Ladies and Gentlemens Fashion in the 1950's


The fashions of the mid-1950's were fun. I enjoyed looking at websites for inspiration for the fashions in my fiction novel.

Short sleeved sweaters, pencil skirts, every day dresses had full skirts and fitted bodices, peterpan collars, full skirts, were a necessity for a lady's wardrobe.

The fellas wore suits and for every day wear, trousers with cuffs, sweaters, and casual button down shirts.
