Rockabilly Theme

Rock it out with a Rockabilly Themed hen

Rockabilly is one of the earliest styles of rock and roll music, dating to the early 1950s.

The term “rockabilly” is a portmanteau of “rock” (from “rock ‘n’ roll”) and “hillbilly”, the latter a reference to the country music (often called “hillbilly music” in the 1940s and 1950s) that contributed strongly to the style’s development. Other important influences on rockabilly include western swing, boogie woogie, and rhythm and blues. While there are notable exceptions, its origins lie primarily in the Southern United States.

  • Full-gathered maxi skirts in floral prints or bright solid colours.
  • High-waisted ankle-length pants, pired with men’s striped dress shirts (roll up the sleeves and tie a knot in the front).
