Our 1950’s Fashions

The 1950’s was a time of great change in the United States. Technology was a bringing us new inventions such as the credit card, the ballpoint pen, photocopy machine, and Sputnik 1. Television was probably the most important invention. If you had a television you were the neatest kid on the block, even if there was nothing much of interest playing. New music was on the horizon bringing a whole new mode of dance and along with that new fashions.  Of course those ever-changing fashions were making a dramatic turn. The younger crowd was wearing full circle or pencil skirts, saddle shoes with socks, sweater twins with the tucked in peter pan collars. The cocktail hour was popular among the more affluent and with it came the cocktail dress and of course the little head hugging cocktail hat. 

There was a wide range of 1950’s fashions for every station in life and every event. The Vintage Reflections Group is happy to present our vintage finds from life in the 1950’s.
