50's Cocktail Dress
We’re not talking about old fashioneds or sloe gin fizzes. This refers to the most famous and flattering dress of the 1950s—the cocktail dress.
Historically, the cocktail dress itself has never been defined by any specific cut or shape.
Fun has always superseded labels or convention.
The 50s version possessed arguably the most flattering bodice of the last 70 years—the crossover V-neck, finished with an hourglass-accentuating cummerbund waist that gave way to a full voluminous skirt (no wonder people loved to swing).
So go, have a ball, and at the very least, you’ve got something memorable to spill your drink on.
