Poodle Skirts With Saddle Shoes

If it were the 1950s, one of the hottest trends right now would be a poodle skirt with saddle shoes. Poodle skirts are these cute flared skirts that are twirl-worthy with a little poodle on a leash design. Saddle shoes are these oxford shoes that are usually black and white. This was the "it" look for girls in the 1950s. The most common version of this outfit is usually a pink skirt paired with black and white saddle shoes. Not that I know the real history of this style or how it became so popular, but I do find it to be a very fun girly outfit. As I was researching this topic, I found an interesting blog with a post about the popularity of the poodle skirt and saddle shoes look, and it somewhat explains what made the outfit popular. Check this out in case you're interested: "Poodle skirts—the origin and influence" (The Poodle and Dog Blog).

So what does the look of a poodle skirt with saddle shoes look like? I am probably not going to find a proper picture of a traditional poodle skirt with saddle shoes, so this is a costume featuring this style. Here is a picture I grabbed online (I will seek another picture if unable to use this one):

^ from: www.nostalgicstuffusa.com (best I could find) - This costume represents one of the trendiest looks of the 1950s- poodle skirts and saddle shoes. It does make for a nice costume in modern times.

I guess in today's fashion culture, a traditional poodle skirt would appeal to those who love a flared midi skirt and also like wearing oxford shoes or brogues. I'd keep the look classy with a pretty blouse or some sort of feminine top. Nothing overly sexy or daring as a top. So I wouldn't know about trying this look of a poodle skirt and saddle shoes with (for example) a cropped top of some kind.

Proudly rock some '50s chic with poodle skirts with some saddle shoes if you adore this style. I'm not overly addicted to this look, but I am surely no hater of this look.

Well, what do you think?

Do you love this classic look of poodle skirts with saddle shoes? Have you tried out this look with your outfits? How would you put your own spin on the look?
