Emerging in the 20s of the last century, the pin-up style remains in demand among modern fashionistas. Invented to raise the morale of American soldiers, he does not leave men indifferent today. Of course, who can pass by a charming sexy beauty with mouth-watering forms, whose playful outfit strives to fall to the floor? The images of coquettes were very diverse: housewives, sailors, glamorous ladies with small dogs.
A characteristic plot of a photo of girls in the pinup style is everyday scenes from life in which the photographer or artist takes the heroines by surprise. A falling dress strap, a skirt caught in the breeze, stockings with garters, while the beauties themselves flirt with the viewer with their eyes and smile invitingly.
Many Hollywood stars used the pin-up style: Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe, Lana Turner, Carol Landis, Veronica Gardner. Their photographs were full of advertising posters and magazine covers. One of the brightest representatives of our time is Dita von Tees. In addition, Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, Scarlett Johansson and others seek to imitate the images of America's first sex symbols.
If your hearttouches the pinup - the style is a legend, that is, there are several rules on how to transform into a retro beauty. Let's start with the face: a clear but smooth eyebrow line, black wide arrows, peach-pink blush and sensual red lips. Fingernails and toenails should also be varnished in bright colors.
Medium length hair should be styled in waves, as Rita Hayworth did in her time. Owners of short and very long hair can make voluminous curls. And then pick them up with a ribbon or bandana, depending on your outfit.
The piquancy of women's images of those years was given by dresses that, for all their openness, left room for men's fantasies. Of course, every fashionista sought to give her hourglass silhouette to her figure. The length of the skirt can be any: from mini to maxi. It is not forbidden to wear high-waisted shorts.
Things in the wardrobe of a girl who prefers pin-up style are quite diverse. These are pencil skirts, and shirts with ties, and sheath dresses. Military elements are often used: metal buttons, stripes, shoulder straps. Among trousers, choose styles that emphasize the hips: skinny or with patch pockets. On a cold day, a cardigan, cropped jacket or bolero is perfect.
Give preference to plain fabrics of rich colors. The following prints would be appropriate: peas, fruits, hearts, flowers, Vichy cage and leopard. Don't forget about the deep neckline, which can be combined with the American armhole or straps.
Pin-up style pays great attention to accessories and shoes. Stiletto heels with an open toe can emphasize long legs. However, platforms, low heels and flats are also allowed. Be sure to accentuate your waist with a belt. Complete the look with silk gloves, oversized sunglasses, wide-brimmed berets or hats, clutch bags and gemstone jewelry.
