Polka dot dresses–did they originate with the polka dance craze that swept the country during the 19th century? Hmmm, maybe Christian Dior and his 1947 line of clothes did not originate the polka dot. The cheerful dots were on everything from evening wear to sun dresses to children’s clothes.
The 1950’s sweater cannot be ignored. With the tight sweaters the breasts were emphasized by the conical pointed bra which is very different from the rounded silhouette of today. Tight fitting sweaters and pencil skirts were an undeniable fashion statement. They were accompanied by shoes called flats, a ballet type slipper shoe.
Men’s fashions and baseball are coming soon.
