Men and Womens Fashion Facts
During the 1950's women's clothes were influenced by the limited quantities of fabric, thread and needles. They wore poofy petticoats, fabulous collars, leather and the brightest, boldest colors and patterns.
Men's choices were suits for work and the Ivy League for a relaxed occasion. The suits were dark blue, dark brown, charcoal and ties that were also dark and the Ivy League look consisted of the sweater cardigan. Men also started to wear pink.
