Polls right, lots of petticoats under either skirts or dresses and I remember teenagers wearing their cardigans the wrong way round, buttons to the back and beads with huge earrings and red lipstick. From what I remember there were only two colours, red or orange in the make up range. Same with nailvarnish.
You could also wear socks, white ones with patent shoes, or stockings with suspenders and seams up the back.
There were so many fashiions however I do remember hair backcombed and lots of hair tied up, either ponytail or large bobs.
I was small at the beginning of the 50’s like Poll, but I used to admire my neighbours daughter going out, she looked a million dollars and I wanted to aspire to her looks when I grew up. It was a time of experimentation with what we had.
Have a great time.
