Fashions, fads and slang. What we wear, what we say, and what makes us a little crazy tells a lot about a culture. The Fifties was fundamentally a time of conformity. You won’t find anything wild or risqué on these pages. Think of it as good, clean, wholesome stuff. Instead of lingerie think night shirts, instead of mini skirts, think at the knee length skirts and you’ll get the idea.
Sorry, kids, but Grease was a movie. Most kids didn’t look quite that cool. We dressed very conservatively. What is shown on these pages is an accurate representation of Fifties clothing.
