4 home interiors in 1940s-60s designs in home and kitchen appliances were popular in colours of the robin's-egg-blue phase of 1950s kitchen appliances. As far as interior decoration went, the 1950s were all about modernity. The War was over, rationing was a thing of the past and it was time to dispense with everything old-fashioned and embrace the new. The look was sleek and colourful with clean lines and a touch of whimsy, in a reaction to the plain, solid look of the 30s and 40s. Scientific progress had made plastics and synthetic fabrics available at affordable prices, and these were embraced enthusiastically by homeowners.

5 Toys in a lot of toys were made of hard plastics with bright colours. Other toys were metal and could be wound up to work.

6 Fashion 1950s Throughout the 1950s, young women's clothing was also influenced by the rock 'n' roll craze. Full skirts in bright colours become popular for dancing and skirts and pants were pinched in at the waist to emphasise the waist and bust. Young women also wore tight-fitting blouses tucked into slim-line calf-length trousers called 'Capri' pants or 'pedal pushers'. Short ankle socks, scarves tied around the neck and cropped cardigans were also popular. Menswear in the 1950s Adult men's fashion in the 1950s was largely quiet and conservative, which somewhat widened the generation gap between older men and the daringly dressed younger generation. Mature menswear in the 1950s mostly featured plain fabrics in dark, muted shades like blue, brown and grey.

7 Fashion in the 1950s Ladies wear in the 1950s
Movie star fashion influenced the clothing styles of ladies in the 1950s. Screen goddesses like Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly inspired tiny waistlines and full skirts and busts. Slim pencil-line skirts were also popular. Stiletto-heeled shoes emerged in the early 1950s and shoes could be bought in a variety of colours to match any outfit. New materials in the 1950s The 1950s saw the introduction of a new range of synthetic clothing materials like nylon, acrylic polyester and vinyl. These fabrics were especially appealing to women because they were easy to wash, dried quickly and did not crease or require ironing.
