In 1950s postwar Britain a new wave of rebellion took hold in the working class teenage scene: fashion. The Boys, self named Teds, began wearing Edwardian dress bought up at second hand stores after upperclass men were done wearing them. However, the best kept gem of the time were the hidden Teddy Girls who, with espadrilles and straw hats, put there own feminine spin on the trend. Although these kids were dubbed rebels by the media, most were just out loitering so they didn’t have to go home in time for tea… and in creepers and spats, they made avoiding a sip of earl gray look so so good!
