The popularity of retro clothing has brought blurred or stretched definitions to retro-inspired fashion, but Doll Deluxe is the real deal. If you are drawn to garments associated with the 40s, 50s and 60s, you will love these well-made and beautiful articles of clothing offered by this small label.

The wiggle dress is the star of the Doll Deluxe collection. Each wiggle dress features the classic cut with a narrower width at the hem rather than the hips, allowing you to sexily “wiggle” when you walk. The label also has a selection of swing dresses, and they are just as impressive. In combination with flattering necklines, such as a halter or sweetheart shape, Doll Deluxe ensures your curves are hugged in only the most favorable way.

Doll Deluxe also offers a sweet collection of separates. From pencil skirts, sailor pants and swing skirts to peasant blouses, basic boatneck tops and pussy bow blouses, the possibilities to mix and match are endless. Whether you just started a pinup-inspired wardrobe or you are on the constant prowl for new retro-style additions, the clothing under this brand is versatile and easy to pair for both casual or dressier situations.

The color palette and retro-inspired prints of Doll Deluxe clothing are simple and are easily associated with vintage fashion. Gingham, polka dots and sailor stripes make a frequent appearance, but you will also find flirty designs, like cherry and hula prints.

The placement of detailing, like embroidered tattoo-style swallows, corset-like piping and peekaboo tulle, is deliberate and quite successful. These details not only enhance the garment but complement a woman’s body and personality, too.

Doll Deluxe is a great example of simple yet glamorous pinup-style clothing. Every rockabella, fiery vixen and burlesque girl should give the label a look, because most of the brand’s pieces translate well from day to night. If you live in Australia, the brand gives you the option to put items on lay by, but the website also has some great sales offered to their worldwide consumers.
