If you are looking for something snazzy to wear to your sock hop or Halloween party, check out our 1950s Halloween accessories . The 1950s was an era of prosperity in the U.S. as the economy boomed after World War II ended. It was also an era of tension and fear. The Cold War had begun and the Soviet Union had nuclear weapons. But most teens didn't think about these things and instead spent time listening to rock and roll and dancing at the hop.
With the end of the war and rationing, girls welcomed the poodle skirt, which was made with an excess of fabric that could not be had just a few years before. They were often worn with a cinch belt, scarf, socks and saddle shoes, all available right here in our accessories section. Additional selections include 50s-style cat eye eyeglasses, jewelry and bouffant wigs. Necking in the back seat of a car was popular, so we carry faux hickeys. If you are a Marilyn Monroe fan, purchase our Marilyn inspired jewelry set.
For men, leather jackets were in vogue and we offer several faux leather styles in our costume section that can be accessorized with our 50's tattoos. Bowling was a popular pastime and we have several bowling a bowling bag accent for your costume. Elvis Presley was the king, so we carry Elvis glasses, scarves and sideburns.
