A stroll down Memory Lane is always a pleasant thing. While history is far from perfect, Memory Lane is lined with shady trees, picket fences, and perfectly mowed lawns.
Of course, the past had mosquitos and overly muggy days but none of this exists on Memory Lane. People are watering their lawns and rocking on porches, it's a sweet place of bubble gum pop music and frosty cold milkshakes with cherries on top.
Here's the thing, if you're going to fit in with the Memory Lane aesthetic, you have to dress the part. Think hard about what you want your part to be, that's what the 50s are all about.
Are you that quintessential housewife? Maybe you're that rebel without a cause?
Or, you just might be a sweet teeny bopper. You could be going steady with the quarterback of the football team or maybe you spend your evenings leaning into the radio, swooning to Elvis's quavering voice.
The uniform of the 1950s teenager was pretty darn cute: bobby socks, a high ponytail, and sweater sets. An innocent outfit for the age of innocence.
If you're headed out to that chrome and red vinyl diner then you'll look perfectly classic in this ensemble. There's nothing more picturesque than a poodle skirt in a 50s setting.
These skirts are knee length and full, perfect for those impromptu swing dance sessions that we like to imagine happened regularly in the 50s. So, turn up that Elvis song and pull up your bobby socks, this stroll down Memory Lane is going to be good.
The 1950s arent always thought of as one of the most colorful eras of American history, especially when you compare them to decades like the roaring '20s, the psychedelic 60s, or the day-glo neon 80s. But even though a lot of the days entertainment was black and white, there are still plenty of flashes of rosy color to be found in the Eisenhower era.
Whats more 50s than a pink Cadillac, for instance? Or how about the pink flamingos that started popping up in the lawns of newly built suburbs?
And every teenage fashion plate kept at least one pink poodle skirt in her wardrobe. And then you have these snazzy specs, representing the classic cat eye style in bright, bold pink.
With pointy, plastic rims and glitzy rhinestone details, theyre just the sort of eye wear you might spot on a sassy car hop, at a swingin sock hop, or out for a cruise up Blueberry Hill. Theyre a blast from the past and a splash of colorful attitude no matter what era you happen to be living in.
