84 Fabulous 50s Fashions

From Retro Cat Eye Specs to Vintage Glamazon Shoots

— January 24, 2014 — Fashion
The 50s were a more simple time, however 50s fashions were by far more glamorous.

Nothing beats the glam factor and elegance of 50s fashions. The dresses showed off women's very best assets while the men looked more dapper than ever in their single-pleat pants and stylishly smart jackets. A 50s party wouldn't be complete with the extravagantly feathered headdresses or pretty pearl necklaces accenting form-fitting dresses that broke out into a beautiful flare. Today, 50s fashions can be seen on magazine covers featuring high-waisted swimsuits or polka-dotted dresses complemented by sweetheart necklines.

The 1950s holds one of the best eras for fashion which would explain why the glamorous and style has been revamped and incorporated into today's fashion.
