Trendspotting: Vintage Pin-up
It seems as if 21st century fashions are becoming more and more besotted with looks of the past. 1940’s-50’s pin-up girls, such as Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth influence the styles of contemporary celebrities like Katy Perry and Kate Nash . It’s no surprise to see an abundance of likeminded outfits in Chictopia’s style gallery. Take a look at how these fashionistas worked their own personal style on the vintage pin-up trend.
