Nicole Katherine’s original dresses and separates all embody her stylistic evolution toward more classic vintage silhouettes yet each piece retains her distinct and sassy mark, from the stunning and sophisticated gray suit dress ‘Elizabeth’ and the retro flamenco-style, circle-skirted ‘Bella Muerta’ dress with matching bolero, to the nautical ‘Armada Belle’ blouse with matching side-button pants, the ‘Lauren’ pencil skirt in gray (with or without contrast pocket flaps) and the classic 1940’s ‘Lindy Blouse’ (available in fabrics from solid rust to plaid).

Fashion-conscious from a young age, while growing up in Montana Nicole was appalled by the apparel available in stores. Dismayed that the rockabilly and punk styles she loved were nowhere to be found, she enlisted her grandmother to teach her to sew and by age 13 was regularly adapting dress patterns and tweaking thrift store finds to fabricate her own custom wardrobe.

A former psychology writer, Nicole Katherine became truly enthusiastic about original clothes design after creating her costumes for Irish Dance competitions.

Rockabilly Clothing

Rockabilly Clothing

Rockabilly clothing is not for the faint hearted woman. Mixing fashion and rock music is a fierce collaboration that creates intense, eye-catching retro styles. The statements made with rockabilly clothing typically reflect the classic rock era of the 1950s and 1960s, mixing leather, lace, vintage t shirts, stiletto boots, greaser hair and fun, flowing skirts. The clothing options are diverse and designed to reflect the personal style and tastes of virtually any man or woman.

Vintage, pin up, gothic and punk styles are also common trends that are incorporated into the rockabilly scene. Leather jackets, newsboy hats, bright red lipstick and skin tight clothing, including t shirts, are all part of the rockabilly clothing look. It started off by mixing the components and styles of country and rock music, eventually merging into more of a rocker edge. New age music that is considered to represent the rockabilly scene includes the Brian Setzer Orchestra and Green Day, with modern icons like Dita Von Teese, a popular burlesque dancer, incorporating rockabilly duds into her costumes and looks.

To incorporate a bit of the rockabilly edge into your personal style, there are plenty of online boutiques that offer excellent rockabilly clothing. Miss Hussy Clothing is a favorite of many rockabilly aficionados, along with Whirling Turban and Stop Staring Clothing. Rockabilly Rules, Rockabilly-Fashion.de, Tokyo Motor Grrrl, and FiveTone.com all include rockabilly, pin up and vintage styles at a variety of sizes, styles and price ranges. Lady K Loves has a large selection of dresses that can be worn with a rockabilly leather jacket, lace-up boots and seamed pantyhose. With the massive variety of boutiques specializing in rockabilly, pin up and retro clothes, it is a breeze to find something that suits you perfectly.

Completing your rockabilly clothing look with the right hair style and make up is integral to true rockabilly form. Bright red lips, black cat-eye liner, voluptuous curls for the girls and greased back hair for the guys are all important when going for a true rockabilly look. Lastly, a confident and fierce attitude is a must. Wear it with confidence and a smile and you’ll have all the onlookers stopped dead in their tracks.
