Anyway do you think womens fashions which is called the New Look will return? I believe the fashion sense then appeared to have more emphasis on glamour than on any other fashion period in the 20th century. What do you think?

The thing with going retro, women may try to dress like Audrey Hepburn, but they don't have an ounce of the class she had.

It already is coming back, if you ask me. I don't just mean "retro" fabrics and patterns either, a lot of designers are favouring the sillhouettes that were common from that period. Classic elegance.

I admire much of the fashion of the 40's, and some of the 50's.
The old school undergarments, not so much.

A lot of Hepburn-esque fashion is and has been back in style: cigarette pants, capris, A-line skirts, flats, cardigans, etc, have all been in stores in the past few years.

I hope those styles come back...they were beautiful/ Problem now is "women" aren't as slim, in general....fabrics aren't the same. When was the last time you could pronounce the name of the material your clothes were made of. In the 40-50's it was cotton, silk and wool....now it is recycled bottle caps/ poly------ whatever. It is sad.

Even if you go to Sak's and buy a designer wool suit...bet the buttons will poop in a year!
I saw bring back the past glamour!

Fashion always recycles....but it always has it's own signature in it's own decade. Maybe it'll be Garbo Ghetto.

I barely remember the '40's but do remember the 50's. During WWII the emphasis for women was on sex appeal for sure. I say bring it back! The women were womanly during that time and not the sad sacks that has been around since the 80's. I love shoulder pads, cinched waists, feminine wavy hair...very sexy really.

I remember the 50's when i was a kid' Alot had changed.Woaen were always dressed to go shopping where I lived. We kids had school clothes that you changed when you got home and always polished shoes. When we eat out we also dressed in our best clothes as did our parents.Tennis shoes were for play. bascailly the dress was much more formal that I remember for any occasion. Growing kids unsually wore a white shirt and tie and dress slacks because of the cost of providing more than one at a time.Now days with the relaxed standards of what is exceptable I doubt it really.
