Break out the eyeliner, hot rollers and bobby pins. Rockabilly fashion has experienced a comeback in Spring’s runways, but this trend is more than just a passing fashion fad. Read on to find out more about this iconic look!
During the 1950’s the youth of America embraced the sounds of rockabilly music and adopted the look, that has managed to survive decades. Rockabilly is a true love of the music, retro fashion and cars of the decade that inspired it. While some may view this as a passing trend, for me it is a true love of the 1950’s culture.
How to achieve the perfect Rockabilly look
- Stick to a black, red and white color scheme. This palette screams 1950’s.
- Look for interesting patterns such as leather jackets, gingham skirts, crepe soled shoes and vintage jeans.
- Invest in wayfarer sunglasses or knock offs of the same shape.
- Try a pair of saddle shoes to add a preppy edge!
