Teddy girl + preppy + 1950’s teen style of fashion

Have you ever heard about Teddy girl? preppy look from 1950’s or at least one of them?

If I can describe my own signature style I would say is a mixture between all the above..

teddy style had roots from Edwardian era. (The King Edward VII’s signature cuts, 1901-1910, known as the Edwardian era, dominated men’s fashions). The Teddy Boy fashion of the fifties has its origins in what was an upper class reaction to the austerity imposed by the socialist government in the years following the World War II.

It was was once introduced by tailors to young-active urban workers  as an attempt to initiate a new type of style from its predecessor. Based on the article from edwardianteddyboy.com ” the essential changes from conventional dress were the cut of the jacket and the dandy waistcoat.”-the hair style was pretty much the same tough-

….then girls embraced this kind of style as well. It looked boyish and rock n roll with the leather jackets and the ciggarets, since this  British phenomenon appeared when American Rock’n’Roll music invaded  Britain in late 1955. (edwardianteddyboy.com)

however the other style I inspired to is preppy look more like nerds in 1950’s wearing girls wore man shirt tucked in under the full clocked skirt, and socks beneath the oxford shoes were essential at that time. Mostly the saddle shoes or commonly wear when you play bowling.

I like Oxfords they leathery and edgy, so authentic and Europian… if you wear white or net socks before them and match the look with something feminine like skirts or a man shirt you’ll be like damn awesome!
