Get the look: Pin up style

Gil Elvgren Pin Up paintingThanks to Simply Be and Vintage or Tacky, channelling your inner Betty Grable is a breeze. With waist-cinching details and bust-boosting cuts worn with sultry make up and a retro ‘do, this glam look is the go-to trend for ladies who like a little retro in their wardrobe rotation!

Showcasing the female form in all its glory, pin up-inspired style has held a place in our hearts (and wardrobes) for decades. Typically featuring curvaceous beauties in comprimising positions, these iconic images were both suggestive and naive; a clever and perpetually sexy combination which has appealed since the 19th century. While men drooled over them, us girls lusted after their sense of style. In their figure-hugging tops, soft skirts and revealing a flash of flesh, these outrageously glam ladies oozed sex appeal with just a dose of cheeky charm. Continue reading

Style Crush: Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's

Welcome to our new feature, where we’ll be looking back at our favourite style crushes in TV and Film. To start us off we’ve got the ultimate Hollywood style icon, Audrey Hepburn in one of our favourite old time movies Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Here Audrey Hepburn portrays the beautiful socialite Holly Golightly and struts some wonderful fashion along the way. Here are our favourite style moments from the film.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Audrey without the statement black dress. This iconic look is timeless and looks oh-so chic. Dress yours with tights and chunky jewellery to update the look. This bandage style bodycon dress is so versatile – dress it up or down for any party occasion.

We love her statement coat, perfect for gallivanting around New York City or wherever you happen to be! It’s also perfect for injecting some bright colour into the dull winter days and this bright orange coat is a hot trend, which is selling fast!

Now it wouldn’t be complete without the accessories and make-up of course! And Holly Golightly certainly knows a thing or two about accessorising as these iconic images show…

Get the look with these fab pieces:


Her make up is impeccable and we love her long dark lashes teamed with soft pink lips. This look is so demure yet sexy at the same time. For a special night out we love trying our hand at false lashes and these layered lashes can instantly give you that wow factor. Add a slick of eyeliner to complete the look.


Over the summer we have covered our nails in bold and bright colours and as much as we love it, this style considers a more subtle look. This Butter London nail varnish in Teddy Girl is just the thing for that chic, just manicured look – nude/pinky tone nails are going to be big next Spring Summer so take note now, team with this Dainty Doll lipstick aptly named Material World.
