The Pin Up style tends to be slightly more feminine when compared to the rockabilly style. This look is more vintage inspired with looks being very closely modeled on styles (mainly) from the 40’s and 50’s. For the Pin up style girls often revert back to vintage patterns to produce garments that are known as “vintage reproductions” circa 1950 as in our Miss Happ Vintage Dress (below), which was on original Vogue pattern from 1954.
Compared to the rockabilly girls who have a very noticeable rebellious look about them with their tattooed bodies and bright hair, pin up girls have a softer, more feminine look, and often don’t have tattoos – or if they do, they are small and understated. True Pinup girls are gracious and genteel and often remain true to the era. The Burlesque style is often closely associated with pin up – well-known model Dita von Teese is pin up personified!
And that's it....in a nutshell :)
