh em gee. Even just adding the makeup, or wearing a look like Jasmin from Vintage Vandal above, captures the rock-chic glam of this ’50s look. The bandanna is a ’40s Rosie the Riveter touch that in my personal honesty, makes the outfit an A+ versus just an A. For a bonafide ’50s look, accessorize with a matching earrings, necklace and bracelet jewelry set. With money so tight, Juli was left to create her own clothing for the upcoming holiday events. The bodice of the dress nips you in all the right places and draws attention to your shoulders, neck and face. For girls of the era, it was a tomboyish topper that pledged their allegiance to their school and their man. Jack White convinced her to put out a new album last year, and she was touring to promote it. Its made by Cran Barry which was formed in 1945 and, although the company is still around, they don’t make cheerleading outfits anymore. She sounds exactly the same, and wore a fringe top a lot like the (amazing) dress she’s wearing in this video.
