Katy Perry’s unique style is not easy to forget. The pop star is all about fun styles with a retro appeal. Not only do her outfits make you think of an era from long ago, she also mixes retro with modern to create her cool hairstyles. Despite what you may believe, Katy Perry style is easy and inexpensive to imitate.
Pinup Girl Style
Many of her fun and flirty looks are reminiscent of a 1940′s or 1950′s pinup girl. She prefers high-waisted dresses with heart shaped necklines that show off her enviable curves. The dresses consistently feature eye popping colors such as bright red and lime green. Shop the large amount of vintage looks offered through ModCloth.
Break out your Converse sneakers and hair spray if you want to emulate Katy’s ’80s style outfits. Neon dresses and t-shirts are a staple in the singer’s wardrobe. Rainbow-colored clothing with plenty of sequins are another thing you can expect from the superstar on and off the red carpet. Aviator sunglasses and fingerless gloves are other style pieces she uses to create her ’80s inspired looks (check out the fun retro styles at ASOS).
All About the Accessories
Everything about your look can be inspired by Kate Perry’s retro style. For your hair, use a wide barrel curling iron to get the big waves commonly seen in the pop star’s hair. To modernize the look, color your hair in a funky shade such as pink, purple or blue. Beauty products like liquid liner and red lipstick for Katy’s look can be found at Sephora. Another way to go retro is with accessories like the cat eye glasses recently worn by Katy as she gallivanted around town.
