Pin Up Outfits
Pin up outfits are for the fearless, retro inspired woman who is not afraid to make a statement. Typically reflecting styles worn in the 1950s and 1960s, pin up outfits are often associated with Bettie Page, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. Modern day divas like Dita Von Teese and Katy Perry have been seen sporting pin up goods, and there is no denying that pin up, retro and rockabilly style has certainly made a comeback in the fashion world.

Pin up outfits often incorporate form-fitting dresses, playsuits, tops and pants, colorful accent pieces and bright contrasts, feminine nylons and shoes, bold accessories, and prints such as leopard print or polka dots. They can also be mixed with modern styles, using a hint of pin up such as a plunging neckline or flared ruffle skirt for the swingy, flirty effect.
