Throughout the past decade, pin-up clothing has made a serious comeback in terms of popularity. Designed to channel the sexy styles of pin up girls of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, pin-up clothing incorporates feminine playsuits, high-cut shorts, low-cut halter tops, fitted corsets, sexy pencil skirts and ruffled, lacy flowing skirts into many looks.
Curvy hips, plunging cleavage and bold confidence are all important parts of pin-up clothing as well. One reason these styles are so popular is because women of all ages, shapes and sizes can pull the styles off. Whether you’re an XXS or an XXL, pin-up clothing will enhance your natural assets and embrace your femininity rather than trying to hide flaws and turn you into a carbon copy of the woman next to you. No two pin up icons look alike, so if you’re going for the pin-up clothing look you’ll want to maintain your individuality as well. Bettie Page, Bernie Dexter and Marilyn Monroe were all known for being fierce, confident, feminine and unique, and so should you.
