Vintage 50s blouses come in a huge variety of different styles, prints and colors, which is probably why I love them so much. Whether you’re looking for a smart pretty blouse to wear to the office, a rockabilly shirt to wear with capri pants and a pony tail, or some Mad Men style glamor: a genuine 1950s blouse will take you there.
Whether you prefer sheer lace or a more preppy look, the tailoring of a 50s vintage blouse will look great in the workplace. Team a blouse with a smart pencil skirt and you’ll look fabulous!
Bold and Bright Prints
No decade enjoyed bold prints and bright colors the way the 50s did!
Get inspired by the Pink Ladies and grab yourself a pencil skirt or pair of cropped jeans to wear with one of these Rockabilly style 50s blouses. If you’ve got the abs for it tie your shirt at the waist to catch some of the spring sunshine!
Glamorous and elegant, this is the 50s blouse at it’s most sophisticated. Neutral tones of gold and yellow work brilliantly with tweed, leather or even denim!
I wrote a guest post a few days ago on Va-Voom Vintage which I thought you might like to read: it’s all about different ways to wear a vintage 1950s dress. Take a look and let me know what you think. How would you wear the dresses I picked?
How on earth do you beat the heat and yet stay stylish this summer? In vintage of course!
I’ve picked my top 10 vintage summer dresses for staying cool this summer, they range from 60s maxi dresses, to cool classic 50s sundresses and original 1940s day dresses. Which is your favorite? I particularly love the orange outfit which I think would look amazing on Lady Edith from Downton Abbey (even though its vintage 1940s rather than 1920s!)
