Women’s 1950s jackets and 50s coats are classic styles that never go out of fashion. 50s coats come in the swing coat, swagger coat, cape coat, trench coat, long coat, half topper, raincoat and suit coats. Tweed, wool, velvet, velour, camelhair and real or fake fur were the most popular fabrics.
Sleek and streamlined to match the sophisticated look of ’50s fashion dresses and suits, these coats had minimal details. Fur collars and large round buttons were often the only touches of femininity. The 1950s princess coat or vintage swing coat nipped in at the waist and flared out over full swing skirts and dresses in the early 50s. Read about the history of vintage 1950s coats here.
