5 Trendy Style Tips for Updating Your Pin-up Look

The 1940s were the era of a ground-breaking fashion trend ‒ the exceptional pin-up style. Many loved and worshiped the style, while some iconic women of the time presented it magnificently. Once you take a look at the clothing choices, makeup and hairstyles, you can instantly notice that pin-up girls can very well be a synonym of the Old Hollywood Glamour. Only a bit of skin exposure was more than enough for women to express their sassiness, but also elegance; looking stunning yet leaving plenty to the imagination.

The right dress

Halter neck pencil dress is one of the best choices for your pin-up style. A red shade with white polka dots will look amazing on your curves. Thanks to the boned and lined bodice, your bust will have a perfect support, while the waist is excellently nipped, thus forming a figure of a true goddess. A cap sleeve sweetheart neck dress can be another amazing choice. Whether you choose to wear it at work, a formal party or a casual event, the relaxed and fresh look is guaranteed. The sweetheart neckline in combination with cap sleeves, and a ruched bodice featuring back zip, make the dress classy and feminine, so it should definitely be your go-to outfit for the summer.


Circle skirts scream pin-up style, which is why you must own at least one for the ultimate pin-up style features. Whether you go for the blue one with polka dots, or the colourful one with a floral pattern, a high-waisted circle skirt will amazingly accentuate your tiny waist and make you look incredibly feminine. Furthermore, you can’t have a gorgeous pin-up outfit without a pencil skirt. A red high waisted skirt with a back button and zipper, fully-lined and made to hug your curves flawlessly is the perfect piece of clothing to match the rest of the pin-up clothes.

Top to match

Where there’s a skirt, there is a top to pair it with, so you can easily have a stunning pin-up outfit. From halter neck, through gypsy tops, and all the way to t-shirts with a cheeky print, a pin-up style craves a hot top. Match it with a sexy skirt or a pair of tight high-waisted pants, and you’re in for a treat. If the weather gets chilly, you can add a stylish sweater to the combination. In a sea of fashionable womens knitwear, find the one that will perfectly go with your desired outfit and you’ll look amazing.


You can’t imagine a pin-up outfit without a trendy belt. Therefore, consider having at least a black, white and red belt. From wide to skinny belts, you can always have a different final touch to the beautiful ensemble. Hair flowers look stunning in combination with red lipstick, white cheeks and the rest of the trademark pin-up makeup. A head scarf is simply a must-have when we talk about pin-up style, so feel free to shop for any colour you think will flatter you. Consider vintage black or red nylon scarves to begin with, and later upgrade it as your wish.


You’ll never see a pin-up girl without neatly groomed eyebrows. A perfect arch was obligatory, alongside muted brown eyeshadow on crease, and heavily-lined eyelids. A winged eyeliner and a beauty mark above the upper lip is a well-known signature of a pin-up style. A matte red lipstick is a finishing touch no pin-up girl will leave the house without, so be ready to invest in the red shade that complements your skin tone.

Final thoughts

When you want to look both classy and sexy, without revealing too much, go for the pin-up style. With the previously mentioned tips, you’ll look gorgeous, so be sure to consider them the next time you want to upgrade your pin-up style.
