THE ’ 50S Affair
is back! With nearly every decade getting a bit of the spotlight this season, it’s no surprise that the good girls of the ’50s take their turn on the catwalks. Beautifully tailored dresses in borrowed-from-the-bouquet pastel hues, below-the-knee skirts, and Christian Dior’s classic cinched waists and full skirts make a sweet impact. But if pleated skirts and streamlined pencil dresses don’t make the cut for you, try more modern versions of the trend. Think glossy leathers, Prada’s hot-rod prints, or Francesco Scognamiglio’s sheer skirt suits. Top off your all-american retro look with a cool cat-eye.
