How To Dress As a Rockabilly Babe

 

Rockabilly style is rock and roll inspired 1950s fashion which is quite interesting because of its bold use of colors and patterns. Rockabilly fashion is all about femininity, glamour, attitude and immaculate hair and makeup.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to the style you like; a perfect rockabilly babe from your outfit to your hairs and accessories. Let’s get started.

Tops and Blouses:

Pick the right top or blouse for your rockabilly look. Stay away from spaghetti-strap style. Show some skin and pick some halter top or button-down blouse.

Colors

Red, black, blue and white are the dominant colors of rockabilly style. Try to select tops and shoes in these colors.

Skirts and Pants:

A high-waist pencil skirt is a must to complete the retro rockabilly look. Want extra bold? Pick a red skirt. However, if skirts aren’t your thing, invest in some ankle-length skin tight pants.

Hair Styling:

To keep up with Rockabilly theme, opt for some classic Bettie bangs or fringes, hair rolls, and vintage waves. Pick some Bandanas, roses or bows to complete the hair styling.

Make-up:

Bright and bold makeup is rockabilly fashion staple. For the ideal look, put on bright red lipstick with perfectly winged black eyeliner. Flaunt the spotless skin and rosy cheeks with the right application of foundation and blush.
