Styling a 1950’s inspired outfit with a modern twist

30 plus fashion blogger styles a 1950s inspired outfit

I do like the nineteen-fifties style fashions and would like to add a little more into my wardrobe, but for now, this is one of my favourite outfits of the style. These photos were actually taken on my birthday last year and I’ve resurfaced them to show you the outfit. If you like the 50’s era fashion, but can’t afford or find good quality vintage clothing from that decade, then putting together an outfit like this still has the right vibes, but is probably a bit more comfortable!….

The blush pink jumper is from Next. I love ruffles and I’m so glad that trend isn’t going anywhere. This line of a ruffle gives the top a bit of a modern twist to the look.

For an extra touch of prettiness, there’s also silver thread woven into the jumper for subtle sparkle and a bit of fun. Even when I grow up, I’m always going to like a little bit of sparkle!

A close-fitting jumper with a flared circle skirt is a classic 1950’s look. Rather than your usual zip fastening; this skirt is actually sewn onto a stretchy jersey waistband. This makes it very comfortable, and perfect if you’re about to have a big roast dinner, like we were!

I bought the skirt at Glastonbury Festival at a stall called Bohemia. It’s a lovely brand and when they came regularly to the festival I’d always head there to do a bit of shopping! Look out for it if you’re attending other festivals this year as otherwise it’s mail order from their website as they are based in Sweden.

It doesn’t notice from a distance, but there is a lovely floral design embroidered into the cotton of the skirt on one side. I love these details that elevate an outfit.

Although I was lucky with the weather that April, it was a still a little chilly so I wore brown leggings underneath. To be honest, the outfit would have looked better without them, but sometimes you just need to be warm!

I wore my brand new suede Converse trainers that Chris bought me for my birthday present. They’re in a beautiful blush pink colour with rose gold metal eyelets and aglets. I absolutely love them and have worn them loads since!

1950’s style dresses haul & try-on
November 27, 2016
I recently had that crisis moment when I looked into my room full of clothes and realised I had absolutely nothing to wear! I was looking for an outfit to wear to Blogfest and I had specific criteria: something that I’m going to be comfortable in all day; something that I definitely don’t look pregnant in (this was a Mumsnet event) ie. something flattering and I felt good in, and something that I felt suited my personality and style. 1950’s style dresses are something that answers these requirements, so I went on the internet and in a panic, ordered five! Three are going back, but I’m keeping two. Here’s the video I made, showing them and trying them on, so if you like this sort of style too, then hopefully it will be helpful. All the links are underneath….
