OOTD: THE MODERN PINUP

     I've said before and I'll say it again, you can achieve the pinup or vintage look without actually having to shop vintage or break the bank looking for retro reproduction pieces. Its quite easy to pull a vintage inspired look together with completely modern pieces and no one will ever know that it's not vintage. Sticking to classic pieces like pencil skirts, high waist pants, pedal pushers, cardigans, crop tops, turtlenecks and classic prints like polka dots, strips, plaids, and  geometric prints, can carry over from any decade giving you a timeless and not specifically period look.
