Women's Vintage & Rockabilly Fashion

Updated on August 25, 2012

...and by "vintage" I mean anything from the 1950s and earlier...

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by the way women dressed in those days. They proved that it's possible for a woman to show very little skin and still be incredibly sexy. The hair, the make-up, the clothing, the accessories & even the people; Everything about that era was simply BEAUTIFUL. The following pictures will prove this. Enjoy them...

Eartha Kitt

Elizabeth Taylor

Lucille Ball

Audrey Hepburn

I Love Rockabilly!

Rockabilly combines rock-n-roll and country (which was often referred to as hillbilly music) music which dates back to the early 1950s.

What goes with rockabilly music? Why rockabilly fashion, of course! With rockabilly fashion, you get all the beautiful vintage styles we all know and love but with a more modern twist. Bold colors & patterns, pin-curls & flowers in your hair, skulls, vintage inspired shoes, anything goes.

See the following pictures of Bernie Dexter, a beautiful rockabilly model who proves just how sexy & cute a gal can be in rockabilly fashion.

Classy. Beautiful. Sexy.
