Greaser – Men can dress up as the ultra cool grease dude. This costume consists of wearing a white t-shirt, slicked back hair, and rolled up tight jeans. Don’t forget the bad boy leather jacket to pull this look off.

Elvis – Elvis is a popular 50’s costume choice. There are a lot of costumes already put together for this famous music icon. If you want to piece the costume together on your own, find a good Elvis wig with side burns and move to finding clothing options that work for the rock-n-roll mega star.

Business Man – You can find a lot of inspiration for this 50’s costume through the movies and TV shows of that age. Men in the fifties often wore flannel suits with fedora hats. When you add the two together with a briefcase you have a great 50’s costume.

Housewife – We can’t forget the famous fifties housewife. A full dress that goes a little below the knees and some classic heels work great for this look. Be sure to wear crinoline underneath the dress to make it work.

Grease Babe – The grease babe is someone who hung out with the grease dudes. Wear a tight blouse with form fitted capris that go to mid-calf. Add a warm up jacket and make sure hair is big and curly.

Sock Hop Girl – Sock hop girls loved to dance. Find a poodle skirt and cardigan, and match it with white tennis shoes. If you want to go with a carhop themed costume you can throw on some roller skates.
