An ode to 1950s slang!

Mid-fifties. James Dean. Rebel without a cause. A few ingredients that inspired a whole new generation of teens to “rebel” back in the 1950s. It was also the start of some new trends in fashion style. Short jackets and jeans with rolled cuffs for men. Figurehugging tops and tight (highwaisted) pants and skirts for women. Let’s not forget the famous pompadour hairstyles! James Dean was an important cult icon of  the new rockabilly (sub) culture. Greasers (indeed, like John Travolta in Grease) and Dolls with that o so typical rockabilly style.
