50's Costumes

"Ayyy!" If you want to look your coolest this Halloween, take a tip from the king of cool, Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli and wear a leather jacket. That's what the coolest cats from the 50's wore, especially if they were part of a club like The T-Birds from Grease. Leather jackets and blue jeans made you part of the Greasers, which is the most popular style of men's 50s Halloween costumes, but there are several other styles you should know about so let's take a trip down memory lane.

One of the favorite pastimes in the decade was bowling. The bowling shirts are colorful and authentic. When paired with a wig and black pants, the look really brings you back. With men in their bowling shirts and women in their poodle skirts, they would bowl the night away before heading to Inspiration Point for a bit of necking under the stars.
