Chapter 4


Perhaps the most flattering decade for women. The lines are close to the body, giving emphasis to the most beautiful parts of a female body, chest, waist and hips. Apart from haute couture creations, the daily outfit is becoming more comfortable and easy. Skirt's length starts below the knee and ends in the middle of the shank. The most famous colours for this decade are: pastels, black & white, polka dots and floral. In 1957, fashion has a new line, famous as "bag" which Yves Saint Laurent launches when he was working for Dior. Shoulders are loose, dominated the "bateau" neckline which is combined with weird geometric hats. In 1958, the line changed again, and the figure is trapezium. The sleeves are up to the elbow and the shoulders are baggy. The stiletto heel is established and Dupont discovers the fabric Lycra, making the women's underwear evolution. 
Here in Greece, Dimis Kritsas opens his studio giving a touch of French elegance (he had studied fashion in Paris) and later came to the light Giannis Tsopanellis and Filimonas.   

Dresses in "A" line, strapless for evening looks, klos skirts, sleeveless sweaters suited with jackets in the same colour. Dresses which have the shirts' line, coats with belts and also shorts. 

Big or small chic bags, scarves on the head, necklaces made by pearls and "butterfly" sunglasses. The gloves are a necessary accessory which suited with the shoes and the dresses or suits for a very strict outfit. Belts at the waist, chic high-heel sandals or spiky high-heels. Velvet hats.


MAKE-UP. Intense eyebrows in arc shape, eye-liner and mascara. The lipsticks are in red and orange colour. The make-up is in natural colour and the rouge is in light pink. Purple mascara, blue eye-liner and ice blue/silver or green eye shadow were some of the combinations that were existed.

Women change their hair colour and the most famous tone is blonde. The hairdos were in vague, in "banana" bun or in chignon bun on the top of the head.

1) I want to tell you that this is my favourite decade. Apart from the clothes which were amazing with gorgeous details, the women who became famous in this decade were the most beautiful, chic, stylish, increadible and unique in personality women that I know!  I wish I had the chance to live just a little the way these women lived and feel the sense of their elegance. I believe that no one can replace these amazing women...never!!

2) I'm so sorry for choosing only 4 of these perfect women to my post...they are too many and it was really difficult to include all of them in this post. Maybe, one day I will make a post only for these women, giving you more details from their life. 
Love u
