Rockabilly fall must-haves
If you’re prepared to get serious about your rockabilly fall wardrobe, then here are some of the absolute essentials you’re going to need to create that effortlessly vintage look.
If you’re not going to be rocking cigarette pants during the fall, you’re going to want to wear a great pair of rockabilly leggings. Leggings go with everything; they can be paired with a rock ‘n roll leather jacket, sexy tank tops, nautical inspired vintage tops, swing dresses, and more. Leggings are absolutely essential for pinup girls who are trying to transition their outfits. For example, take a swing dress that was perfectly acceptable for summer weather and transition it by wearing some leggings or vintage tights underneath, and a classy cardigan on top. Don’t put your vintage dresses away just because summer’s over!
