Pin-Up Fashion

Pin-Up Fashion

Pin-up fashion takes a bold, confident woman to be properly pulled off. Pin-up fashion typically represents and reflects the styles worn on women in the 1920s all the way through the 1950s and 1960s.

Unlike today, much of pin-up fashion is designed to accentuate a woman’s natural features, enhancing her curves and hips, plunging the neckline to enhance cleavage, and hugging the legs to create a curvy, elongated silhouette. The fact that pin-up fashion accentuates and praises women of all ages, shapes and sizes is one of many reasons why it remains an iconic symbol of fashion many years later.

Pin-up fashion often includes plunging halter tops, dresses and playsuits, frilled skirts, fitted pencil skirts, nylons, seamed pantyhose, corset tops, and sky-high stilettos. Patent leather accessories, bright colors and contrasts and bright red lips are also popular accents. Pin-up fashion embraces individuality and allows women to mix and match colors and styles to create fierce, original outfits that suit them and their personal style perfectly.
