Rockabilly dresses were popularly worn in the 1950s through the 1970s by women who were passionate about the tunes of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and other artists who mixed rock and a little bit of country.
Rockabilly fashion typically incorporates retro and pin up styles with a little extra punk rock flair, so women who loved to maintain the feminine look of a flirty dress but wanted to express their love for the rock style often wore rockabilly dresses.
Rockabilly dresses come in a wide range of styles, often with fun, flirt and flowing skirts that were easy to dance and “rock out” in. Swing skirts are still incorporated into more modern rockabilly styles, while short leather outfits, skirts and dresses may even be worn by the bold, fierce women who want to add a seductive touch to their fearless rocker look. Some dresses are even worn with vintage band t shirts for an individual mixed up look.
