History Of Fashion From 1950 To 1959

The history of fashion from 1950 to 1959 was significant as many new trends for youths and women came up: Christian Dior ‘The New Look’, Coco Chanel and also styles by Cristobal Balenciaga.

1. The new look’s full-skirted influence brought back femininity to women’s wardrobes. Circle skirts were everywhere, including the poodle skirt which employed applique designs.

2. The history of fashion from 1950 to 1959 was about pastel-shades and pale nylon stockings. The preferred heels were printed and high.

3. For women who favoured the more gamine silhouette, the figure-hugging pencil skirt with a lower line was also back in vogue as it had been in the 1930s.

4. Britain from 1952 onwards began to catch-up on new trends. Girls wore cotton summer dresses, full skirts and matching bolero.

5. At the beach, the play-suit consisted of matching shorts, wrap over skirts and vests.

6. The history of fashion from 1950 to 1959 also saw the re-arrival of women’s suits. Coco Chanel, whose reputation faded during the 1940s, against the odds, brought them back in 1954.

7. The Chanel Suit was ambitious and bold, thus loved by women. It also provided older ladies with new ideas for their wardrobe.

8. The other favourite look was the American rockabilly T-style. Favoured by younger women, this consisted of cropped jeans, blouses and cardigans with rolled-up sleeves.

And so was the history of fashion from 1950 to 1959 with new youth fashion primarily and no doubt, the conflict of ideas, consumerism and capitalism.
