Retro dresses are made to flatter women of all shapes, sizes and ages, while reflecting the Vintage and Rockabilly styles of the 1940′s, ‘50′s, and ’60′s era. They are made with colorful, pattern-filled fabrics and go from skin tight sexy styles to vibrant, flowing and ruffled skirts.
Women of all sizes can pull off retro dresses, as they are not tailored for one specific woman. They embrace curves and femininity and are not for the faint of heart. It takes a bold attitude and fierce confidence to truly pull off a retro dress with perfect style and grace.
Retro dresses often come in a variety of bright colors and bold patterns. Leopard print, zebra stripes and polka dots are just some of the popular retro dress patterns. Bright yellows, reds and pinks mixed with black and white accents, sharp belts and funky buttons. Modemerr is one popular boutique specializing in retro dresses, while Purrrfect Pineapples and Poison Candy Fashion provide the perfect accessories to complete your look. No retro dress is complete without sky-high stiletto pumps, a thick statement belt, and bold eyeliner and bright red lipstick. A true retro dress reflects the classic style within each woman, embracing her curves and femininity while accenting her true beauty and personal style.
Stop Staring Clothing and Get Go Retro are two popular boutiques that sell retro dresses. And since no retro dress or outfit is complete without sexy undergarments, What Katie Did provides everything you need to complete your outfit from the inside out including vintage lingerie and slinky, seductive slips and undergarments.
Retro dresses can suit any woman and her personal taste. No matter how girly or tomboy-ish a girl may seem, there is a retro dress out there for her. Since military was such an integral part of the retro era, there are even sailor and military inspired dresses from a variety of boutiques, particularly Pony Maedchen, a shop representing pin up and military inspired dresses and other pieces of clothing. If the retro sailor look suits you well, look no further than this shop.
Personal style is key to looking sexy in retro dresses, so find something that reflects who you are and you’ll be rocking a fierce retro look in no time!
Bettie Page Clothing
Always sexy, their impeccably styled clothes collection boasts singles and separates, accessories and t-shirts for every occasion, event and mood. Bettie Page clothing designs combine 1950s-era patterning with modern fabrics and decade-dashing flourishes to create spunky, original retro-esque appeal.
Bettie Page Clothing’s founder and designer, Tatyana Khomyakova, originally studied fashion and theater in her home country of Russia. A long-time fan of alternative clothing design and outsider art, Tatyana modeled professionally in Russia and the United States all the while longing to break away from the faddish high-fashion world and start her own line of timeless, voluptuous styles to enhance natural feminine beauty and mystique. True to her dreams, Tatyana opened her first brick-and-mortar Bettie Page Clothing store just one year before the eponymous Queen of Pin up passed away and I for one hope her resurgent popularity late in life gave the Tease from Tennessee some much-deserved happiness.
At Bettie Page you’ll find feminine yet demure circle skirts, afternoon dresses and oh-so-cute and sexy sailor pantsuits; cocktail dresses, military-style outfits, pencil skirts, the tightest bombshell dresses around and simple-yet-striking striped Capri pants. They offer tight, skin-baring dresses where the precipitous neckline and ambitiously skyward skirt slit almost meet and innocent separates like demure blouses and ruffled skirts that when combined create a dead-on MaryAnn.
You can visit Bettie Page Clothing boutiques in 3 locations in California and 2 locations in Las Vegas, Nevada or just browse their online shop. Their website provides excellent instructions for measuring all of those lovely curves and a sizing chart to help you select the perfect body-hugging fit. For questions you can e-mail or call their local retail store numbers. Bettie Page Clothing accepts Discover, MasterCard, Visa and American Express. Returns can be made for exchange only within 60 days of purchase, no refunds. If any item is damaged when being shipped it will replaced at no charge.
