Fifties Fashions

The postwar 50's signaled a return to prosperity and the American dream. The styles of the "Grease" era reigned - Poodle Skirts, leather jackets, saddle shoes, wingtips, cats eye glasses and letter sweaters. For young folks, bowling, soda shops and sock hops were big! On the opposite side of the fashion spectrum the sophisticated fashions of the 50's movie stars like Marilyn Monroe.

Grease costumes, poodle skirts, crinolines, skinny ties and movie star glamour - cultural icons like Elvis, James Dean, the Honeymooners and I Love Lucy. Fashions and accessories of the Fifties, for men, women and children.
