One style of dress in the 1950's was the full skirted style. These dresses often had matching fabric belts & very slim waistlines. Popular fabric choices were cotton with a floral print. In contrast to the full skirted dress was the straight sheath or hourglass dress. Straight sheath dresses were princess seamed & were sleeveless or had capped sleeves. Prom dresses were all the rage in the 1950's. Net and nylon hoop crinoline style petticoats were produced to support the full 1950's bouffant skirts.
Poodle designs, Eiffel tower designs, hand painting and cute kittens were often on fifties skirts, blouses and scarves. Hence the term, Poodle Skirt. The 1950's also saw cardigans, sweaters, designer bags & costume jewelery as popular choices.
Later in the decade came the shirtwaist dresses. Shirt styles were put on the waist of either a straight or full skirt making the shirtwaist dress. This style of dress had three-quarter length sleeves with turn back cuffs. The shirtwaist dress was suits were also popular. This outfit consisted of a jacket that flared over the hips with a calf length narrow skirt. In the late 50's the skirts started getting shorter.
Clothing styles in the 50's were very feminine and designed to remind women they were women.
