Two young men dressed in the 'Teddy boy' style, British, 1953. Photo by Henry Grant. 'Teddy boy' style blended Edwardian and American fashions. Through slicked quiffed hair, draped jackets with velvet collars, narrow ties and peg trousers, the 'Teds' expressed their rebelliousness. By the mid-1950s Teds had attracted a reputation, especially among the media, for violent and criminal behaviour.

Petticoats in rainbow colors...
Montgomery Ward, Carol Brent ad. To achieve that 1950's "poodle skirt" silhouette, tulle crinolines like these were employed. As many as four or five could be worn, though one would provide a suitable improvement for "everyday" casual. I LOVED CRINOLINE SLIPS!!! I would dance around the house with one around my neck and one pinned around my waist! I danced to Lawrence Welk...my mom was a saint!!
Montgomery Ward, Carol Brent ad Love to see vintage ads!
