If you think of Bettie Page, you probably think of sexy underwear and fetish pictures. This outfit post is inspired by dressed Bettie since I think this look is very alluring as well.

A black pencil skirt is the base of my retro outfit: The fitted cut emphasises the shape of your body while the white poka-dots add that certain something to this look. I teamed the retro skirt with a simple white top.

Some accessories like a hair band, patent leather pumps, and a handbag finish the outfit.

Of course this look isn’t perfect without the signature Bettie Page bangs – mine are only a fake. 😉

As you can see in this blog post, the pencil skirts looks also great with a retro cardigan.

  1. You have completely nailed the Bettie Page look! When I scrolled through instagram and saw your photo I had to do a double take, you did a fantastic job recreating her iconic look. I also love that you’ve edited this set of photos in black and white for the complete vintage look! Have you seen the film ‘The Notorious Bettie Page’?

  2. What a gorgeous skirt – I had no idea the pattern would extend all the way up until the shot that showed it. Quirky and really lovely. You have got this look to perfection and I adore the photos in B&W. I cannot wait until we see the post about your shoe collection! Kx

  3. That skirt is a head turning stunner! Wow, wow and wow again! I’ve never seen one quite like it before. What a stellar piece to have your wardrobe. I bet it garners oodles of compliments.

    Big hugs coming your way, sweet dear,
    ♥ Jessica
