Get the Look: Fabulous Fifties

By admin on August 30th, 2007 0 comments yet. Be the First

Fashion loves a little retro and what better time to look back to than the 1950s – the era of full circle skirts, neat waists and full-on red lippie. Don’t go the whole hog for the trend though, pick the elements that suit you best and make sure you go for great polka dotted dresses for your bridesmaids to really maximise the look. Ignoring that this model looks like she has escaped from an asylum, select a dress with a broad collar, sweet bow and a calf length semi-full skirt that will flatter slimmer girls who can’t pull off the big skirted look.

Add a pretty as a picture eyelet cotton clutch with detachable flower pin from Myna Anastacia to carry all your essentials, a pair of open toed sandals with a ribbon and square bow detail and finally add a simple pair of pearl studs to complete the look.

Dress – ‘Camellia’ at Catherine Davighi.

Bag – Myna Anastacia, £45 at Lily Wigglesworth.

Shoes – ‘Dawn’ from the Pink by Paradox collection, £39.95 at Girls of Elegance.

Earrings: 9ct gold stud pearl earrings, £50 at Ernest Jones.
