Bulletin Board: Rockabilly
I’ve been loving a retro-glam look lately, and I’ve always been a sucker for a bouffant. I think my love of rockabilly might have something to do with the babysitter I had growing up. She used to put on Elvis Presley (who she referred to as her ‘husband’— Am I the only one who knows elderly people who do this?)records and we would dance around her basement to Hound Dog.
Get The Look
Outfit #1 is my modernized 50s look. I updated classic Keds and cat-eye readers with boyfriend jeans and a graphic plaid shirt. I think a great pair of nude or navy pumps would look amazing with this as well.
For Outfit #2, I wanted to highlight the sexy-glam element of the Rockabilly scene. I am extremely curious about bodysuits. I’ve never worn one, but a lot of people seem to love them, and I like how they accent curves. I paired the body suit with a more conservative looking A-line skirt and leopard print bag. Basic t-strap shoes get a second look with studded details and a floral headband adds a playful touch.
What Do You Think?
Are you a rockabilly junky? Do you sport a bouffant regularly? Can you give me more info about bodysuits? I’d love to hear from you!
