TBT: Classic Summer Looks

Untitled #635

Like most women I love to recreate some of the Classic Hollywood looks by finding current items similar to the ones in the past. 
When I was looking at a  lot of the fashion trending for Spring and Summer 2015, I realized of lot of those trends can be traced back to the 1940 and 1950s.  Most people only see the 1970s as inspiration for looks this summer. But the 1970s was influenced by some looks in the 1940s and the 50s. Can you guess which items trending now can be traced back to the 1940s and 1950s?
