Top 5 Rockabilly/Pinup/Vintage Essentials - Accessories

This blog post is the top 5 essentials I personally think every rockabilly/pinup/vintage lady should accessorize their outfits with.

Starting off with
 No 1.  Shoes

 In the picture on the left are some examples of  shoes you can invest in to add to your vintage inspired outfit.
 From the top left, going clockwise is a pair of peep-toe heels, a pair of saddle shoes, a pair of sling-back cork wedges and a pair of cute flats. Some other mentionable shoes are T-bar dancing shoes, Mary-janes, creepers and a pair of kitten heels.

You can buy any of these shoes from ebay, any general shoe stores and just about any rockabilly/pinup/alternative stores.

Here are some examples of shoes I wear, from time to time.

No. 2  Jewellery

No rockabilly/pinup outfit isn't complete without adding some jewellery pieces to the outfit your wearing at the time!
In the picture on the left are some examples of jewellery items to add to your outfits! From the top left, going clockwise are tiki-style bangles, a beautiful brooch, a cherry necklace and anchor earrings.

You can buy these type of jewellery items from ebay, etsy, vintage stores/fair's, or just about any store that sells rockabilly/alternative clothing and accessories.

Here are some jewellery items, I like to wear.

No. 3 Hair scarf/bandana


 Hair scarves and bandanas are another essential accessory item to add to your vintage inspired outfits! There are quite a number of ways to wear a hair scarf, like the gorgeous ladies are doing so in the picture on the left.
I find looking up YouTube tutorials is the best way to find out how to wear your hair scarf/bandana, that suits to your taste.

You can buy these hair essentials from ebay, vintage stores or just about any rockabilly/pinup stores.

Here I am wearing some of my scarf's I own.
No. 4   Hair flowers


Adding a hair-flower to your hair, is another great accessory item to add to your pinup/rockabilly inspired outfit!
You can buy any sort of flower and color you desire to match your outfit. Whether it's a rose, a carnation, a lilly, an orchid or an hibiscus.

You can usally buy your hair-flower's from ebay, etsy, any stores that sell hair accessories, and just about any rockabilly/pinup/alternative store.



Here is myself wearing some of my hair-flowers.
No. 5  A belt

Having a belt to match your outfit, is another essential accessory item to add to your vintage inspired outfit! As having a belt should help with defining your waist and can make an outfit stand out more!
Most belts are available in any style and color. All though cute and wider belts are often quite popular for any rockabilly/pinup/vintage inspired outfit!
Once again you can purchase a belt from ebay, any rockabilly/pinup/alternative stores, and sometimes belts come as part of with certain  dresses.

Here I am wearing some of my belts, with my outfits.
Are there any other accessories items you can think off?

Until next time!
