From the 24 November, 1958 Life Magazine- White for Night.

'A satin evening coat accented with jet buttons worn with a matching satin turban and black velvet dress, $400.'

Ben Zuckerman's collection for 1958 featured an array of brillian colours. Deep sky blue, coral and hibisucs pinks, lilac and golden beige were some of the many shades seen. 

Coats were seen in shocking pink, tangerine, marigold yellow and bright red. Coats generally had a flared shape, and often featured belts or huge pockets. Bows appeared on silk coats, 

Suits this year included the Norfolk silhouette, which is a loose, belted, single-breasted jacket with box pleats on the back (and sometimes front), with a belt or half-belt.
