1950s Costumes for Girls

Actors in the movie Grease wore some groovy-looking outfits representative of the 1950s. Billowy skirts emphasising slim waistlines, Peter Pan collars and motorcycle jackets were the norm for girls and women. Whether theres an upcoming fancy dress or costume party where only hip attire is acceptable, youll find girls costumes that define what the 50s style was all about—a style still popular decades later.

Complete Outfits

Shell be on cloud 9 wearing a 1950s complete outfit to include a pink poodle skirt, pettiskirt, straight-bodice top with short sleeves and a cinched belt. Add a pair of black-rimmed peepers and a necktie, and shell have the nicest threads of anyone around. A rocker-styled party outfit means showing up wearing a polka-dot skirt and white blouse, red jumper and a sequin belt. Add black and white saddle Oxford shoes, and based on 50s slang, shes considered hep or with it by her coolest friends.


Typical 50s fashion included dresses with full skirts that evolved into long, narrow skirts by the late 1950s. When shopping for girls 1950s dresses, a car hop costume represents the era when young ladies wore short dresses with aprons and a matching hat or oversized bow clipped to their hair. This was common attire to serve buying customers at drive-throughs. Additionally, girls can have a blast wearing a swing rock n roll style dress. These costume reproductions look like the real thing with short sleeves and two-toned dress and bodice combinations, such as black and hot pink, turquoise and black, or bright yellow and white.


Fashion designers of the 50s created swing skirts that gathered at the waistline to draw attention to tiny waists. Girls can practice twirling when wearing one or dance to jazz music or another favourite genre. To make the skirt seem wider, some skirts include a built-in crinoline to make the skirt puff out.

Coats and Jackets

Girls usually love the colour pink and will jump at the chance to wear a pink bomber jacket made from silky fabric. Pair the jacket with a pair of black shiny trousers and flats, and theres no way anyone can call her a party pooper.
