30 Vintage Found Photos Show What Women Wore in the 1950s

Fashion in the 1950s saw a clear gender divide. While men and boy’s fashion moved towards a more casual day-to-day style, women and girl’s fashion prioritized elegance, formality, and perfectly matched accessories.

Couture womenswear saw rapid change with new designers such as Cristobal Balenciaga and Hubert de Givenchy disrupting the overtly feminine silhouette popularized by Christian Dior while novel prints and colors marked a playfulness in fashion for both men and women.

These vintage photos were found by Mark Susina that show what women wore in the 1950s.

  1. This was a particularly good series of photos. While the professional models are interesting to a point, the real life people and what they wore is more relevant to my world at the least. I remember so many of these outfits...not worn by me, I was a 50's baby, but those I love that have passed on all dressed like this. Sweet memories. Thank you.
