Pin Up Dress

Pin Up Dress

A pin up dress can come in a wide variety of styles, but stays faithful to the theme of dresses and outfits worn in the retro eras of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Pin up girls wore dresses quite frequently, channeling their feminine side while still looking sweet, innocent or even slightly fierce.

Pin up dress styles are extremely diverse, ranging from form fitting pencil skirts over a short sleeved button down shirt, to flowing swing skirts worn for dancing or more formal events. Halter tops are a popular top for pin up dresses as they show a bit of skin with their plunging necklines, but offer a feminine and innocent look through prints such as florals, leopard print or simple solid colors.

If you want to find an adorable pin up dress to wear to an event, to work or even just out as your everyday wear, you don’t have to sift through vintage stores or grandma’s closet to find the perfect outfit. Pin up dress styles are classic and timeless, and there are many designers out there who specialize in creating pieces that channel the pin up era. Pin Up Girl Clothing and Babygirlboutique are two of the most popular boutiques that offers pin up looks in a wide variety of styles, while Modcloth is known for their pin up looks with a hint of delicate vintage femininity.
