The Girls of the Class of ’58

A friend who graduated six years ahead of “Danny” and “Sandy” corrected me on my blog about the way girls dressed c. 1958.  He says that there were girls who dressed like Olivia Newton-John at the end of “Grease.”  They would often go out to nightclubs and dance contests dressed that way, but obviously they didn’t go to school in that kind of get-up.  It depended on the part of the country you were in, but particularly in a place like L.A., you would see them in that kind of outfit, and particulary if the girl was a “hot-looking chick.”

But, he notes, that didn’t mean they were ladies.
