The look of a sultry rockabella is not for the faint of heart. Rockabella styles typically mix punk, rock ‘n roll, retro, rockabilly, psychobilly and pin up looks, drawing inspiration from rock ‘n roll music, vintage clothing and the pin up styles of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.
Rockabella girls aren’t afraid to be bold and stand out from the crowd, often sporting visible tattoos, piercings, and brightly colored hair. Contrasting prints and colors, fitted t shirts with jeans, frilly swing skirts, patent leather shoes and leather jackets are all common components of the rockabella look. Needless to say, they are never afraid to make a surefire statement.
While sifting through your parents’s closets may be the easiest way to find some true vintage rockabella styles, you don’t have to spend hours going through old clothes to find what you want. There are all sorts of online stores that sell endless varieties of rockabilly, psychobilly, retro and pin up duds at affordble prices, so while the pieces may not have been made in 1953, they still have the look with a sexy, feminine and modern touch. Babygirlboutique, Poison Candy Fashion and Lolita Girl Clothing are three popular boutiques that both sell rockabilly, psychobilly and all around retro styles. For something a little more intense, check out Tokyo Motor Grrrl for their racer girl gear, plaid styles, pin stripes and checkered duds. To add in a bit of greaser girl inspiration, check out Grease, Gas and Glory, a store that mixes greaser girl styles with racer girl styles, all with a rockabella touch added in for femininity.

A true rockabella wears clothing that flatters her body and natural assets rather than hiding it in frumpy clothes that don’t show off her figure. Whether a rockabella is a size 4 or a size 24, she is confident with her body and look and knows how to rock it with sass, attitude and incredibly sexy fashion. A rockabella rocks some brick red lipstick, layers on the black cat eye liner, curls and teases her hair, and finishes it all off with a kiss in the mirror and some strappy patent leather stilettos. She never leaves the house without her confidence, curves and attitude.
