Dreamboats and Petticoats

Sunday, 7 August 2011

As the hit musical ‘Dreamboats and Petticoats’ hits the West End London, critics have gone wild for 50’s and 60’s fashion. It was a time of innocence and fun, which was both reflected in the fashion and the music of the swinging decade.

Its fashion even your granny will adore, and will snare you an armful of admirers, all willing to take you to the local American diner for a shake.

It’s girly, flirty, fun and feminine all at the same time. Begin by choosing a flattering halter neck top with a sweetheart neckline. If you’re feeling sexy you could shimmy your way into a skin tight pencil skirt, and finish with a waist belt to create a full hour glass figure.

For a more casual look, denim pedal pushers and a cropped sleeveless shirt teamed with flirty high heel pumps makes a great look. Accessorise with a chic neck tie and shades.

If you’re off to the hop or twisting the night away you can’t go wrong with a full petticoat and an all in one swishy dress. Polka dots are a great choice of print and bows, cute ankle socks and pearls help to complete your retro look.

Set your rollers to work, as no self respecting 60’s girl would set foot outside her door with flat lifeless hair. Backcomb your locks for extra bounce and finish with a slick of red lipstick
