Following the Second World War, fashion became available to a wider population for the first time as mass-production clothing filled stores and televisions and other media outlets relayed what the rich and famous wore on a daily basis. With this increase in popular culture consumption came an increase in consumer consumption, and styles and fashions changed quickly in the 1950s and 1960s. This colorful, captivating volume details how men and women dressed in their daily lives and for special occasions. Engaging sidebars and ample full-color photographs and illustrations give readers an accurate, detailed picture of the styles that were all the rage in post-war America and the years beyond. Chapters of this title include: A New Era; Women's Day Wear; Men's Day Wear; Women's Formal and Evening Dress; Men's Formal and Evening Dress; Time Off - Leisure Wear; Work Wear and Uniforms; and, Completing the Look.
