Today some fashion photos and ads from the August 1951 issue of the Australian Women's Weekly magazine. These look like wrap capri pants - I just love the turned up cuff.
Interestingly August is still winter in Australia, but many of the articles and ads feature summer clothes.
Oh, give me some of that'youthful separation' please!
I think I
need want this whole ensemble.
Some more American mannequins - we loved US models in the 50s.
So nice to see flat sandals on a bathing suit spread rather than high heels - but as for that hat!
