Young teen boys of the 1950’s wore white T-shirts. Made popular by the late (and very very hot) James dean. He wore the ripped jeans with the white t-shirts and leather jackets in his movie rebel without a cause. So naturally many of the younger boys copied him. Girls were wearing long faired skirts that were so stiff from the starch that was used on them they would probably stand up on their own.
