50s Style Inspiration


This week we have a guest post written by Sarah Oxley on behalf of Asos Marketplace, the online portal to boutiques and styles of all vintage eras. Take it away, Sarah!

This summer 50s style dresses are a great option for the vintage fan, as their versatility in looks makes them so desirable. Here are some of the 50s style dresses, which are trending on the Asos Marketplace and which can give you some great style inspiration this summer:


1. Dolce Vita Chic
This dress is an early 50s (and late 40s) style Dolores pencil dress. With its gypsy style puff sleeves and figure hugging fit, this dress is an instant winner for vintage lovers.


2. Rockabilly Polka Dot
This classic rockabilly polka dot dress has been given a twist with the orange colour, but it’s still classic 50s. The black petticoat just peeking out below the hemline adds that extra vintage flair.


3. Classic Sundress
No 50s style collection would be complete without the classic 50s sundress. The pearls add that desired classic chic feel to the outfit.


4. Bold Broidere Anglaise
This Broidere Anglaise dress is a 50s alternative to the classic sundress. The stunning turquoise really stands out, and the style of this dress opens up many accessory options for different looks.

Do you have a favourite 50s style dress?
