The beautiful stoic poise of these girls belies a wisdom and elegance far beyond their years. The photo doesn't show what bottoms they are wearing, but I like to imagine them all wearing a pegged plaid, wide-cuffed skinny trouser with a pair of Nike Blazers.

Photo taken by Nina Leen for LIFE Magazine, circa 1956.
