Teddy Girl

One look that I’ve always admired, but never dived into is the Teddy Girl look of 1950s England. These bad girls combined looks from the time with that of the Edwardian period resulting in something nothing short of fantastic.  Then one day while staring into my closet, I realized I had all the makings of the perfect Teddy Girl inspired outfit just laying about!

The fabulous blog Messy Nessy Chic did a great post on Teddy Girls, check it out!

  1. Love it! The plaid pants are fabulous. I actually have a very similar pair in blue and also a red patent purse. Great inspiration.

  2. You make a perfect Teddy Girl. Very interesting history and I really enjoyed looking back at the photographs. It would be so interesting to know what happened to some of these young girls.

  3. As I was scrolling through the photos I was NOT expecting how awesome that cameo was! I actually had to scroll back up and think “wait, was that what I think it was?” Great outfit! I’ve always appreciated Teddy styles. You nailed it!

    When people say I was born in the wrong era (which I disagree with wholeheartedly!) I always wonder if I had lived in the 50’s if I would dress in clothes from the Victorian era – this was before I discovered Teddy Boys and Girls. When I came across images of them I knew this would have been my style had I lived then!
