Teddy Girls were the girlfriends and female counterparts of the Teddy boy movement. They often adopted the same look as their boyfriends adding cameos to their cravat and sometimes but rarely wearing a skirt. Here’s the look in a nutshell. Velvet collared blazer, jeans (rolled up) or slacks, Loafers or flat shoes, white shirt with a black tie or ribbon, cameo broach and a walking stick umbrella. Last detail, big hair!
