Rydell HS Cheerleader Costume

If you are looking for a flirty 50’s look for a Grease production, start with a poodle skirt paired with a peter pan blouse or a simple button down shirt. Larger casts may prefer circle skirts for their chorus. Add a crinoline with the skirt for extra flow and volume. Cardigans with a poodle applique, pin, or sweater guards add an authentic touch. Cat eye glasses, poodle bobby socks, and scarves in a high ponytail are perfect accessories to polish off this look.

Edgy Pink Ladies Outfit

For a greaser look, dress up in a sexy pencil skirt with a halter top. A rockabilly polka dot dress or a little black dress create an edgy “rebel without a cause” 50’s feel. Don’t forget a cinch belt is an essential part of your 50’s costume. It will define the waist to create the famous 50’s bell shape.Wear simple cardigan over the halter and use a sweater guard achieve a retro style.  Also, add a cherry head scarf for some 50’s sass.
