Hot New Season Fashion

Just over a week ago we saw International Fashion Week showcasing collections for Spring Summer 2013, with shows in New York, Paris, Milan and London- fashion fanatics everywhere were glued to their seats to see the hotly awaited collections from some of the big name fashion houses! Keywords for the week seemed to be 'original', 'experimental', 'classic' and 'retro'!

We also love how the current fashion trends have such strong links to all styles retro and pin up! There have been pretty fitted floral dresses, halter necklines and tailored suits. It's all very chic and you can have some real fun with your own retro rockabilly style through freshening up that dress with some on-trend accessorizing! The choice is yours when it comes to your image but here's how to get ahead in the style stakes and be top of your game with your vintage look!

Tailored to fit: Rockabilly Pin Up has been rocking the tailored trend since forever, its only now that the rest of the fashion world has finally caught on! According to the catwalks next year we will be seeing a re emergence of the high-waisted trouser and tailored skirt! This was very obvious in the collections of Christian Dior and Lanvin who have a very classy retro look for next season. Even the Balmain and Gucci shows included some very bright 1960's retro trouser and skirt suits on the catwalks. Why not take this idea of figure enhancing a step further and try on Rockabilly Pin Up's Lady Face Black Ribbon Wiggle Skirt? A great way to have the tailored look with some very sensual silky tie up aspects!

Floral Dresses: The floral dress is a staple item for all wardrobes during the summer months, but next year we will be seeing some pretty smaller prints rather than the large garish flowers apparent in seasons past. The prints will be small and dainty- Think real Parisian chic! A perfect example on the Rockabilly Pin Up website is Limb's Pink Floral Summer Dress, the halterneck detail and cute fitted bodice is strongly reminiscent of the outfits from the Mary Katrantzou and the Zac Posen collections shown at Fashion Week. One thing is for sure when it comes to next years trends and that is that Retro Frocks at Rockabilly Pin Up are going to be just as hot as the summer!

Retro Patterns: We will also be seeing some very retro patterns. The Balmain catwalk show highlighted on Houndstooth patterns, a trend that we would normally associate with classic English Heritage brands like Mulberry and perhaps Barbour. Once again Vintage seems to be at the forefront of design. Why not add a some elements of these retro prints to your personal style? Rockabilly Pin Up have some very on trend accessories on the website. The Cherry Houndstooth Tote bag by Sourpuss is a shining example of this! A great combination of the classic and  bold monochrome pattern with the Rockabilly cherry motif!
