The Betsey Johnson S/S '16 collection is a presentation of every era the brand has seen in its 50 years. Just as kitschy as other Betsey Johnson collections, this spring line features fashion from the 50s, 60s, 80s and 90s.

Though this collection touches on a variety of eras in fashion, the overall theme is dance. Squeezing five decades into 55 looks, the Betsey Johnson S/S '16 collection opens with 80s-esque corseted tutu dresses paired with neon net shirts. The 90s brought a grunge aesthetic with leather gloves, metallic mini skirts and fishnet stockings while the 60s-inspired part of this collection features a variety of mod looks.

Lastly, the 50s offered looks inspired by Johnson's original dance costumes. A pleated mini skirt, gilded top hat and sequin tutu serve as sentimental and stylish.
