This latest addition to Dover's popular series of books on fashions as reflected in the pages of Sears catalogs provides a comprehensive view of what middle-class people were wearing in the comparatively tranquil decade of the 1950s. JoAnne Olian, former curator of the costume collection at the Museum of the City of New York, has selected over 300 black-and-white illustrations chronicling apparel worn during the casual, fun-loving postwar years. Here are one-piece, strapless bathing suits and dresses with plunging necklines for women; business suits with wide lapels — and equally wide ties — for men; bluejeans, plaid shirts, and full, knee-length skirts for girls; fringed cowboy outfits for youngsters of both genders, and much more. Fashion historians and fans of the fifties will delight in this collection, complete with prices ($1.88 for a silk tie!), sizes, descriptions, and more.

Original selection of pages from Sears Catalogs, 1950-1959.
