This style appeared in the 50s of the last century in the Soviet Union during the difficult post-war years for the state, when the population had to work tirelessly to restore the country, to heal the wounds inflicted by the war. The policy of the state, moreover, at that time was aimed at equalizing all citizens. To look like everyone else, not to stand out, to be modest - these are the main theses of this policy, which were almost unanimously approved by the population, who experienced a terrible tragedy in their history. Therefore, everything was gray then - people's clothes and their interior.
Fashion as a youth protest
Boys and girls wanted colors and something new. As a reflection of their desire for brightness and a protest against the accepted stereotypes of behavior, a youth subculture of dudes appeared. The word "dandy" in the Soviet media was used with a touch of condemnation. People who supported this new fashion were criticized, and their behavior was discussed at Komsomol meetings. But the term for the representatives of this movementI liked it because it comes from the word "stylish", which means "fashionable".
Signs of style
The representatives of the so-called "golden youth", who had information about foreign fashion and music, were the first to join this subculture. Boys and girls, eagerly absorbing everything new, tried on the style of dudes. The guys wore tight trousers and broad-shouldered jackets, and a herring tie was an obligatory attribute of the outfit. Girls, on the other hand, dressed in wide skirts with petticoats, trouser suits, tight-fitting blouses and girded the waist with a bow belt. A fashionable hairstyle for guys was considered a cook, Elvis Presley's hairstyle, and for girls - high hairstyles babette and shell.
Men's shoes were made with thick white soles, and in the summer heat, style followers wore colorful Hawaiian shirts. The girls wore tight heeled pumps and bright makeup.
By modern standards, there was nothing defiant in this image. But at that time, such an outfit was perceived as a rebellion. In addition, the style of dudes included a passion for jazz. Young people liked the music of Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry. Many dudes played musical instruments themselves, and some of them later became famous musicians.
Modern fashion style
As a successor to the fashion of the 50s, this trend returned at the beginning of the 21st century, focusing on some elements. For example, it is difficult to imagine clothes of this style for everyday wear by adults in our time because of their elegance. But in a festive way it can be successfully applied as a wholestyle, as well as its individual parts. And women's hairstyles, based on dandy-style hairstyles and modified in accordance with the spirit of the times, can brighten up any celebration.
Bright and solemn, elegant and mischievous, these clothes are perfect for our children. It is now the most fashionable style in children's clothing. Even a lot of clothing stores for children with the name "Stilyaga" appeared.
Style girls style
In children's stores a large selection of outfits in this direction. Admittedly, the Malvina and Princess party dresses for girls no longer look as modern as the dandy-style dress in the photo below.
Here there is both chic, and coquetry, and taste, and what girls like so much - brightness. For such a dress, a petticoat is provided, the color of which differs from the color of the dress, and white socks are worn under the shoes, which is fully consistent with the style of dudes for girls. The waist is marked with a belt. A well-styled hairstyle emphasizes the dudes subculture, and a bright headband and neckerchief are important additions.
Trendy-style clothes suit little tomboys more than anyone else. They feel comfortable and organic in it, it seems that this style was created especially for them. It is in such clothes that you can be mischievous and look businesslike, be fashionable, bright and unusual.

Men also like to play pranks. After a week of work, when you need to dress in a business style, they can afford to be a dude at some party. In this case, their appearance is similar to the image of a playful boy in bright trousers and an oversized jacket, in boots with white rubber soles, the so-called "semolina", and of course with a colorful tie.
Let's consider a modern set of men's clothing, made in moderate colors, but with all the hallmarks of a fashion style, as in the photo.
Bright and cropped trousers are a typical representative of the dude subculture, which can be said about the plaid jacket. But the colors of the shirt, socks and tie are calmer. With these small changes, this set can be used as a casual set.

This style can be fully used only at events dedicated to the relevant topic. In kindergartens, during matinees, the style of dudes is often assigned as a dress code. Dressing their babies in accordance with the requirements of style, moms and dads also dress in a similar way, and there is complete harmony between all participants in the holiday. Consider the style of the dudes in the photo.

The skirt has a petticoat, and the whole set is complemented by gloves, a belt and white pumps. The presence of a bow is fully consistent with the subculture of dudes, but there are also differences from the fashion of the 50s. The fashion of the 20th century was characterized by a deliberate incomparability of shades, and the colors of the set in the photo blend harmoniously together. It can be said that today's mod-style sets look more elegant than their predecessors.
Stylish subculture in women's clothing prefers dresses, but does not completely refuse trousers. Usually they have a shortened look, exposing the ankles, and a high waist. Girls wear them with fitted blouses and pumps, but the accessories remain the same.
Accessories and makeup
