Throwback Monday: Bring Back The 1950s With These 13 Pieces

Full skirts, shirtdresses, and nipped waists — the 1950s were all about the New Look. And as much as we love the so-femme silhouettes, we'll readily admit that vintage dressing can look a bit too costume-y. Now, we know you guys feel the same, so we've dug through our favorite retailers to find modern iterations of classic '50s styles that look anything but a leftover Ricky's Halloween outfit.
From a flared dress with a sweet bow detail in the back that would be the perfect first-date outfit to a pleated, full skirt that would pair well with a simple tee, these 13 picks will have you looking like a retro babe in no time.
