The 1950s is a decade that has always been looked back on with nostalgia

The 1950s is a decade that has always been looked back on with nostalgia, as things were more simple then than they are now.

One of the best things about the 1950s was the fashion trends for women. Back then, being elegant and dressing with class was considered to be “in.” That’s why we’ve compiled five fashion trends from the 1950s that we’d love to see make a comeback!

1950s Style Dresses for Women

A-line dresses and skirts were all the rage in the 1950s. This fashion trend was flirty and yet, exudes a classy look. Women wore A-line dresses and skirts for almost any occasion, as they can be dressed up with accessories and heels for an evening out, or simply worn around the house with flats for a casual day at home.

1950s Style Capri Pants

Populated by Mary Tyler Moore on “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and legendary movie star, Audrey Hepburn in “Roman Holiday,” capri pants were a major hit with the ladies. Women everywhere found these pants to be a comfortable alternative to dresses while still maintaining their fashion sensibilities.
1950s Scarf and Sunglasses

It’s rare to see women wearing scarves like this today, but in the 1950s, it was considered to be an elegantly fashionable way to maintain hairstyles when out in public. We think the women of today would look just as good in this combination!
1950s Rockabilly Style

Here’s something that men can get in on as well. With the rise of stars like Elvis Presley, the 1950s were a time when country music and rock music fused together, as did the fashion of these two genres. Men would slick their hair back, while women had their hair in ponytails with curled bangs and a scarf around their neck.
1950s Style Bathing Suit

Finally, there were the unforgettable swimsuits of the 1950s. They were very flattering while also being conservative. They allow a woman to be sexy while remaining a bit covered up, and we’d love to see them make a comeback!
