Style icons of the 50s and 60s: get inspired and invite your child to the great world of fashion.

Between the 50s and 60s, after the difficult time of the war, the blooming period of femininity began. Women rejected men’s shirts, windbreakers and boots to start a new era of finesse, elegance and subtlety. All stark clothes with no subtlety or romance got at the bottom drawers of women’s wardrobes.

However, those beautiful clothes in geometric and floral patterns, polka-dot skirts and A-shaped colorful dresses were not off-the-shelve. In the early 50s fashion was a privilege for the lucky few. The well-known designers like Hubert de Givenchy, Christian Dior, Cristobal Balenciaga and Coco Chanel made single pieces of clothing for their muses and millions of girls around the world tried to imitate the style of Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy, Grace Kelly and Twiggy Lawson who are considered style icons to this day.

Audrey Hepburn – comfortable minimalism

Hubert de Givenchy – a designer, whose muse was Audrey, said: ‘There is not a woman alive who does not want to look like Audrey Hepburn’. Even for glamorous occasions Audrey chose simple but elegant dresses in soft colours and in her everyday style she preferred black and white. Hepburn went for tight leggings, ballet flats, minimalist and geometric dresses, but she always chose the highest quality clothes being aware that regardless of the form and pattern, only good quality would allow her feel comfortable and beautiful.

Grace Kelly – loosen classic

Grace Kelly is a true style icon. She looked equally perfect in the ballroom dress and in everyday clothes. Like Audrey Hepburn, Grace preferred neutral colors, choosing mostly black and white, but during the day she allowed herself a bit more vivid colors. Her trick was to combine a tight top with looser bottom and conversely. In her free time she chose loose dresses and skirts, flat shoes and high-quality materials, including cashmere and silk.

Jackie Kennedy – natural elegance

Daily wardrobe of the wife of the 35th President of the United States was based on simple A-shaped dresses, bright colors and geometric patterns. She prefered low-heeled shoes, ballerinas or sandals. Her clothing and accessories were covered with lozenges, stripes, squares and dots in a particularly fashionable in the 60s black and white combination.

Twiggy Lawson – girlish charm

Thanks to her delicate figure Twiggy started the trend for short skirts and loose dresses. She wore above the knee or mini dresses that were narrower at the top and flared out downward. Lawson, unlike Jackie Kennedy, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn was associated with warm and spring colors, but she also liked geometric patterns.
