Christina Larard's insight:

I liked how this website was on the mens fashion as most things you find on this fashion is about women. We find out how men got there idea's for fashion from things like ;cinema, musix and youngs men's fashion. 

Adult men's fashion in the 1950s was largely quiet and conservative, which somewhat widened the generation gap between older men and the daringly dressed younger generation. Mature menswear in the 1950s mostly featured plain fabrics in dark, muted shades like blue, brown and grey. This website thouh still writes a little about the womens fashion which i wasn't really looking for, but all in all i think it was very informative.

Fashion 1950-1959

Christina Larard's insight:

The origins of 1950s fashion began with Christian Dior’s “New Look". This is an artical that states how the fashion of this era, came to be the icon it was. I found that this website was very insightful. Although it did not have much information it was infact good information making it easy to understand. It outlines the differnt fashion approaches and how all the skirts, shirts, dresses. etc, worked and how they looked. An example of this is when the author writes; a tailored, feminine look with gloves and pearls, tailored suits with fitted jackets with peplums, with a pencil skirt.  Day dresses had fitted bodices and full skirts, with jewel or low-cut necklines or Peter Pan collars.  Shirt-dresses and halter-top sundresses were also popular.  Skirts were narrow or very full, held out with petticoats, while poodle skirts were a brief fad.  Gowns were often the same length as day dresses with full, frothy skirts, and cocktail dresses were worn for early-evening parties.  Short shrugs and bolero jackets were often made to match low-cut dresses. I really liked what this website had to offer interms of information and dress styles.

Christina Larard's insight:

This fashion was greatly influenced by the world war two. People had become custom to living in problems and simple costume. This artical states that wool became typically worn by all men and it was thought to be pulled of in great style. Everything whether it was your tie, wastcoat or pants, 'wool was cool'. the decade saw the emerging of denim. THe teenagers of this era were taking risks and pushing the fashion.
