Pin Up Outfits

Pin up outfits are for the fearless, retro inspired woman who is not afraid to make a statement. Typically reflecting styles worn in the 1950s and 1960s, pin up outfits are often associated with Bettie Page, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. Modern day divas like Dita Von Teese and Katy Perry have been seen sporting pin up goods, and there is no denying that pin up, retro and rockabilly style has certainly made a comeback in the fashion world.

Pin up outfits often incorporate form-fitting dresses, playsuits, tops and pants, colorful accent pieces and bright contrasts, feminine nylons and shoes, bold accessories, and prints such as leopard print or polka dots. They can also be mixed with modern styles, using a hint of pin up such as a plunging neckline or flared ruffle skirt for the swingy, flirty effect.

Pin Up Outfits

Pin up outfits are all about big hair, red lips, curves, femininity, bold colors, sassy leopard print and polka dots, and most importantly, a fierce attitude. Pencil skirts, sky-high stilettos, bold eyeliner, and flattering corsets all add to the fierceness of a sexy pin up outfit.

One reason pin up outfits, retro themes and rockabilly styles are so popular is because not only are they diverse enough to reflect each woman’s personal style and taste, but they are not designed for one “type” of woman. Whether she’s a size 2 or a size 22, there is something in the cards for each one. Pin up outfits are designed to enhance a woman’s natural features, giving her a sexy, feminine appeal while flattering her gorgeous natural assets. Pin up outfits are not designed to turn a woman into something she’s not. Instead, they are designed to enhance who a woman truly is.

Classic pin up outfits are inspired from the fashion of the 1940’s, 1950’s, and 1960’s. They gained popularity during World War II, a time when women longed to show off their innocence while still displaying their true sex appeal. Pin up outfits can show as much or as little skin as a woman wants, but the original outfits were typically less revealing than what is considered to be an average or revealing outfit today. Pin up swimsuits typically covered the belly button and part of the thighs, while still looking sexy and leaving much to the imagination. Many pin up outfits follow this same rule, leaving more skin covered while flattering the figure with form fitting designs.

If you’re dying to try out a pin up outfit but don’t know where to start, there are a wide variety of pin up boutiques that can help you find exactly what you’d like to dress up with. Start with some flattering undergarments from Purrfect Pineapples or Girdlebound, and find a flattering pin up dress from Moxie Minx or Pinup Couture. Finish off the pin up outfit with sexy heels from Baby Girl Boutique, line your eyes with some cat-like black eyeliner, and tease your hair into the perfectly curled coif. Swipe a streak of bright red lipstick across your lips for the perfect finish to your pin up outfit.

Retro for the whole family, Cats Like Us carries threads not just for swing kings and zombie mommas but also for their little ones. Founders Julie Ann and Andrew’s original concept was to start a true vintage clothing store but soon realized that the difficulty finding and restoring honest-to-goodness vintage apparel combined with the fact that people are far larger than they used to be would mean that their shop would be sparsely populated with prohibitively priced clothing that catered only to the truly tiny members of the retro population.

Undaunted, they took a trip to a Las Vegas vintage-inspired clothing trade show and discovered scads of modern retro-style brands made with contemporary breathable fabrics in sizes up XXL. Inspired, the duo directly went about creating their current shop, and now Cats Like Us has one of the largest inventories of different retro brands around, both indie and well-known.

Cats Like Us currently ships within the United States and Canada as well as Europe, Australia and New Zealand via USPS Priority Mail. They accept returns on selected un-worn, non-sale items with tags intact within 30 days of the original purchase, although they will consider returns after 30 days with a 30% percent restocking fee applied.

In-store pickup is another option for those shopping on their website, and while you are there take the opportunity to browse through their Tonawanda boutique!
