IIIn the 50's there were two distinct looks. One being Preppie and the other Greaser. The Preppie boys clothing mainly consisted of baggy pants, V-neck sweaters, loafers, or white bucks. The girls wore poodle skirts (full length skirts with small animal prints sewn on the skirt), circle skirts (a full skirt that stuck out with a stiff, puffy crinoline underneath) sweater sets, bobby sox, and saddle shoes.
The Greaser image was introduced in the movies. The boys wore tight black jeans, white T-shirts, black boots, and black leather jackets. They would grease back their hair with oil, and combed it into a duck tail in the back. The Greaser girls wore tight sweaters, short skirts, and heavy make up.
