It is August and we are right in the middle of summer time. The temps are soaring in so many places. I want to look pretty and put-together but how do you pull that off when temps are over 100 degrees and, you still want to wear your petticoat? You do it with Hell Bunny, that’s how.
For those of you who are not familiar with the Hell Bunny clothing brand, they are a UK company that creates fashion styles from the 40s-50s that is Pinup, Retro, Rockabilly, Punk, vintage with edgy street styles. If you want to stand out then Hell Bunny is a brand you need to get to know!!
I love wearing Hell Bunny skirts in the summer or, anytime the temps soar. The skirts have the most beautiful patterns and colors and are so light and airy. I am wearing the Hell Bunny Cannes Floral White/Red Roses Skirt in these pictures and I love it. I had been searching for a floral patterned skirt that pops for a long time and this skirt was recently restocked so I snapped it up. The roses are stunning on this skirt and really do pop against the pristine white background. The skirt just floats, it is light as air. I am also wearing a full petticoat underneath.
Mixing and matching tops with the Hell Bunny Cannes Floral White/Red Roses Skirt is not a problem and you’ll have so many options. I chose to pair it with my red Doris top from Pinup Girl Clothing fir these pictures but, adding colorful cardigans and blouses with belts, purses and petticoats will give you so many different looks. No doubt, this skirt will be a staple in your summer wardrobe. Also, it would make a perfect holiday skirt too with a red or green cardigan and Christmas brooch…. How gorgeous!
My next skirt is the Hell Bunny 50’s August Cherry Check. This one is without a doubt one of my all time favorite skirts!! Gingham and cherries…. Just screams summer!! This is a full circle skirt made of 100% cotton so it is light as air.
I’ve styled this skirt so many different ways over the past year. Here in these pictures I am wearing it with a long sleeved top but have worn it with red tops, white tops, green tops and even blue tops. I love that you can add a full petticoat underneath. In these pictures I styled it without a petticoat. The skirt nips you in right at the waist, perfect for the Pinup girl and rockabilly look.
Accessorizing this outfit is a lot of fun. I am wearing my true vintage red cherry Bakelite brooch (gift from my hubby) and added vintage cherry shoe clips and vintage millinery cherries to my vintage dark green patent leather purse.
There are so many options to style this skirt with colorful cardigans and tops, adding some fun hair scarves would really give it a rockabilly vibe as well. Wearing a longer petticoat that shows at the bottom would be a sweet touch too. Again, this is such a light and breathable skirt, so perfect for summer time.
