But it doesn't matter, there's plenty of high-street and online shops selling clothing that nod to past looks. And I have a 'talent' for mentally cataloguing all the clothes I see, so to finally put this 'gift' to some use!
So, today I'm looking at high-waisted jeans. These are not only pretty flattering, but they're reminiscent of 1950s day-time style and those typical of the era tended to be dark denim, in a straight but tapered leg and were often rolled up into cuffs. They usually did up at the side, but front-button was also around and you'd perhaps find a belt cinching that waist in a bit further. Here's some examples worn by these lovely ladies...
|Miss Selfridge, Indigo High Waisted Jeans, £40|
|Dorothy Perkins Indigo highwaisted skinny jeans, £21 (down from £30)|
|Collectif, Rebel Kate Denim Trousers, £35|
|20th Century Foxy, Swing Jeans, £49|
|Freddies of Pinewood, Classic Indigo, £48|
And this (again bad quality) photo shows me wearing the aforementioned Miss Selfridge jeans - which I hope at least demonstrates that with the right styling can help pull together a 50's day look (I'm wearing with an old Dorothy Perkins black and white striped shirt and Office Macaroon leopard print pumps and, of course, bright red lipstick).
