Have you ever heard of the Rockabilly style and wondered what someone is talking about? We’ve got you covered. Let’s take a look at what it means to be Rockabilly, and what it has to do with our corsets.
Rockabilly is known for being some of the earliest rock and roll music to hit the United States. It originated in the southern areas, and is a combination of country music and rhythm and blues. The term “rockabilly” comes from a combination of the rock genre with the hillbilly culture. The 1950s were when rockabilly style was the trend, and it has continued to be a part of fashion culture for years to come.
There was a select group of artists who were part of the rockabilly movement in the 1950’s. It kind of died out in the 1960’s and then made a small comeback in the 1970s and 1980s. The artists that are most known for being part of the original rockabilly movement include:
● Buddy Holly
● Elvis Presley
● Johnny Cash
● Carl Perkins
● Bob Luman
● Bill Haley
● Jerry Lee Lewis
Rockabilly StyleWhen you think rockabilly, think greasers and poodle skirts. Tight-fitting tops mixed with full skirts that twirl were all the rage. Rockabilly clothing is designed for dancing, and is meant to have fun. When dressing rockabilly style, it is best to avoid the poodle skirt, unless you are looking to give off more of a costume feel. Skirts in the poodle skirt style are more authentic and will fit in better. The Abbie Rockabilly Corset Dress is a great option that fits right in the rockabilly style. It is an all-in-one outfit that is great for everyday wear, or for special occasions. Or you can pair a skirt with one of our other corsets and a halter top for an original look that is all your own.
