Party dress decoration could either be very minimal with a little glass beading around the neckline, or fully covered in sequins. Fabric was bunched and draped in interesting patterns around the bodice and sometimes in the skirt as well.
Most dresses had a wide sash band or thin belt in the same material as the dress. They are full skirts, often worn with petticoats, with tight fitted bodices, and either short cap sleeves or no sleeves at all. The sleeveless dress was a new invention in the 1950s and women embraced the fashion. The circle dress shape was the choice dress for housewives and casual office workers worn without thick petticoats.However for evening wear the dresses were dressed up with nicer materials and prettier decorations and usually had very several puffy petticoats underneath. For very special formal wear these full skirted dresses were longer and with larger amounts of tulle. These dresses were a bit shorter and very slim around the body. The terms wiggle dress or pencil dress describe sheath dresses although these variations are tighter than ’50s dresses were. The idea was to make an nice high waisted hour glass shape yet still be able to walk and sit in them. Today the sheath style dress is very common for cocktail attire.
