MID CENTURY STYLE: 40's, 50's, AND 60's

Let's talk fashion!  Mid century style of the 40's, 50's, and 60's.

 Today, I'm going to let the pictures do most of the talking.  Let's begin with the 1940's.


Attention to detail was important in 40's fashion, especially for collars and sleeves.

The two piece skirt suit reigned supreme.

Casual feminine day wear.

I love everything about this.  Her hair style is classic 40's; long with looses curls, parted on the side.

Notice how manicured her eyebrows are....very 40's.

                                   Authentic 1950's
Skirts became much fuller in the 50's and hairstyles tended to be shorter.

Has anyone ever looked cuter in a 1950's inspired dress?

It's all there.

Do I even have to tell you how much I love this picture?  LOVE.
 In the 60's, skirts became shorter (sometimes much shorter) and tighter.  Shoes had lower heels and makeup was either extreme or barely there.
Every ones favorite 60's vixen.

Hot pants!  Oh, those rebellious 60's.
                                      1960's modern interpretation

 I'm not quite certain if the picture below is authentic or modern, but I would absolutely wear this outfit.  Would you?  What's your favorite mid century style?
Have a beautiful day.
