Plus size rockabilly clothing has emerged as a loved and highly sought after style in recent times. Rockabilly clothing is all about style derived from Rock and Roll icons of the 1950’s with a splash of modern country, reflecting a mix of 1950s fashion, music, and tattoos.

Most of us prefer to stick to a certain kind of fashion rules, whether you follow high fashion or some alternative fashion. So if you’re willing to follow a few of the ‘Rockabilly Girl’ rules, we’ve summed up all the tricks you need to know to accomplish this look.



To pull off the ultimate plus size rockabilly clothing look, opt for classic halter tops or dresses that tie at the neck or feature thick straps with a sweetheart neckline or ruching at the bust. Avoid tanks or spaghetti-strap styles. Go for bright eye-popping colours such as red, or the classic black, white or navy blue. Some motifs you should embrace include cherries, skulls, swallows, anchors, dice, horse shoes and bows.

Pair this standout number with red closed toe heeled pumps, a bright yellow bow headband, and a sweep of your brightest red lipstick for an ultra sassy look. Tattooed skin is an added bonus!



Rock your plus size rockabilly clothing with a high waist! High waisted pencil skirts are a quintessential component of your rockabilly wardrobe. They have an unbeatable retro, rockabilly feel, especially when paired with a menswear-style dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up and a knot tied in front. Push back your tresses with the aid of headgear such as a hairband, a flower clip or by simply draping a hip fashionable scarf as a turban on your forehead. Put on your bright red lipstick and stiletto heels to instantly upgrade your look!



Swap the pencil skirt for a pair of high waisted ankle-length pants for a more casual everyday wear plus size rockabilly clothing look. The style defines saucy and seductive, with the added advantage of comfort.

Pair the pants with a dress shirt or tank top, stilettos, bright lips and funky glasses; wear your hair in loose curls with a headband. You’ll find yourself wearing this from the week to the weekend by switching up a few accessories.


Plus size rockabilly clothing is all about the swing! Add versatility to your rockabilly wardrobe by purchasing a skirt which offers some ‘swing’. Choose a full skirt with a fitted and belted waist, pair it with a top featuring a light puffed sleeve that falls to about the elbow. Finish up your look with your highest pair of platform heels, bright make up, and a snazzy scarf. Flaunt those tattoos and gain the attention of every rockabilly guy!
