Bettie Page Clothing – Everlasting Inspiration

Winter is not typically the most fashionable time of year. Stylish outfits are covered by heavy, shapeless coats most of the time, and ensembles tend to favor warmth over aesthetics. Women are forced to forgo showing their legs and cleavage. Thick fabrics make slinky silhouettes look cumbersome. Figuring out how to look feminine during cold spells can be quite difficult.

One way to maintain a womanly appearance in cold weather is to incorporate items from Bettie Page Clothing into one’s wardrobe. Inspired by the pin-up icon, this shop specializes in retro glamor.

50s dresses – History and Evolution

The trajectory of fashion from the 1800s to today has seen many phases. One of the more interesting time periods is the 1950s, which has always remained popular for those inclined toward retro dressing. For the most part, fashion in the 1950s saw the return of French haute couture. Take for example, the 50s dresses.

Origin

The start of what became the “New Look” in dress fashion is said to have begun in 1947 by Christian Dior. This pertained to full skirts, below mid calf lengths (15 to 17 inches off the ground), a small waistline, pointed bust and rounded shoulders. This look for dresses became popular after WWII. At first not well received by Americans, the style quickly became a new trend thanks to popular fashion magazines such as Vogue.
