The Liberation of Length
The 1950s were the beginning of a period of liberation when it came to hem lengths for women, offering the freedom to wear skirts above the ankle. With increased mobility on the golf course these skirts were typically coupled with a simple blouse and layered with a cashmere sweater. In warmer weather, sleeveless blouses were acceptable.
The waistline was also a topic of discussion for women on the golf course; while “sack dresses” were viewed as the modest choice, many women opted for dresses with a waistline.
