3 items of clothing that were a hit in the times of the People’s Republic of Poland. Our mothers and grandmothers wore them. They’re still hot

In the times of the People’s Republic of Poland, the world of fashion was a way of escaping oppression for women. Polish women followed the fashion from the West, although due to poverty and empty shelves it was not easy. However, creativity helped them. Clothes from those times are fashionable to this day.

Fashion in the times of the People’s Republic of Poland was not boring and gray at all. Colorful and expressive clothing sometimes constituted opposition to the oppressive system. PRL fashion was modeled on trends straight from Paris. American and Italian influences were also noticeable. In 1958, the “Moda Polska” company was founded, which was to set trends in fashion. Although the prices of clothes were terrifyingly high, every major city wanted to have its own “Polish Fashion” salon. Some trends from the communist era have stayed with us until now. Our mothers and grandmothers certainly had these clothes in their wardrobes.

Fashion straight from the times of the People’s Republic of Poland. Women’s jacket

In the early 1930s, the fashion for women’s trousers began to be promoted. Their wearing was quite controversial at first. One of the pioneers of the women’s suit was Marlene Dietrichwhich appeared in it in the 1933 issue of American Vogue. However, it did not penetrate into everyday use until the 1960s.

In the times of the People’s Republic of Poland, a women’s jacket became an obligatory element of the wardrobe of all fashion lovers. Initially, models with shoulder pads were the most popular. Styling with a jacket in the main role was to reflect the character of strong and self-confident women. Jackets were worn not only in combination with suit trousers, but also with jeans or shorts. Currently, they are also one of the most worn elements of women’s styling. They are valued for their elegance, but also for their versatility.

Trends from the People’s Republic of Poland. Patterned dresses

In the period of the People’s Republic of Poland, despite financial difficulties, propaganda or empty shelves, Polish women wanted to stay in the trend of the trends prevailing in the West. Fashion took surprisingly bold forms. Women showed great creativity and altered their clothes. Patterned dresses and jumpsuits in expressive colors were popular.

A-line dresses with a fitted top and a flared bottom were the most popular. Today, we also love this cut, because it has a positive effect on the figure. Patterned dresses do not go out of fashion. Not only floral motifs are on top, but also geometric or abstract patterns.

Fashion from the times of the People’s Republic of Poland also loved stylish accessories. One of the most popular were velvet scarves that were worn on the head. There is a lot of talk about them this season. We wear colorful scarves not only on the head, but also around the neck or as a hair elastic.
