High-waisted pencil skirts, pristine victory rolls and figure-hugging dresses, they say that rock n roll will last forever, but what about the fashion trends of the 1950’s?
Stemming from the Rock ‘n’ Roll generation, Rockabilly became more than just a style of rock, it paved the way of a new lifestyle. This combination of rock & ‘hillbilly’ country music forever changed the style of a generation.
So why is Rockabilly so hot as a trend? This is a style that mixes basic style must-haves with a creative and unique look - that can be either classic or extreme. Even high-street stores of today take inspiration from the Rockabilly era, with tight fitting pencil skirts, leopard print, polka dots and sweat-heart necklines all popular items on their shelves. Even jewellery is following the age old trend, featuring swallows and tattoo-inspired designs.
We think that embracing your inner Rockabilly girl will definitely give you that edge in the fashion stakes! Buying into the Rockabilly look simply isn’t a fad or a teenage phrase, it’s a statement and style that can be embraced by everyone. Here at The Tiger Milly Marketplace we have a variety of Rockabilly-style, 50s Dresses for you to choose from, so why not update your wardrobe today?
