Greaser – Greaser girls wore fitted clothing. This meant mid-calf pants and button down shirts that were tight to the body. Silky warm-up styled jackets and large bouffant styled hair were good options with this style.

Greaser guys wore clothing similar to jocks, except their jeans were not as loose. A leather jacket was the popular jacket choice. Wear your hair slicked back with plenty of styling gel.
