Ladies Fashion Inspiration: The '50s, A Timeless Decade

It was a time ruled by not a Hilton or Kardashian, but Marilyn Monroe and Lucille Ball. Exuding the beauty, class and elegance of the ‘50s, fashion power houses like Louis Vuitton, Oscar de la Renta and Prada echo classic looks from the timeless decade. 

Designers and stylists emphasize tiny waists with belts or ribbon to succeed the ladylike looks of Michelle Williams (in Oscar de la Renta) and Carey Mulligan (in Prada) below. 

Weather it’s de la Renta or a combination of items from various thrift stores, there’s a gazillion ways to achieve to look of your ‘50s hero. It’s all about incorporating inspiration from yesteryear with todays vibrations.
