  • Get The Look: Marilyn Monroe

    Marilyn Monroe

    If there ever was a grand supreme icon here at Unique Vintage, it would be none other than the incomparable Marilyn Monroe. Often regarded as the epitome of a vintage body type, Ms. Monroe and her now famous mystique are, and forever will be, an inspiration to pin up girls worldwide. Now, let's take a peek at a few Marilyn-esque pieces every gal needs!

    Being known for a killer hourglass shape, a pair of high waisted jeans that accentuate the high, natural waist is a versatile and classic piece. New from Kustomville Design, these high waist stunners are a dark wash denim, complete with gold button detailing and top-stitching. In proper Marilyn fashion, pair it with a cheeky gingham top that ties, or a basic white cotton blouse.

    Marilyn was known for we famous wiggle. Achieve the same shimmy and shake with a fabulous 50's style pencil skirt. New from Steady Clothing, the Nikki Pencil Skirt is an all-stretch skirt, complete in a slimming black.  The allure of Marilyn was due to the fact that she moved like no one else, and the tighter the skirt, the more fabulous the wiggle became.

    The little black dress is a staple of vintage and retro clothing, and remains a fabulous piece for any gal's closet to this day! Ms. Monroe was well aware of its importance, as evidenced by the above photograph. If anything, the slimming quality of a perfect LBD is the best kept secret to a truly happy pin up. Our new Lydia Wiggle Dress is a pristine tank style wiggle, complete in an all stretch Bengaline. With slight pleating for fit in the bust, and a tight pencil style skirt, the classic LBD has arrived for all of our modern day Marilyns.

    And lastly, a night of glamour calls for a little something special. Marilyn, like many of the classic stars of Hollywood's days of yore, knew that getting noticed in a crowded room only took the right hairstylist and one stunner of a cocktail dress. The new Champagne Radiant Dress from Stop Staring is a perfect blend of modern day sex appeal and classic Monroe allure. A tight wiggle fit is complimented by a lightweight stretch fabric- perfect for one and all.

    Here at UV, Marilyn will always shine just a little brighter than some of the other stars in the classic Hollywood sky. Her stunning style could never be replicated, but will forever be a point of inspiration for aspiring style starlets like us.
