Finding the perfect dress to accentuate your pinup girl style can be somewhat difficult. There are so many different styles to choose from, which can overwhelm you if you're not sure where to start. Not to worry, though-- the best thing about getting that pinup style just right is owning all types of dresses! To get you started, check out some of the best patterns you can choose from. Classic Pinup Dress Personify the 1950's style in a classic dress pattern, like the Hell Bunny Honor Dress. With a full skirt and a cinched waist, this dress will show off all your beautiful curves. Accessorize with simple pumps or peep toe heels, red lipstick, and victory rolls in your hair. Many dresses in this pattern are made of dotted fabric, solid colors, or fabrics with fruit or flowers on them. The bust of classic pinup dresses will be haltered or have short sleeves and a collar. Swing Dress Pattern Swing dresses were popular dresses to dance in, which makes this pattern a great choice for going out at night. With cap sleeves and a fitted bodice, the top half of the dress will accentuate your body nicely. The skirt is full, but a petticoat can always be added underneath for a little extra something. Get that vintage look with this perfect pinup dress. Tartan Pinup Dress Tartan dresses are dresses with a plaid pattern. Tartan was very popular in the 50's and is making a comeback in pinup styles today. Make your style pinup girl ready by wearing a dress with an A-line skirt and cap sleeves on the bodice. Add a feminine touch by cinching the waist with a bow in the back. Wear with your favorite pair of pumps and a classic shade of lipstick. Tiki Style Dress Go Hawaiian in a vintage style dress with a floral pattern. With a halter-style bodice and an A-line skirt, you'll be summer-ready in no time. At Jackdaw Landing, this pattern is beautifully rendered in the Lucky 13" dress. Style your hair in loose waves and wear peep toe heels to complete this look. Floral Pinup Dress One of the most popular pinup style dresses is the classic floral pattern. Flowers are the perfect way to show off your vintage style, while still looking young and feminine. At Jackdaw Landing's online boutique, you can choose from different dress styles in many different colors and floral patterns. Whether you choose to wear a dress with a collar, a halter-top, or one with cap sleeves, you'll be guaranteed to find the perfect dress to fit your style. Sailor Style Dress One of the most popular pinup styles from the 50's is the sailor pinup girl. With a nautical style dress in blue and white, and red pumps, you too can nab this style as your own. Another style to try would be a pencil skirt in a darker solid color and a fitted bodice in a lighter color. Complete the look with classic pinup style lipstick and victory rolls. At Jackdaw Landing, you'll be outfitted in beautiful, retro style clothing for all sizes. Accessorize your new dress with shoes, jewelry, handbags, and more at reasonable prices. The online boutique also has sizing charts if you're unsure what size you might be.
