The average teenage girl in the '50s embraced the trend of pastel-colored fabrics and wore a great deal of yellow, white and pink. To achieve the everyday outfit of the younger generation, you would pair a mid-calf full-circle skirt, lifted up by a crinoline petticoat, with a sweater or button-up blouse. You completed the look with the very popular cardigan sweater, possibly embroidered or beaded for extra flair, and flats or saddle shoes. Scarves were also often used to add a little flair to the common ponytail that teenage girls wore during this period.


The thrift store/goodwill are awesome for this. Or make a skirt from felt.
