The 1950s were a time of rock and roll, poodle skirts, and prom dances. Accessorize for your decade party with one of these 50s costume accessories. Movies like Grease and Happy Days are a great place to draw inspiration for a fifties theme. These movies show spunky teens and cool dudes busting loose to rock and roll. 1950s rock stars can use all sorts of fun props to make their performance shine and so can you.
Add accessories like sunglasses, microphones, and guitars for a rock style. For a generic 50s fashion look, add pearl necklaces, Mary Jane shoes, and temporary tattoos to your ensemble. Bowling was a popular pastime during this decade, so a cute bowling shirt and bowling ball handbag can create a theme look that others are not likely to have.
If you are throwing your own fifties decade party, there are a few things you can do to create a fun ambiance. Create bowling lanes with a set of bowling pins and some masking tape. Create a prom theme with streamers, balloons, and DIY banners that say something cute like "Teen Dream Dance" or some other decade appropriate saying.
