Pinup clothing and fashion represents the styles worn by women in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. While pinup outfits were worn by all sorts of women, it was made popular by icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Bettie Page and Audrey Hepburn.
The outfits range from tight fitted pencil skirts with plunging halters to flowing lace skirts with button down tops, perfect for wearing out on the dance floor. Stiletto shoes and penny loafers turned pinup outfits into work attire or evening wear, suitable for a wide variety of occasions.
Pinup clothing is not designed for one specific size or style of woman.
