Rockabilly Fashion

If you are planning a rockabilly or 1950s themed wedding, you probably already have a good idea of what you want to wear or look like. However, you may be someone who is in the wedding party or invited to one of these weddings and have no clue where to start. Or perhaps you just want more info on the style. This post is for you. Brides, I will be dedicating an entire post to wedding dresses soon.

There really are no hard and fast rules about rockabilly fashion, which can be liberating and frustrating at the same time. Usually the look is based on fashion from the 1950s and moves its way outward. Some people like the nostalgic 50s look with sweaters, pencil skirts and crinolines. Others go for a harder edge and prefer jeans, leather and tattoos. Or maybe you mix the two. The big thing is to accessorize! If you wear glasses, get online and find a pair of vintage cat-eyes or raybans; if the glasses aren't too petite or fragile you can usually have your prescription put into them. Guys, get a chain wallet or letter sweater. Gals, hair flowers are a must- in every color.

The purpose of this post is mainly to point you to the Rockabilly Fashion links section (to the right) where I will be continually updating sites that I feel give you a good example of what is out there. I also started a flickr set for my wedding guests to give them an idea of what they could wear if they wanted to indulge in our theme. If you have some pictures you think should be included in my set, please let me know.
