Fashion trends come and go (MC Hammer pants, anyone?), but there's one era responsible for producing some timeless silhouettes: the '50s.
Clean, classic, and unassumingly sexy, pieces like these should have a presence in every gal's wardrobe. And with the retro influence we're seeing this season, you need not go thrifting to score a look reminiscent of an old Hollywood starlet. From a time-honored LBD to the perfect pump, pick up one (or several!) of these 20 staples, and you'll be made in the shade no matter where you're headed.
