There are really many options when it comes to dressing in 50's inspired fashion. You can wear a dress, a skirt, or even pants. You can put on a sheath dress or a full-skirted frock. You can sport just about any shoe, and have a variety of hairdos to choose from. When coming up with attire for my 50's posts, there were many ideas swirling around! Below is the second set of outfits that I put together which show different styles of the era (if you didn't see the first two outfits, view here).
When I came to this part of the series, I knew that this coat must somehow be incorporated. Ever since coming into my possession, it has reminded me of the 50's. For this outfit, I wore it over a boat-neck sweater and pencil skirt that had the flavor of the era. To finish of the outfit, I simply had to add my quintessential pearls and heels. Voila!
The main part of this outfit is a cheerful dress that just happens to be the only one I've ever made! With its bright floral print, fitted bodice and full skirt, it has a vintage air about it. Boleros and wedges were both popular in the 50's, so adding these elements to my outfit made it retro and ready for spring!
P.S. The above and below photos were taken with my new camera. :D
Thus ends our tour through the 1950's. Our next stop is the 60's, and the gears of my mind are already turning with ideas! ;) I hope that you have been enjoying this series as much as I have!
"Remember the former things of old,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like Me,
Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand,
And I will do all My pleasure,’"
