The 50s are a great decade for dressing up in costumes for Halloween, a party, performance or just for fun! 50s girl costumes usually include a nifty poodle skirt. These circle skirts were popular with young girls during the 1950s although they feature more than just poodles- any animal, insect or funny saying was sewn onto felt skirts. The other popular 50s girls costume is the diner waitress or roller skating car hop. Her uniform was plaid with a white collar and half apron. Both costumes pair well with black and white saddle shoes, bobby socks, cat-eye glasses, a neck or hair scarf, and white peter pan collar blouse. Pink and black were popular colors in the 50s but so were red and blue polka dots!
Other 50s girl costumes include a housewife. Lucile Ball in I Love Lucy also makes a great housewife costume. All the characters from Grease such as The Pink Ladies, especially Sandy are also popular. For less trendy, more authentic costumes, consider a 50s girl’s dress for a Rockabilly or Pin up inspired look. Sizes are for babies, toddler, little girls and big girls / tweens.
