Rumble 59 – Rockabilly Store

Rumble 59 Rockabilly Store

Today’s fast paced and technology driven world makes many wish for the times of face to face contact instead of Facebook and sending letters instead of Email. This nostalgia springs from the belief that the past was a simpler time when men were suave and charming and women were innocent and well-behaved.

Rumble59_logo

However, there is no need to idolize the past when one can embrace the true spirit of days gone by with Rumble 59. This German retailer shows the past as the rebellious and edgy climate it really was, and all designs embody the rockabilly lifestyle.

Women do not have to wait for a jock to give them a letterman jacket anymore when they can purchase their own. Ladies who want a casual and vintage outfit for the daytime can pair the jacket with a high quality printed shirt from the Rockabilly Rebel line and be ready for lounging at the diner with milkshakes or taking a ride on a motorcycle.

Rumble 59 also has looks for those who love pin-up and rockabilly styles. Women can be beautiful and feminine while still able to rock with everything from denim pencil skirts with clean lines and a snug fit to tight striped shirts that show off a woman’s assets.

Both men and women can enjoy the line of denim Rumble 59 produces because it is not artfully distressed, torn, ripped or otherwise modified in the name of fashion. Store bought imperfections are fake, but this denim is genuine. Wearers will have to earn faded denim and flaws in the material by getting dirty, partying and living fearlessly.

rockabilly jeans

Greasers, ruffians and moonshiners can enhance their outfits with accessories like flasks, switch blade inspired combs, bold belt buckles and more. Whether drag racing with a bandana or finishing a perfectly styled hairdo with a checkered headband, Rumble 59 ensures you look rockabilly chic from head to toe.

rockabilly accesoires

There is no need to idolize the past when it is possible to find beauty in classic rock idols, old school street gangs and smoky lit bars. Rumble 59 brings the past back with these glamor meets grunge outfits that should never go out of style.

Esther Williams Swimwear

Esther Williams Swimwear

Esther Williams Swimwear is a retro and pin up swimsuit collection designed by the competitive swimmer Esther Williams. Her years spent in the pool, lake or ocean while warming up with laps and competing against other women created a passion for looking stylish while on the beach and in the pool.

The designs are inspired by retro looks of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, which all manage to look fun and sexy without being revealing. Women of all ages, shapes and sizes look beautiful in the flattering cuts of Esther Williams Swimwear, without feeling self conscious or as if too much skin is showing.

The Classic Sheath swimsuit style is a form fitting one piece, with a padded bra area and halter top to keep it secure. The bunched fabric that goes over the torso goes slightly below the hips, creating the look of a short skirt over the bathing suit bottoms. These sheath styles are available in standard and plus sizes, so petite and curvy women alike can all find a size that is perfect for their body and assets.

Classic Tank suits are also available for those who prefer the classic cut bottoms and straps that go over the shoulder. Solid colors and prints are all available so you can find a style perfect for you. For a slightly more revealing one piece, the Classic Bandeau is the same style as the Classic Tank with a sleeveless upper half.

For the ladies who love to show a little midriff, the 2 Piece Classic Sheath is a bikini with a supportive halter top and high cut bottoms that cover the bum and rise just above the belly button.

There is a wide variety of prints and fabrics available to choose from when ordering a suit. Most items are made to order, so once you choose your fabric and size, the suit will be shipped to you once it is made. If you’re not completely satisfied with your suit, don’t worry! There is a 30 day return policy so if it doesn’t fit just right, you can return it and order another size or style. Take a look through the classic suit options and find just the right retro swimwear for your body!
