If you've ever done the hand jive then you know how much fun teens in the fifties had at their school proms. Maybe it was all the sugar from the Coca-Colas and milkshakes that made those folks such energetic dancers or it could have been produced by the hip rattling tunes of the Jukebox era. With all that dancing action, we understand why you would want to saunter down memory lane sooner or later.
You might have already attended your own prom or perhaps you're still looking forward to that memorable night, either way, you probably won't be able to reconcile the formal dance of the modern era compared with the swing dancing days of lore. Sure, prom is still memorable but there's something about spending an hour with your hair in curlers under one of those intergalactic-looking hairdryers that made a night feel more momentous. Pair that with a ride to the dance in Bobby's dad's Caddy and it wouldn't be a surprise if they made a musical about going to high school in your era in twenty years!
The changes of our time aren't all that bad: Women are busy working rather than getting their hair fried under weird looking dryers. We carry phones in our pockets rather than sharing the one mounted to the kitchen wall. Plus, there's nothing wrong with a good Nae Nae session! As a bonus, you can still dress in that fifties style! Whether you're heading to a sock hop or you're just trying out that retro feel for a night out you'll love this flower textured blue dress. You can wear your hair in curlers or opt for a beehive wig all the while feeling classic in the fitted and flared dress with its satin waist sash. Who knows, once you start swinging you might even forget that we live in the age of the internet!
