Vintage Apron Week is heating up as pin-ups show how “sassy” and “sexy” is really done. Move over VS Angels!
Nothing screams vintage more than a pin-up girl.
Putting to rest my previously held silly notion that aprons aren’t sexy apparel, pin-ups in aprons are the quintessential image of classy sensuousness.
Although pin-up art had been around as far back as 1890, the term pin-up came into existence in 1941 during World War II. It was the war which brought the surge of pin-ups into mainstream pop culture which flourished through the 1950s.
(Naturally, pin-ups continued since then, but the classic glamorous style of pin-ups shifted after the 1960s.)
The pin-ups’ hair, make-up, expressions, as well as their ever graceful lines and postures are just some of the reasons why their appeal has hardly aged a day in the last 60 to 70 years of the pin-ups’ existence.
These pin-ups are from the 1940s through the 1950s, and all the gals do a smashing job of making aprons the must-have sexy item for the wardrobe!
In addition to inspiring glamorous style, pin-ups are great ways to spice up your walls with an extra chic touch of class and grace.
Which of these pin-ups would you pin-up?
