A stroll down Memory Lane is always a pleasant thing. While history is far from perfect, Memory Lane is lined with shady trees, picket fences, and perfectly mowed lawns. Of course, the past had mosquitos and overly muggy days but none of this exists on Memory Lane. People are watering their lawns and rocking on porches, it's a sweet place of bubble gum pop music and frosty cold milkshakes with cherries on top.
Here's the thing, if you're going to fit in with the Memory Lane aesthetic, you have to dress the part. Think hard about what you want your part to be, that's what the 50s are all about. Are you that quintessential housewife? Maybe you're that rebel without a cause? Or, you just might be a sweet teeny bopper. You could be going steady with the quarterback of the football team or maybe you spend your evenings leaning into the radio, swooning to Elvis's quavering voice. The uniform of the 1950s teenager was pretty darn cute: bobby socks, a high ponytail, and sweater sets. An innocent outfit for the age of innocence.
If you're headed out to that chrome and red vinyl diner then you'll look perfectly classic in this ensemble. There's nothing more picturesque than a poodle skirt in a 50s setting. These skirts are knee length and full, perfect for those impromptu swing dance sessions that we like to imagine happened regularly in the 50s. So, turn up that Elvis song and pull up your bobby socks, this stroll down Memory Lane is going to be good.
