I’m a sucker for a good musical, and “Grease” is one of my favorites. It’s a little bit silly, a little bit campy, but the music and dancing are amazing. And the clothes! Who can forget Sandra Dee’s transformation from innocent girl-next-door to vampy vixen in leather? Okay, so the concept of changing yourself to impress a man is pretty archaic, but the modern woman has the freedom to dress like whatever version of Sandra Dee she wants.
Then there are the Pink Ladies, forever the coolest clique in school. Their iconic pink jackets sent a message of elitism and exclusivity; they were the original bad girls club. And there was Frenchie, the pinkest of the pink ladies, whose hair was always in flux and so fabulous that it must have made Lady Gaga weep.
I’ve found some items that work with the Grease them without being too Halloweeny or anachronistic. Then again, this is a movie from the late 70’s, set in the 50’s, and is as cheesy as you’re gonna get. So cheese it up and have a little fun.
