Feeling Patriotic? Well then throw on this cute little Rosie The Riveter look!
Originating in the 40s during WW2, Rosie was created to boost morale and encourage women to help out in the war effort. From the lesser known Wendy the Welder to even our dear Rosie, women did all types of jobs and work.
So do your job and get this easy look while still looking peachy keen!
The Hair: This is pretty easy. I chose to do an easy poof. This was done by taking a chunk of my bangs, hair spraying them, then I pushed them forward and bobby pined it so it poofed. Then I sprayed it again. The rest I put in a simple high bun. For the handkerchief I just folded it until it was about 2” thick then simply tied it on. Fasten it with bobby pins so it doesn’t slip!
The Clothes: I found this great light blue linen button down shirt at Forever 21 for less than $20. I rolled the sleeves up and paired it with a pair of hi-rise jeggings from American Eagle. You can wear really any type of jean. I wore hi-rise to give a more high-waisted look. The most important thing is that you pick a dark wash. It offsets the light blue well. Cuff these and add a pair of boots or even an old pair of chucks.
The Make Up: A red lip is essential! It is so cute and makes your lips look stunning! I used a bit of cream blush so I could achieve a subtle but still rosy look. And for the eyes I used casual brown eye shadow and a ton of mascara. I emphasized the top lid of my eyes more and tried not to make the bottom lid to heavy.
The Extra Bits: This look is iconic so you don’t need to much in the way of accessories. I wore a pair of creamy white colored circle earrings. They were simple and didn’t overpower my ears. Rosie does have a few buttons so you can either make one yourself or find them at various shops. I had a Captain America button, which worked well with the time period. (I found this at my local comic book store.)
So get this look, wave a flag, and don’t forget to stay swell!
