A Blast to the Past: Current 50’s Trends

Let’s bring back that Old Hollywood glam with a head scarf, circle skirt, and Mary Jane pumps.

The vintage head scarf was commonly seen on housewives and women of the 50s. Today, this accessory makes a cute statement, and is an easy way to fix a bad hair day!

The waistband will make your waist appear smaller, and the flare of the skirt will mask any stomach imperfections. It’s a flattering style for any woman, of any shape. This style originated from Dior’s New Look trend in the 50s. I paired this with Mary Jane pumps and round frame sunglasses, which are also iconic vintage trends still seen today.diorphoto:shasheyfashionhistory.blogspot.ca/2013/03/1940s1950s.html

I enjoy Giambattista Valli’s take on 50s glam. His Fall 2014 couture runway show consist of beautiful dresses that resemble the silhouette of the flared circle skirt. The models wore headscarves, and round frame sunglasses, displaying that 50s accessories can be revamped!
