Wiggle Dresses

Wiggle dresses give off a classic pin-up vibe and are a lot of fun to wear. The silhouette is slimming and accentuates your natural curves. Every size can wear a wiggle dress with a ruched waist. When it comes to parties or pin-up fashion photography, bright colors are constantly in style, while a sleek black dress is always a safe bet.

High Waist Shorts

If one thing is certain, the 1950s celebrated the waist. If you're looking for a stylish and fun way to show off your curves, high waist shorts are the perfect choice for summer

Circle Skirts

Circle skirts and swing skirts are a staple for any 50s-loving fashionista. As the name suggests, the style is designed by cutting a large circle shape into some fabric, with the inner circle making up the waist and the outer hem. For an added bonus, pop a petticoat underneath to really give the skirt volume and bounce.

Halter Style Swing Dresses

No pin-up wardrobe is complete without a halter dress in a fun print! From fruit (lemons, cherries) to Hawaiian themes or floral prints.

Pin-Up Fashion Accessories

Back Seam Thigh Highs

Pin-up is all about curves and legs, so you'll want to make your legs look as long as you can. Thigh-highs with a seam running up the back,  also known as rear seam stockings are a must with any vintage outfit. The ‘Lois’, one of Kix’ies rear seam styles in black, or the ‘Vanessa’ in nude with rear seam is a hit for any pinup look.

Peep-toe High-heeled Shoes

Peep-toe heels are a must-have to complete your outfit from head to toe. Because dancing was so popular during the era, many pin-up style shoes are surprisingly comfy. A pair of foxtrot-ready shoes was a must, of course.

T-Strap Shoes

Dance the night away with t-strap pump-heeled shoes. The T-strap design was made with straps over the top to provide a secure fit for dancing.
