"Styles were shapeless," they

"Styles were shapeless," they took into consideration a woman's
body. Wearing something tight and too fitted doesn't look good on a 20 yr old. (Lauren Bacall aged gracefully).
"colors were drab,". and you're showing black and white? Ahhhh. Loved the gloves in the 50's pic - classy.
"and the choices were ridiculously limited." Natural fabrics: cotton, linen, Italian wool, silk, very limiting indeed.
" Hats kept that wash-and-set ’do in place." Don't make fun of that. It's too bad hats have phased out. And there is a polish to the woman. Now maybe the girdle thing has been improved, but the look is classic.

If this was the standard it was timeless. The fashion suggestions are ridiculous. The fashion in the 50's was classy, vs today's trashy. No one should ever ever wear a shear blouse without something underneath it. And the trends for 30 year olds? Well, I'm 57 and there were a few cute items.
I find nothing boring about the classics. It was a time when little girls looked like classy little girls instead of little tramps.
This is supposed to be a magazine - I'm guessing - for the aging boomers. They've lost me.Source: www.more.com
