The pin-up look- how they're wearing it

It looks like trend for the pin up look is set to run for a while yet. I really like the way it's been interpreted by the three ladies below (click on image to enlarge).

Look 1: This is pretty much the classic look- full skirted, 50s dress, hair tied up into a bun and side-swept bangs. The pink wedge platforms add a touch of modernity. Image: Face Hunter

Look 2: Ooh, I really like this one. The playsuit the way I would wear it, mauve textured knee socks with peeptoe, wedge sandals and a cute vintage clutch. What makes this look work for me is the way she wears that scarf. Image: Face Hunter

Look 3: Red, white and blue. Pin-up goes Americana for extra style points. The tomboy clothes are subverted by the girlie clutch, make up and slash of red lipstick. Not too sure about those shoes though. A pair of mid-heeled Mary Janes or brogues might've worked better. Image: Style Scout
