Psychobilly originated as a style of music that incorporates punk rock, rockabilly and a variety of other genres. It often incorporates horror, science fiction, and gothic themes into the styles, which also have a significant impact on the growth and evolution of psychobilly fashion.
Psychobilly fashion incorporates punk, gothic and of course rockabilly styles to create diverse looks among men and women. In recent fashion, psychobilly styles have taken a bit of a rocked-out, tattooed, bright purple hair, heavily pierced look. Tattoo prints, bright colors, skulls, plaid patterns, leather and heavy metal hardware are all common components of psychobilly styles.
To fill your closet with some psychobilly fashion styles, check out some popular online boutiques to find outfits and clothing pieces that suit you and your own personal look.. For a feminine goth look check out Devil Doll, a sexy boutique filled with dresses, tops and skirts to mix and match with greaser jeans or your favorite pair of shoes. Rockabilly-Clothing.De incorporates psychobilly styles into their diverse range of clothes, ranging from pin up to retro to greaser styles. For more of a customized and naughty psychobilly look, Iron Fist encourages you to “find your passion” in their array of rockabilly and psychobilly High Heels and Shoes. Cats Like Us and The Atomic Boutique are especially for rockabilly and psychobilly chicks who want June Cleaver style with a rocker edge.
No psychobilly fashion or outfit is complete without sexy bright red lips, fierce cat-eye liner, and teased pin curls for a retro, punk rock look. Finish off a psychobilly dress with some back seamed pantyhose and sky-high stilettos, or put on your favorite Diesel jeans and Converse All Stars with that vintage band t-shirt. Lastly, don’t forget your fierce attitude and confidence, as no psychobilly fashion is complete without it.

Starlets & Harlets
Starlets & Harlets is a huge Los Angeles-based online retro-and-more clothing store which began humbly as a pin up, rockabilly, burlesque, punk and Goth clothing shop on eBay, selling sexy apparel and accessories.
After not too long their sales exploded, thanks to their many loyal customers, and that helped to make them the official business that they are today; currently triple the size of their original store.
Their inventory is truly enormous. For retro ladies from slim to plus sizes, they offer hot 1950s, rockabilly and swing dresses; cheesecake modern pin up girls will love their wiggle, pencil and little black dresses and their cute, cute rompers. Love Burlesque? Not to worry! Starlets & Harlets Burlesque and Burlesque pin up section has a mind-boggling array of products from bloomers and panties to waist-cinchers, knee-high punk rock socks, pasties, bustiers and corsets, bobby socks, garters, boas, bras and much more. Fetish-wear and bondage, rockabilly thigh-highs, shoes, bags, belt buckles; you name it, they have it. And for men of all styles from rockabilly and psychobilly to punk, goth and even futurebilly, Starlets & Harlets has pomade, wife beaters, hoodies, Bettie Page button down shirts, rock shirts, skull watches, retro clothing galore.
Started with the mission of providing customers with top-notch clothing and accessories at a mere fraction of the suggested retail price, Starlets & Harlots has remained true to their principles. Visitors to their online store will see both the ‘List Price’ and the much lower ‘Sale Price’ that they will pay, which is often a discount of more than 50%. Very nice! And for deals better than their normally reduced prices, check out their ‘Final Markdowns’ page for savings of up to 80 %.
Their clothing and lingerie sizing chart is in inches and U.S. sizes though Starlets & Harlots ships both domestically and internationally, with shipping rates based on order price. Returns of unworn items in original packaging are accepted for credit within 15 days of purchase, because unfortunately a large percentage of their customers had gotten into the bad habit of returning items after one special wearing. In the event a customer wants to cancel an order before it has shipped, Starlets & Harlots offers store credit by their approval via e-mail.
Lucky 13 Apparel is a Santa Ana, California –based grassroots, Kustom Kulture, punk rock, psychobilly retro clothing line that was started way back in 1991 in Bobby Kloetzly’s Southern California garage.
At that time, Bobby was living the D. I.Y. lifestyle, making punked-out low-brow art, designing tattoos and working on kustom motorcycles and cars so it was only natural for him to expand to producing psychobilly rock-n- roll clothing for hardcore gore-hounds, bikers, hot-rodders and screeching hell-on-wheels psychobellas.
Still going strong more than a decade later, Lucky 13 remains true to its grassroots and is a relatively small operation of less than 60 employees distributing clothing online and in shops all over the world, but you won’t find them just walking into any suburban Hot Topic. True to their punk ideals, they distribute to like-minded shops around the globe and can be found online at their Grease, Gas and Glory shop, Pin Up Girl Clothing, Baby Girl Boutique, Tattoo Apparel and Chopper Wire, just to name a few.
