Timeless 1950s Trends


Are you ready to explore the trendy fashion of the 50s? From makeup to hairstyles, the beauty trends of the yesteryears are still very much in vogue!

Iconic movie stars, awesome movies, and timeless fashion are just some of the countless things that the 1950’s is known for. The 50s-style represented grace and class, especially when it concerned makeup and hairstyle. 



During those good old days, it was all about having a soft feminine look. This was the time when women wore reddish pink lipstick, curled hair, rosy cheeks, and defined eyebrows. Many celebrities have embraced the makeup style of the 50’s in recent years, and have been rightly able to make it look modern. If you want a retro-fabulous look, simply go for a satin-finish or matte lipstick. And do not forget to keep your lips lined up for the vintage vibe.


Hair in the 50’s was perfectly coiffed and flawless, and this matched well with the ultra-precision makeup looks of those years. Now you can easily add retro hair styles flawlessly into your actual lifestyle with rolled bangs. Pompadour, and soft curls.

The birth of the high-octane Rock ‘n’ Roll and Rockabilly was marked during the 50’s. This was certainly a decade that changed the world thanks to music. It was also the years where great music genres were created such as funk, Motown, and soul music.



What a great time the 1950s was for both men’s and women’s hats. The Trilby or Fedora hat was kept in style by stars such as Frank Sinatra. Straw hats and porkpie hats are still trendy hats from that era. Plus, in the 50’s, hats were almost worn every day by women. They could be very little or very large. Some of the large hats were the lampshade, bucket and flying saucer hats while the tea hats and pillbox hats were the smaller versions.



The most popular style for sunglasses during those years was the cat-eye shape. These had colourful plastic rims along with some sparkle in its corners. Other trendy shapes for sunglasses were classic round, heart, square and triangle. And one of the most popular for women remains the horn rim nerd eyeglasses and sunglasses.
