Today's post is 50's inspired the best part about stealing this trend is that every woman can look universally flattering in a '50s style A-line skirt because the silhouette hides any problem areas in the upper legs. If you are a little more petite, try a skirt that hits above the knee to elongate your legs. If you’re taller, one to the knee or just past the knee will give you the total Marilyn Monroe-glam look.

When I think of the 1950s, Lucille Ball in polka dots immediately comes to my mind. Who doesn’t want to embody the iconic funny girl? A navy and white option above the knee and closer to the body will give this classic trend a new modern twist. The right accessories will also instantly perfect this look. Classic peep-toe pumps, a satchel bag and oversize sunglasses basically scream '50s glamour.
