Originally intended for dancers to have a dress that moved with their body, the 1940s and 1950s featured a much different swing dress style than what we see today. Pictured below, style icon and actress, Marilyn Monroe wears the timeless swing dress silhouette on her movie, "The Seven Year Itch."

We live in a much different time period now so naturally, out with the old knee length dresses that were fitted at waistline and flared down and in with the new flowy, A-line silhouette dresses with tons of movement potential. Despite how the silhouette has changed, one thing will always remain the same: the classic swing dress will never go out of style.
