Back In Time : The 1950’s

No matter what anyone else will say, the 1950’s are THE sexiest time period—ever. Ever. EVER!

There’s nothing like mega stars Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn to show us what true Hollywood glamour is all about—simple, timeless elegance. Of course, this can be flipped entirely—the famously voluptuous pin-up girls are just as famous as their Old-Hollywood counterparts.

To embrace this style, fit is very important. 1950s is all about creating that idyllic hourglass shape, so a cinched-in waist is a must. Beyond that, maintain a true lady-like ‘50s vibe with full skirts, sweater sets, pedal pushers, pastels and pillbox hats.

For those of you who are more adventurous, bring out your inner Bettie Page with some sheer tights, polka dot dresses, rounded bangs, skin-tight everything, as well as a heck of a lot of attitude.

Here’s some eye candy to help you start off:
