Pin-Up Girl Style

John B. Marine | 11:57 AM | | | | |
(UPDATED: June 8, 2015)

Vintage pin-up girls, even in these postmodern times, are still every bit as hot as any modern lady. Some ladies prefer to look like vintage pin-up girls. Have you seen some vintage ads featuring beautiful women? That is the look some real-world ladies are willing to sport. Vintage appeal in a postmodern world is always cool. And for this blog post based on a popular post on "John's Blog Space," this blog post is a look at pin-up girls and even includes some beauty insight on how you can be a pin-up girl. Don't worry. It's okay to be vintage.

This post is named after a popular post in my main blog- John's Blog Space.


JUN 8 2015 - updated conclusion

--- Pin-Up Girls at a Glance ---

Pin-up girls are common if you're familiar with advertisements from the 1940s or the 1960s. These are vintage looks done up beautifully in today's modern culture. The appeal of modern pin-up girls is to showcase vintage style. The "pin-up" namesake relates to pictures of beautiful women most young males would pin onto the walls of their rooms. Mostly in the past, these would be advertisements of hot women or just some simply appealing pictures of vintage women.

One of the first modern ladies I've encountered to rock the pin-up look is a beautiful woman named Heidi Van Horne. She expresses herself beautifully with vintage-type hair and beauty touches and even some vintage-style clothing. Today, I also think about the beautiful Katy Perry as far as pin-up girls are concerned. Katy Perry is very vintage inspired with her outfits. Those MUCH more into the scene think of the likes of Bettie Page, Masiumi Max, and Dita Von Teese in regards to pin-up girls both modern and past.

Pin-up chic is not about going with the latest trends and styles. It is instead about infusing as much vintage appeal as possible, especially in times between the 1940s and 1960s. Many advertisements from then were mostly beautifully-styled artwork. The pin-up girls of today try to bring this vintage appeal to real life. Images of pin-up girls usually pose in provocative and flirty images. However, they are all done in a classy manner. I think the best pin-up girls are the ones who infuse as much vintage appeal and as much personality as possible. The closer to vintage pin-up girl ads one looks, the better.

Pin-up girls are uniquely American and very hot. Trends and styles of today can come and go, but there's nothing like going vintage, and surely nothing like being a hot pin-up girl.

I love the vintage pin-up look. I am a big fan of burlesque, and many of the women rock this style perfectly. Works quite well for curvy girls. :-)
