Fashion Friday - Rockabilly Pin Up Girl



Pin Up Girls, damn do they know how to work it!
We are definitely inspired by the sexy generation of Rockabilly Pin Up Girls -  that bold red lip and sexy hour glass silhouette. 
Today's episode of Fashion Friday we'll be styling and teaching you the basics of how to achieve a pin up girl outfit in the year 2014.



OUTFIT #1 - "The bigger the better"
One principle to remember when going for a pin up girl look - curves! Curves, curves, curves, curves, curves! 
To really accentuate the sight of curves I have paired a high waist pencil skirt with a low neck lined T-shirt. 
Notice how the pencil skirt has horizontal lines? That was deliberate my dear! 
The horizontal line will accentuate a more curvier bottom. 
To create more definition add a waist belt and top it off with a beret and a pair of Mary Janes. 

Black Low Neckline Tshirt - "Label Of Graded Goods"
Monochrome Stripped Pencil Skirt - "NOW"
Cream Waist Belt- "Suite Boutique"


ACCESSORIES

Mary Jane Heels - "Wittner"
Leopard Textured Beret - "Valley Girl"

OUTFIT #2 - "I Cheer For His Football Team."

Go for a more fun preppy Pin Up Girl look by pairing a high waist skater skirt with a fitted top. 
If there's one thing Pin Up Girls do, it's adding a hint of bold red to their outfits. Don't be afraid to splurge on a red item, add a red cardigan, such as this Varsity one. 

Fitted Striped Top - "Girl Express"
Tweed Waisted Skater Skirt - "Girl Express"
Red Varsity Cardigan -  "Avocado"

For that girly touch wear a pair of white mid length socks and white casual oxfords.

Mid Length Socks - Purchased in South Korea



OUTFIT #3 - "Pop Yo Collar"
About to head out for a day of shopping? Go for a more casual vibe by using that Chambray Top (that every man and his dog owns), tying it at the waistline, remember to pop that collar for a bit more attitude that a Pin Up Girl's character always have. 
Opt for high waist, tight fitting bottoms - pairing these two once again plants a more hour glass figure. 

Chambray Top - "SES"
White High Waist Tight Bottoms - "SES" 


ACCESSORIES

Oxford Flats - "Hot Options"
Thick White Bangle - "Diva"
Gold Chain - "Ebay"
Chunky Gold Watch - "Pierre Cardin"



 OUTFIT #4 - "Heading Out Of Town"
Going for a much more casual vibe, pair a red checkered crop top with high waist shorts.
Don't forget to wear a headband (or bandana) and a pair of casual white converse sneakers. This outfit is perfection for the Summer time!

High Waisted Denim Shorts - Made by yours truly. 


ACCESSORIES
White Sneakers - "Converse All Star"

Of course, all these outfit ideas would be in vain without the Rockabilly Pin Up Girl make up look to match! So view our current Pin Up Girl Make Up Tutorial and learn how you recreate and pull off a Pin Up Girl Make Up look!

Fashion Friday - Basic Ulzzang Stylin'


Hi guys! On today's blog post I am introducing to you all *drum roll* "Fashion Friday!" *yay!*. From fashion inspiration and outfit ideas, to look books and transformations, Fashion Friday will have it all!
To accompany last weeks "Ulzzang Basics" make up tutorial we uploaded, we have made a compilation of 4 Ulzzang outfit ideas. 

Basic Ulzzang Make Up Tutorial




OUTFIT 1 - "Neutral Girl"

One thing to keep in mind when going for an Ulzzang Fashion look is that they looooove their layering pieces. So don't be afraid to play with different lengths and textures. 

For this look I concentrated more on neutral and earth tones. A perfect colour palette in the cooler seasons.


  • Earth Coloured Floral Dress: "BY OLI"
  • Mustard Knit Jumper : "Redberry Fashion"
  • Camel Knit Scarf : "Koom"
  • Cream Knit Beret Beanie: "Ebay"
  • Camel Suede Ankle Boot:  "Grosby"





Accessories


  • Camel Suede Ankle Boot - "Grosby"
  • Camel Knit Scarf - "Koom"
  • Cream Knit Beret Beanie - "Ebay"


OUTFIT 2 - "My Girl Has Edge" 

When it comes to Ulzzang fashion, don't ever be afraid to mix cultures. This outfit has a bit of both worlds, using soft silhouettes with edgy and sharp textures.
The fact that a girly peter pan collared blouse and knit cardigan is paired with a pleather skater skirt makes it the perfect combination for Ulzzang fashion. 
  • Black Pleather Skirt - "Girl Express"
  • Watermelon Peter Pan Collared Blouse - "Avocado"
  • Knit Cardigan - "David Jones" Vintage Find
  • Black Bowlers Hat - "Ebay"
  • Black Flats - "Girl Express"
Accessories
  • Black Flats - "Girl Express"
  • Black Bowlers Hat - "Ebay"

 Outfit 3 - "Rock Me Not"

 Over-sized is an understatement when it comes to Ulzzang Styling. Think of your body as a hanger, where you just put layers upon layers of clothing.
For this look I paired an over-sized casual jacket with an over-sized graphic print T-shirt. 
To create proportions to the body and to show some figure I styled them with a pair of Charcoal leggings for the bottom.
  • Charcoal Legging - "Valley Girl"
  • Over-sized Graphic Print T - "Kani Kira"
  • Over-sized Casual Jacket - "Valley Girl"
  • Red Bowlers Hat - "Ebay"
  • Brown Oxford Flats - "Hot Options"
Accessories
  • Brown Oxford Flats - "Hot Options"
  • Red Bowlers Hat - "Ebay"

 Outfit 4 - "I use his clothes"

 For this last outfit I went on the more boyish side of things and like I've mentioned before, over-sized pieces is a regular with Ulzzang fashion. 
A large over-sized knit jumper (with an owl for a girlish touch) is worn off the shoulder and is paired with a pair of distressed, light washed boyfriend jeans (that have been rolled up to ankle length for a more casual look). 
To accentuate the more casual look to this outfit I styled it with a pair of ankle length combat boots (with silver hardware and buckles on the side) and a khaki cap. 
  • Distressed Boyfriend Jeans - Made by yours truly
  • Over-sized Knit Owl Jumper - "Chica Booty"
  • Khaki Cap - "Cap & Tomato"
  • Black Ankle Length Combat Boots - "Valley Girl"
Accessories
  • Black Ankle Length Combat Boots - "Valley Girl"
  • Khaki Cap - "Cap & Tomato"


I hope you all enjoyed this Fashion Friday and get inspired!
