Nothing says vintage fashion quite like a 1950s cardigan sweater (a 1950s jumper if you’re in the UK) or a layered twin sweater set. Soft knit, cropped waist 50s sweaters with pretty beaded or embroidered embellishments are hot vintage collectibles today. Layer a 50s cardigan over a snug fitting blouse or knit top and pair it with a swing skirt or capri pants for a classic 1950s fashion look. Modern pin ups and rockabilly girls often wear a vintage crop cardigan sweater with a peek-a-boo bustline. This silhouette shows off your curves in all the right ways.
