Unlike today, much of pin-up fashion is designed to accentuate a woman’s natural features, enhancing her curves and hips, plunging the neckline to enhance cleavage, and hugging the legs to create a curvy, elongated silhouette. The fact that pin-up fashion accentuates and praises women of all ages, shapes and sizes is one of many reasons why it remains an iconic symbol of fashion many years later.
Pin-up fashion often includes plunging halter tops, dresses and playsuits, frilled skirts, fitted pencil skirts, nylons, seamed pantyhose, corset tops, and sky-high stilettos. Patent leather accessories, bright colors and contrasts and bright red lips are also popular accents. Pin-up fashion embraces individuality and allows women to mix and match colors and styles to create fierce, original outfits that suit them and their personal style perfectly.
There are hundreds of pin-up fashion boutiques all over the Internet, so if you’re overwhelmed with where to find the most authentic pin-up styles, these are some of the most widely recognized. Switchblade Stiletto, What Katie Did, Modcloth, Hepburn and Leigh, Babygirlboutique, and Lucky Diva are all filled with popular selections of pin-up fashion, dresses, tops, skirts and pants, shoes and accessories. For more of a retro rockabilly look along with your authentic pin-up fashion, check out Lolita Girl Fashion, Miss Hussy Clothing, Yvonne’s Inked Divas and Gents, Poison Candy Fashion, and Get Go Retro.
Curvy girls, conservative girls, fierce girls and colorful adventurous girls can all find pin-up fashion throughout these boutiques that perfectly suits them and their personal taste. Whether work appropriate cardigans and pencil skirts are part of your regular wear or you’re more into the corsets, frilly skirts and skimpy playsuits, pin-up fashion has something to accommodate your style. Curl your hair into voluminous waves, swipe on some red lipstick and black cat-eye liner, add in some seamed pantyhose and finish your outfit off with a pair of sky-high stilettos and your pin-up outfit will be fierce, fun and totally original!
Pin Up Costumes
Pin up costumes are a popular choice for women who have an affinity with the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s eras. Pin up costumes can be worn for a variety of events including costume parties, burlesque performances, or even a night on the town if you’re looking to go for an innocent yet classic look with a hint of seduction.
Pin up costumes are typically inspired by iconic “pin up” stars. They consist of basic pin up styles from icons such as Marilyn Monroe or Bettie Page, while others take a more burlesque or rockabilly approach, similar to that of Katy Perry or Dita Von Teese. These women give a modern, fierce touch to the classic pin up costumes and outfits.
With the wide variety of online boutiques specializing in pin up costumes, clothing, shoes and accessories, it is easy to channel the look of these women. If you love the style of Katy Perry but don’t know where to find such spectacular duds, check out Pin Up Girl Clothing or Miss Hussy Clothing. These stores offer an array of pin up, retro and vintage styles that can transform your day look and give it a pin up feel, or create a full blown pin up costume with a sexy halter or corset top, elegant flowing skirt, back-seamed pantyhose, and sky-high stilettos. Other popular pin up costume boutiques include Starlets & Harlets, Dismantled Fashions, and Whirling Turban. If you’re looking for a military-inspired pin up costume, check out Pony Maedchen, an adorable pin up boutique with navy, army and anchor-themed pin up costumes and outfits.
The perfect pin up costume is not complete without the confidence and attitude of a true, classic pin up girl. It takes a woman who adores and is confident with her body, whether she’s an XS or XXL. The beauty of pin up costumes and fashion is that they are designed to embrace women of all ages, shapes and sizes. There is no “one size fits all” associated with pin up couture. Lastly, complete your outfit with some dashing red lipstick, a swipe of black cat-eye liner, and elegantly curl and volumize your hair. Pick out some lacy lingerie from Purrfect Pineapples to wear under your costume for the perfect finishing touch!

Retro, sweet and innocent pinup swimsuits take on a rockabilly edge when paired with lots of ink, a sense of camp and candy-colored hair. But pinup fashion today can be as classic and classy as modern burlesque performer Dita Von Teese’s style and as filled with glamour as Hollywood in the 1930s.
Let’s face it, fashion today fits very few real ladies and who has time to work out 4 hours a day eating only broth for muscles like Madonna’s? More importantly: who really wants to look like an emaciated bodybuilder when they can work with what they were born with and be sexier without all the fuss and hunger pangs. Modern pin up fashion stores like Pin Up Couture, Dismantled Fashions and Bernie Dexter Clothing are here to the rescue providing perfect pinup styles for ladies big and small.
Pulling off pinup fashion takes guts. Covering looks from smoking-hot calendar vixen to downright demure girl-next-door, pinup fashion works with a woman both inside and out. Personality comes first when choosing a pin up outfit. Are you a glamour-puss? Don a satin bombshell with matching high, high heels like Whirling Turban’s Chinese Bombshell Dress. Are you naughty yet nautical? Then squeeze into the ‘Hello Buoys’ wiggle dress from designer Moxie Minx. Feeling daytime-cute and authentically retro? Slip on a Vivien of Holloway Day Dress with a square neck and circle skirt made from vintage patterned cotton.
Once the style has been selected, the classic design and tailored fit of modern pinup clothing hugs, squeezes, pushes, lifts and lets wiggle free the most sexual parts of the female body exposed for all the world to see and admire. Pinup fashion creates a slim waste and an hourglass shape while lending a nostalgic flavor to its teasing sex appeal. Who would think that so little skin shown could imply so much? But rather than hitting you over the head with body exposure, a true pinup look takes its heat from innuendo and lets the imagination do the rest.
Pin Up Fashion
Pin up fashion is all about lined red lips, curvy hips, polka dots and cherries, leopard prints and zebra stripes, buxom busts, pencil skirts and peep-toe shoes. Glamorous, fabulously feminine and flattering to all figures, the pin up look is both a statement of individual style and an art requiring a dash of boldness to pull off.
Decade after decade the world continues to be obsessed with pin up styles and for good reason! Classic pin up girls from the ‘30s ‘40s and ‘50s emerged during a time of greatest despair yet were filled with innocence, hope and straight-up sex appeal. Coming up on the heels of the Great Depression and gaining popularity through World War II, pin up fashions flattered the female figure like no other while combining the apparently opposite characteristics of girlish innocence and voluptuousness.
Pin up fashions enhance what is already there, then mask or redistribute anything extra in an exceptionally becoming manner. In the 1940s, a bikini swimsuit showed what was then considered a scandalous amount of skin that currently seems almost chaste, yet they continue to this day to be undeniably sexy. Cute, colorful and distinctly sensual, pin up clothing is traditional and wholesome, enhancing female attributes while seductively covering them.
If you like pin up fashion but have no idea where to start, begin with classic retro undergarments to shape your physique, like bullet bras, girdles, corsets and nylon back-seamed stockings found in shops like Ars Vivendi, Girdlebound or Purrfect Pineapples. Next, select your silhouette; if you want your hips to appear curvier, choose a pencil skirt, or narrow your waistline with a circle skirt over a petticoat. For an evening out grab a rockabilly dress from stores like My Baby Jo or Moxie Minx. For daytime choose an innocent or sophisticated day dress from Pinup Girl Clothing, Overdue or Unique Vintage. Always select styles that enhance your attributes, like a V-neck, peasant or sweetheart-collared blouse. Finally, slip into some teetering heels from Baby Girl Boutique or Starlets and Harlots, coif your hair into gentle, tumbling locks, line your eyes and paint on pouty lips to top off the pin up fashion look to perfection.
Miss Hussy Clothing
Miss Hussy Clothing was established and created by Hayley Stoneham in Adelaide, Australia, where she studied fashion and business management. Her largest fan was her grandmother, who worked as a tailor in a department store in the 1940′s. Her mother is her main source of inspiration, with whom she shares a passion for everything vintage and retro.
Hayley began selling the Miss Hussy Clothing line on Ebay, and after a great deal of success, began selling the label on a Myspace fan page she created for the clothing line as a store front. She moved to Melbourne, Australia, and began producing her clothing designs in large quantities so she could begin marketing Miss Hussy as a professional label. She began selling her pieces in Las Vegas, Nevada and even lived there for some time, but the true roots of the brand remain in her home country of Australia. To this day, the clothing pieces are still manufactured in Australia.
Hayley’s love for vintage style and clothing of the 1950′s came about due in part to the fact that the clothing from that era embraced curves and women of various sizes, and since she claims to have never been entirely thin, felt more comfortable in these styles. She creates pieces that look as if they came directly out of a clothing catalog from the pinup and retro era’s, and enjoys creating colorful dresses, swinging skirts, pencil skirts, stylish and form fitting tops, and plenty of retro embellishments. She also garnered inspiration from her mother’s closet, using the ideas and pieces to create a similar style that is fresh, young and lively. Old Hollywood films are another popular piece of inspiration for Miss Hussy Clothing.
Hayley continues to draw inspiration from retro era’s to create pieces that are beautiful, high quality and embellished with retro and vintage looking patterns and buttons. Whether it be polka dots, leopard print, floral prints or the classic pinup sailor look, quality clothing is the main priority of Hayley as she creates Miss Hussy Clothing. She continues to develop more pieces for online shops, and offers them at affordable Australian prices that range from 65 to 130 dollars.
