1950s Style

Some of my favorite dresses in my personal closet are 50s dresses and retro 50s dresses.  When I want to look completely pulled together these are the dresses I wear.  I really need to take pictures of my own 50s dresses..but for now will share some I have for sale.

Sheer 50s Polka Dot Dress

Many 50s dresses were sheer.  Rhinestone buttons were popular.  Notice most dresses had a fitted waist and full skirt.  Strapless dresses under boleros, sleeveless and short sleeves were common.  In more formal dresses you will find nylon tulle and lots of lace.

Vintage 50s Shirts and blouses followed the dresses in that they were often cotton or sheer nylon.
