The Pink Ladies from Grease

If you haven’t seen Grease by now, you’re missing out. Not only are the songs catchy and the lines almost infinitely quotable but the costumes are iconic. And perhaps none are more so than those of the Pink Ladies. Rizzo, Frenchie, Jan, and and Marty are sort of the girl gang of Rydell High. They more or less pair up with the T-Birds, the school’s unofficial greaser representatives. Of course there’s Sandy Olson too, though she doesn’t join until much later. And, alas, she never gets that iconic Pink Ladies jacket.

You can get one, though! In fact a Pink Ladies Jacket is more or less the one piece you absolutely need in order to pull of this costume. All of the girls change their clothes throughout the movie but that is one thing they are almost never seen without.

To finish off the look you could choose a classic ’50s A-Line dress, pearls, heels, and hair bows like Frenchie wears. Just make sure you get one of these ’50s hairstyles going too.

Or you might prefer the more daring look of capris, flats, and a button down like Rizzo wears.

No matter how you style it, as long as you’ve got the jacket and the attitude, you’re a Pink Lady through and through!

Ponyboy Curtis from The Outsiders

Ponyboy Curtis (C. Thomas Howell) is the protagonist and narrator of The Outsiders written by S.E. Hinton. He is the youngest in the Curtis family with Soda-Pop and Darry as his older brothers. Despite being fourteen years old, he sees how the members of the Greasers function. He also learns that their rival gang, the Socs, have problems just like they do. Ponyboy is the closest to Johnny Cade in age and in mentality, as they both are more compassionate and willing to help others. The two run away together, and Ponyboy bleaches his hair so no one recognizes him. Together they save children from a burning church, which resulted in Johnny’s death. As he died, he told Ponyboy to “stay gold.” Here are three looks from the movie adaptation, where Tom Howell portrays this character. From the lines near his shoulders, it looks like he cut the sleeves off a navy blue sweater. You can also use the scissors to rip up the jeans a bit. The other two outfits are more simple, consisting of different plaid shirts. Although for his end-credits look, you will need blonde hair.

Danny Zuko

In Grease, Danny Zuko (John Travolta) is the leader of the Rydell High greaser gang known as the T-Birds. Confident and often arrogant, Zuko discovers that his summer fling may not be just a fling when it turns out his love interest, Sandy Olsson, transfers to his high school.

The Fonz

Aaaaeeeeyyyy! It’s The Fonz! Arthur Fonzarelli (Henry Winkler) was the ultimate cool guy on Happy Days. He could fix any electrical device with a pound of his fist and make any girl swoon with the snap of his fingers. To complete the look, find yourself a jukebox to stand next to and jump start it with your fist.

Mutt Williams

In Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Henry “Mutt Williams” Jones III (Shia LaBeouf) is the son of Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood. As Indy’s new sidekick, he has big shoes to fill.
