Modern pin up girls have given new definition to the term bringing sexy back! Pin up girls have been around for quite some time and were most popular in the 1950s, but recently pin ups have regained popularity and even become a popular American subculture. The pin up look is still turning heads in 2013 just as it did in 1952! Today’s modern pin up has become its own subculture and has inspired clothing lines, pin up pageants, and even specialty magazines. Many celebrities and even us here at Leg Avenue have been inspired by the classic style, maybe you should give it a try too!
The term pin up basically comes from the idea that these curvy, sexy, and beautiful women were to be “pinned up.” In the 1950’s they were commonly pinned up in lockers, garages, and bedrooms of soldiers who were away at war. Pinups also gained popularity and were featured on advertisements for all kinds of products from shampoo to toothpaste. These women were the fantasies of every man in America.
Even though pin up has made a come back, she has definitely been modernized. Today’s pin up girl doesn’t really fit into a mold. She’s a free spirit and downright badass! She rides motorcycles, wears heavy makeup, has tattoos, and can even be a sexy burlesque dancer like Dita Von Teese. She pretty much makes her own rules. So next time you want to feel like a sophisticated sex feminist, try out a pin up girl look and you’ll be sure to command all the attention you crave.
