The 50s rockabilly style dresses bring a charming touch of the past into everyday life. They are most often with wide straps that cross at the nape of the neck and a neckline in the heart. In solid colors, with polka dots and sometimes with floral motifs, these romantic dresses are perfect to wear during the first date! This summer, stylists opt for cut-style dresses that subtly emphasize feminine curves and what’s prettier than a tight-fitting bustier dress with a flared skirt?
What colors for 50s dresses?
The absolute classics are the 50s dresses in navy blue and red, but nowadays, any type of interpretation is possible! With polka dots or plain, they impress with their vintage style and their relaxed spirit. Those in plain white or black are also very pretty and appropriate especially for special occasions. The multicolored 50s floral dresses, with their romantic style, are perfect for summer walks. Dresses that are plain and not too flared, or too revealing in light green, peachy or fresh coral can even be worn in the office.
What accessories to add?
As for the accessories that go well with 50s dresses, the golden rule is still in effect – do not overdo it! Especially for special occasions and when you have chosen a floral pattern in many colors, abusing accessories can turn us into a mobile circus. Combine 50s dresses with platform sandals, ankle boots or open toe shoes. A bandana in the hair, a pair of glasses or a chic necklace for formal occasions – that’s quite enough.
