When you hear the word “rockabilly,” you probably think of Grease, Elvis and ’50s rock n’roll. Rockabilly is a lifestyle used to express love for the retro era. During the 50′s, we had Bettie Page, a genuine pinup who inspired many rockabilly girls within the fashion industry with her short, black, wavey hair.
If you’d like to dress in a rockabilly style, always start with shape There are two silhouettes that are particularly common in rockabilly culture. Big, flared skirts or dresses with a defined waist and tight top; or the slim tight bottom with a pencil skirt and tight shirt.
Red lipstick and a pair of high heels in the same colour blends very well with a flared, black and white polka dot dress. Other common clothing includes cardigans with swallows, cherry prints and anchors. By adding some color to your wardrobe, you can easily replicate the rockabilly era.
Your choice of clothing says a lot about your personality, who you are and what you want. The rockabilly style provides a touch of attitude, sensuality and confidence; and the clothing is a big part. You can develop the look further through your hairstyle and by giving yourself a doll-like appearence with makeup.
Creating a rockabilly hairstyle is not as difficult as it looks; and with a little practice, you can roll up any type of hair. Look up Victory rolls for a classic hairstyle that you can easily do at home with some simple tools. All you’ll need is a bottle of hairspray, a styling comb, a round brush and some pins. Investing in a good curler could also be a simple way to turn your hair into dreamy corkscrews. Feel free to experiment and don’t be afraid to color your hair when you’ve mastered the style.
When it comes to makeup, stick to your natural base using the right shade of foundation and powder. Less is more — there is a fine line in the rockabilly style between looking good and looking cheap.
Small changes to your eyebrows will go a long way. For a classic 50′s look fill in your eyebrows so they become thick and rich. Add plenty of eyeliner along the upper lash line and finish with a small wing in the eye’s outer edge. Finally, paint your lips in a bright red to add the finishing touches.

No new season is complete without a new season wardrobe. And no Spring wardrobe is complete a few patterned dresses!
Print is not dead! From galactic prints, animal print fabrics, black and white or bright designs, this Spring isn’t seeing any slow-down when it comes to rocking the patterned look.
Here are some tips to get you dress-ready this season:
Patterns are fun. Go crazy! This Sci Fi Dress from Style Stalker is the perfect example of Spring colour. Pink hues to stand out with some greys and blues to match any mood
2. Wear it short
Colourful prints are a massive statement, so keeping it short is a great way to wear an ‘out-there’ design. That way there’s a punch of pattern without long flowing fabrics getting in the way. As a general rule, bold patterns look better when dresses are short so the design doesn’t overwhelm.
3. Wear it long
Hold on…didn’t I just say keep it short?! I was totally kidding! Wear it short, wear it long, have fun! The only rule when it comes to patterns is to live a little!
4. There are no rules
5. Animal print: roar
You don’t have to go full leopard print from head to toe, but a little animal inspiration looks fab. Check out the 3D Leopard Dress from Blessed Are The Meek. From a distance, it doesn’t even scream ‘animal’, so it’s perfect for those wanting to ease into the whole jungle theme without going over the top.
6. Black and White
Bright colours and patterns freaking you out? Ease in slowly with some geometric prints and neutral black and white tones.
7. Shoes and Accessories
Team your patterned dress with plain accessories. Think black bangles, black heels and a plain bag. Pattern clashing with pattern is a look very few people can pull off. Let the dress speak for itself. This great Temple Dress from Meluri would look great with some black wedges. Although, according to number 4 above, there are no rules. So if you think you can rock a patterned dress with some bright red shoes, go for it.

Once considered a fashion disaster and worn only by pensioners on the beach and retired people not interested by fashion and style, nowadays the sandals with socks are considered as one of the top fashion style and one of the best trend for the late Summer and Autumn. Such style is chosen by the stars and well known fashion icons, such as David Beckham and Justin Bieber. Definitely the extravagant vision is fashionable during the hot summer days, but according to many experts and fashion designers such style will step back in the Autumn and will resign against the more comfortable and conservative vision.
“Sandals with socks are the epitome of mistakes in the British summer style. While the fashion world says they are fashionable, our customers have designated them as the worst look of all time”, said spokesman Ed Watson chain stores, who commented this interesting and scandalous fashion trend. Sandals with socks were identified as the biggest fashion faux pas of all time in a poll of chain stores Debenams in a publication based of the designers from the store.

In the best case, they must be combined with a white shirt that can be combined in a manner consistent with your style.
