Rockabilly clothes

Rockabilly clothes

Rockabilly clothes are a timeless part of the fashion industry that incorporate retro looks, music and rock ‘n roll into the style. Originated around the 1950s, rockabilly clothes were worn when rockabilly music was created, a style that combined rock and country. Rockabilly clothes combined the rebellious punk looks worn by men and women who were attending all the latest concerts, including leather jackets, ripped jeans, classic Converse shoes, band t shirts, flowing pencil skirts, penny loafers, and more. Black mixed with bright colors were popular aspects of rockabilly clothes, in correspondence with retro and pin up looks of the same eras.

Rockabilly clothes are not for one specific type of person. Rockabilly embraces individuality, and as long as you have a passion for the music and the culture, you will fit in. Rockabilly isn’t about conformity, either. Rather than turning you into a copy of the person next to you, rockabilly gives you your own look that allows you to express yourself and stand out while still appreciating the culture. Rock on, rockabilly lover!

Rockabella

Rockabella

The look of a sultry rockabella is not for the faint of heart. Rockabella styles typically mix punk, rock ‘n roll, retro, rockabilly, psychobilly and pin up looks, drawing inspiration from rock ‘n roll music, vintage clothing and the pin up styles of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

Rockabella girls aren’t afraid to be bold and stand out from the crowd, often sporting visible tattoos, piercings, and brightly colored hair. Contrasting prints and colors, fitted t shirts with jeans, frilly swing skirts, patent leather shoes and leather jackets are all common components of the rockabella look. Needless to say, they are never afraid to make a surefire statement.

A true rockabella wears clothing that flatters her body and natural assets rather than hiding it in frumpy clothes that don’t show off her figure. Whether a rockabella is a size 4 or a size 24, she is confident with her body and look and knows how to rock it with sass, attitude and incredibly sexy fashion. A rockabella rocks some brick red lipstick, layers on the black cat eye liner, curls and teases her hair, and finishes it all off with a kiss in the mirror and some strappy patent leather stilettos. She never leaves the house without her confidence, curves and attitude.
