What clothes did the sex symbol of the 50s wear?

The American actress, model, singer and film producer Marilyn Monroe always looked sophisticated and elegant, both in an evening dress and in a casual outfit. Her wardrobe was dominated by silhouettes with an emphasis on the neckline. After all, the celebrity wanted to emphasize her naturally curvaceous bust and waspish waist, for which she removed her ribs.

Marilyn has become a style icon of her time, and some of her fashion techniques have not lost their relevance today. Read more about them in the OBOZREVATEL article.

1. Jeans and shirt

Monroe often wore long sleeves, tops, as well as loose-fitting shirts and blouses, which she styled with high-waisted jeans. She complemented these looks with her signature red lipstick and black sunglasses. The celebrity wore sneakers or elegant sandals on her feet.

2. Emphasized waistline

In the twentieth century, star beauties sought to have a pear-shaped figure. Marilyn is no exception. For this purpose, she wore belts and corsets, as well as monochrome clothes and things in a classic palette (white, black, pastel) that emphasized her natural curves and elongated her silhouette.

3. Heels are everywhere and always

In an interview, the movie star jokingly said: "Give a woman a pair of great shoes and she will conquer the world." It seems to work. After all, Marilyn often walked the red carpet and appeared in movies in pumps or minimalist sandals, which added a special charm to her.

5. Elements of men's style

Even in men's clothes, the actress remained feminine and elegant. In contrast to the voluminous denim jacket or oversized sweater, her figure looked even more fragile. The secret is that even for such outfits, Marilyn wore bright makeup.
