During the 50′s, Rock and Roll idols such as Elvis Presley and film stars such as James Dean set the new fashions. The two main looks were greasers, who wore black leather, and preppies, who were all about neatness, tidiness and grooming.
Teen girls wore full circular skirts or neat pleated skirts, made from a brand new fabric called polyester, which helped maintain the razor sharp pleating.
