Reel Librarian Style: The ladies of Desk Set

Continuing from my previous post, here are some inspiration boards celebrating the style of the Desk Set ladies

Peg (Joan Blondell), Ruthie (Sue Randall), and Sylvia (Dina Merrill), seen below, are assistant librarians in a TV network’s research library. They are smart, sassy, and feminine, which their wardrobes reflect. Favoring timeless ’50s silhouettes of full skirts and cinched waistlines, they wear dresses as well as separates (cardigans, twinsets, sweaters). Although their clothing is quite simplistic in shape, the color choices are quite bold and striking.

Bottom line, their collective style is both classic and comfortable. Perfect for the modern librarian!
