One of my favorite things about working in the lingerie store is that part of my job is essentially playing dress up with customers in order to help them find the perfect outfit for their aesthetic. A request we often get is to help them create their ideal pin-up or vintage inspired look, which I can’t help but favor a little. I thought I would share some of my favorite pin-up/vintage inspired looks we have in the stores at the moment.
Channel your inner Sherry Britton in the Chantal Thomass Badinage Hi-Waisted Brief and Demi Bra. The hi-waisted briefs are extremely flattering and are perfect to wear underneath flowy dresses or skirts on those days when that pesky wind may cause your dress to pull a Marilyn in The Seven Year Itch.
Every time I see the Dottie’s Delight Frou Frou Dressing Robe I can’t help but think of the amazing Bettie Page in this beautiful red robe. This robe is the quintessential 50’s pinup garment and the ruffle hem makes it so much fun.
Very little feels better than coming home and putting on the NK iMode Kimora Long Robe after a long day. It instantly makes you feel like a glamorous Hollywood starlet from the golden age of film.
It comes as no surprise that a company that has been around as long as Gossard makes one of my favorite pieces, the Retrolution Corset. For a look inspired by the gorgeous Silvana Pampanini pair it with a pair of backseam stockings and the Jacques Levine Kraze slippers.
