Style/Trend

The 1940’s and 50’s saw a very specific clothing style and silhouette for women. This era was all about tight fitting dresses, high-waisted pants which flared out at the bottom, tea dresses which are available in anything from floral to brightly coloured hues and other vintage style dresses and skirts. Skirts as a rule would always fall at the knee and suit skirts would always be in an A-line style. This means that they gradually become wider from the hip to the knee. Pleats and pockets are other features of these vintage skirts as well as plaids, stripes, floral and food designs. Women’s retro trousers were high waisted and flared and often worn as a casual look though they can easily be dressed up with the right top or shoes.

Maggie Ann Vintage has an exciting selection of 1940’s and 50’s retro inspired clothes from different brands such as Hell Bunny, Pretty Retro and Banned. The tea dresses from Pretty Retro are a firm favourite with many vintage clothing lovers young and old. The dress has a flatter shape and features a sweetheart style neckline which gathers at the bustline and pulls in to a beautiful sweetheart shape. This is achieved by using clever fabric ties at each side of the dress. This dress comes in a range of adorable colours and prints and can easily be dressed up or down when paired with the right accessories. For those that prefer the classic pin-up look the Pretty Retro 1950’s wiggle dress is the perfect choice. If you like demure, circular skirts with a bit of oomph, the rockability jive skirt is an excellent choice. This skirt is bang on 1940’s circa trend and comes in a great choice of designs including one which features vintage record and music notes on a red background.
