Pinup girl clothes have made a major comeback in the fashion world over the past several years. Pinup girl clothes is indicative of outfits frequently worn by fashionable women in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. These styles range from laid back outfits from formal wear, including but not limited to play suits, high cut shorts with halter tops, flowing poodle skirts to wear on the dance floor, fitted pencil skirts for dressy work attire, pedal pusher capri pants, penny loafer shoes, button down shirts, sky high stiletto heels, flashy, bold accessories, and much more.
Pinup girl clothes are made for women of all ages, shapes and sizes. They allow women to express their original style and taste while hugging their body and curves in a way that flatters them and shows off their natural assets. Pinup girls were not worried about conforming to a specific type of body type, rather they were into showing off what they have and expressing their individual beauty.
Pinup girl clothes take fearlessness and confidence to truly pull off. They are not shy or timid and they are proud of their style and individuality. Expression is key, and if you want to go for the full blown look, put on some bright red lipstick and black cat eye liner, curl up your hair and pin some of it back, and spritz on your favorite perfume. You’ll undoubtedly have everyone turning their heads!
When you think “Pinup Girl” the first though that comes to mind may be of those scantily clad vixens posed provocatively in Snap-On Tool Calendar pages or the unforgettable American fetish pinup Bettie Page.
It is quite true that the original pinup models were the sex symbols of their day and that their images gave happiness, hope and inspiration to the G.I.’s during World War II, but there is much more than sleazy-easy sex appeal to the pinup style. After all, glamorous and talented actresses in the 1930s and 1940s like Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich were considered pin up girls just as much as Jeanne Russell, Lana Turner and Betty Grable were, and Bette Davis’ personality is what really made her gorgeous.
Pinup girl style today looks back to the idealized glamour of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, but is inextricably linked today with burlesque shows, rockabilly music and custom cars. Modern cheesecake ladies combine their vintage outfits with tons of tattoos and hair dyed in primary colors and may even decorate their home in retro designs to complete their modern pinup girl lifestyle.
Fearless and modern with no qualms about enhancing her natural assets, pun most definitely intended, a pinup girl has confidence in her natural form, and takes pride in the grooming and formality necessary to achieve the pinup look. Sharing their strong feminine identity with the world, modern pinup ladies take the old styles a few steps forward and showcase bad-ass jewelry and patterns within their look like skulls, tattoo flashes or suggestive red cherries and barbed wire on top of their heavy ink.
A pinup girl today rejects the modern fashion trend that encourages unhealthy stick-thin women who would rather die than have a muffin top to keep on exercising and dieting in order to fit into H&M designs. Instead, she buys her clothing from designers and boutiques like Starlets and Harlots, Modemerr or Bettie Page Clothing and ‘structures her assets’ with corsets from Bibian Blue and exquisite lingerie from purveyors such as Kiss Me Deadly and Secrets in Lace. She steps out in style each day of the year and never for a moment regrets the figure she was born with.
Voluptuous, sensual and decidedly feminine, modern pinup fashion is a fresh and sexy take on the classic pinup girl look immortalized by models from Betty Grable to Bettie Page and by pinup artists like Gil Elvgren and Alberto Vargas.

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.
