Grease Pink Lady Costumes

by Tara_W

Fans of the movie Grease will want to bring back the 1950s and 60s with a Pink Lady Costume. Build your own costume including the trademark pink satin jacket.

The year is 1959 and you are going back to school at Rydell High. Of course you want to be one of the Pink Ladies, the bad girls who rule the school. When you're a Pink Lady, every girl wants to be you and every guy wants to date you. But you only have eyes for the T-Birds.

If you're a fan of the 1978 classic film Grease then a Pink Lady costume is a great idea for Halloween or a costume party. On this page you'll find several costume options including the iconic pink satin jacket. Pair it with 1950's style accessories and you'll be transported back in time to the era of greasers, tail fin cars and milkshakes at the diner.

The Pink Ladies Jacket

The satin pink ladies jacket is iconic and an absolute must-have for any Pink Lady. Start with the jacket and build your costume from there.

This pink lady costume jacket looks just like the one seen in the movie. It has a zippered front with cuffs and collar that you can wear flat or upturned. There is a large black Pink Ladies insignia across the back and a smaller one on the front left side. The only difference is in the movie the individual name was embroidered on the front instead of a second Pink Lady insignia. 

Available from extra-small to extra-large. Based on customer reviews, the jacket does run a little small so order the next size up.

What to Wear with your Pink Lady Jacket?

To make your Pink Lady costume authentic you'll want to pair your jacket with clothing from the late 50's or perhaps very early 60's (Grease 2 was set in 1961). 

A pair of black cigarette pants is a great bad girl option. You'll remember a transformed Sandy wearing something similar during her final scenes. Cigarette pants, also called 'pencil pants', became popular during the 1950's and were worn by celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe. 

If you'd rather wear a skirt then consider pairing your jacket with a poodle skirt, a classic symbol of the 1950's. The poodle skirt was often made at home and consisted of a knee- or calf-length swing skirt with a French poodle applique.

Pink Lady 'Frenchy' Wig

Beauty school dropout...

Everybody remembers Frenchy's beauty disaster in tinting class when she accidentally turned her hair pink. If you'd like to dress up as Frenchy then this wig is the perfect accessory. It's humorous and no one will mistake you for one of the other Pink Ladies.

This curly pink wig comes in the 'one size fits all' category. Based on customer reviews it may be a bit darker than the picture but is good value for money.

 

Dress Up as Pink Lady Leader Betty Rizzo

Tough and sarcastic

Usually referred to by her last name, Rizzo is a tough, self-assured woman who doesn't give a damn what others think of her. She has a reputation as the classic 'bad girl' smoking, drinking and making flippant remarks. 

The first outfit we see her in is a black pencil skirt, short-sleeved black blouse and black waist cinch belt. She often carries her Pink Ladies jacket or slings it over her shoulders. Her short dark brown hair is styled with brushed out pincurls.

The official 'Rizzo' costume includes a one-piece dress that beautifully mimics her outfit in the movie and includes the black waist cinch belt.
