Gothic Fashion: What Exactly Is It?

0 comments Leave a comment

Gothic Fashion Gothic Dresses


Born in the '80s, the Goth movement is a relatively young but powerful sub-culture! Rooted in the attitude of "breaking the mold", Gothic culture stands for challenging societal norms and throwing out all ideas of organization, order, and expectation.

Although there are many amazing elements of the Gothic sub-culture that feed off of each other, here at Atomic Jane we're especially fond of all that is Gothic fashion! Gothic fashion has a beautiful mystery to it, the haunting, verging on morbid, dark tones and the inspiring mix of Victorian and Punk stylistic influences.

Because we're so entranced by this fashion genre, we want to give you a little more context as to how this subculture came to be and showcase some to-die-for items from our inventory that are undoubtedly Gothic fashion staples!



As most sub-cultures begin, Goth culture can really be traced to the music scene and the introduction of Goth Rock during the Post-Punk era in England. Goth Rock was dark and disturbing, yet somehow ethereal, and really played on people's desire for individuality and revolution. As this genre started to gain traction, it moved further and further away from the Post-Punk scene and enjoyed its own devoted following, allowing the movement to catch fire not only in England but all over the world!

It didn't take long for Goth culture to expand beyond music and into all of the other facets of sub-culture, and quickly became a movement including art, films, and fashion. The underlying tones of the Gothic subculture are its dark aesthetic, mixed with influences from the 1800's, and never lacking in mystery and complexity.

These tones can be seen clearly in all of the elements that make Gothic fashion what it is! The Gothic aesthetic revolves around dark clothing, hair, and makeup, starkly contrasted by the paleness of skin, and materials and fashion staples reminiscent of the Victorian age.

At Atomic Jane, we have so many beautiful pieces that pay tribute to Gothic fashion and they are incredible staples to have when building a Goth-influenced collection!

Your Quick Guide To 1950's Fashion!

0 comments Leave a comment

1950's Fashion 1950's Dress

If you love 1950's fashion as much as we do, you're familiar with that warm, happy feeling you get whenever you think of the bright patterns, feminine silhouettes, and scenes of drive-in movies and diners of that special decade.

We're so incredibly in love with 1950's fashion here at Atomic Jane, made clear through our extensive selection of beautiful 1950's dresses and skirts!

Because we hold these pieces so dear, we want to feature them in a special way for all of you vixens to see just how much fun you can have with 1950's fashion.

Throughout this week's post, we'll go through a brief overview of what makes 1950's fashion so special and give you a peek at how an Atomic Babe would style a few of our favorite pieces!

Let's not waste any more time and get right to it!


1950's Fashion 1950's Dress


A notable characteristic about this decade of fashion is its roots in conformity. In this post-war time of economic boom and deep focus on "Keeping Up With The Jones's", there was not much stray from the shape of the clothing for women during this time period and the hourglass figure completely ruled fashion.

Where women were really able to express themselves was within the bright, beautiful colors and patterns of their clothing, as well as the bold accessories and makeup of the time.

This being said, we can easily break down 1950's fashion into three steps:

  1. The Dress/The Skirt
  2. The Accessories
  3. The Makeup

Although we'll highlight multiple different styles of dresses and skirts that were so signature to 1950's fashion, these pieces have one very important thing in common: they are smart, clean, and accentuated the hourglass figure in the most incredibly flattering way.

The accessories popular to the time followed suit in their crisp appearance, and more often than not, perfectly matched the main color, namely the dress or the skirt. Women were ultra-feminine and ultra-put together, never failing to complete the outfit to the highest degree!

When it came to makeup, the lips were the star of the 1950's! Lipstick, lipstick, lipstick was the name of the game. Although red lips were center stage, Audrey Hepburn's declared love of pink played a part in popularizing shades of pink and peach throughout these years. Who knew?



Now that you have a solid foundation of the basic components of 1950's fashion, it's time to run through a few of our absolute favorite 1950's inspired dresses and skirts at Atomic Jane!

We have a plethora, and I really mean a plethora, of beautiful dresses and skirts to choose from, perfect for any and all occasions.

Because these pieces are so versatile, it can be a task to figure out just when and where to wear them (and how!).

Have no fear ladies, we took it upon ourselves to choose some of our favorite pieces and accessorize them specific to each occasion.

There's a lot of room for creativity and interpretation here, so take this as a dash of inspiration to make any of these beautiful 1950's pieces your own. Click on any of the sets below to go to their individual purchase pages on our website!

Let's go!


The Pleated Skirt


Say hello to our Atomic Red Rose Rockabilly Skirt! The pleated skirt was one of the most popular styles of the decade, and this beautiful rose pattern makes it more feminine than we can put into words.

Perfect for a date night at the diner, we've paired this beauty with a simple black collared top, beautiful little bow kitten heels, and a matching black clutch. All you need is your bright red rose lipstick and you're ready for a night you'll never forget!

Make this 1950's inspired skirt the newest member of your closet for $45 in sizes S-2XL!


The Cocktail Dress


This is our too-sweet-for-words Atomic 1950's Sunflower Sleeveless Cocktail Dress With Belt! How perfect is this for those hot summer days (or nights)? We've paired this sunny 1950's dress with a matching yellow clutch and strappy kitten heel, finishing the look with that bright red lipstick so popular throughout the decade.

Find this beauty on our website for only $55, in sizes S-2XL!


The Poodle Skirt


How sweet is this look? One of the most classic fashion pieces of the 1950's, the poodle skirt is beyond adorable. Feast your eyes on our Atomic Black Rockabilly Skirt with Pink Poodle!

We've paired it here with this beautiful cream top and kitten heel, adding a fun, fluffy accessory to take that sweetness to the next level. Top the look off with this stunning bright pink lip and you'll be ready to dance the night away!

This gorgeous skirt is $55 and comes in sizes S-2XL!


The Casual Swing Dress


Lastly, we're featuring our Atomic Vintage Polka Dot Bow Casual Swing Dress With Belt. This style was wildly popular for more casual occasions throughout the decade, and we've taken wonderful inspiration here from one of our favorite 1950's fashion movies, Grease!

For a more turned down, but still incredibly clean and classic look, we've styled this 1950's dress with beautiful two-toned oxfords, a lovely peach neck scarf, and (again) a classic red lip! We just can't get enough of this look and the ladies of the day couldn't either.

Make this stunning piece yours for only $59, in sizes S-4XL!


Our time has come to a close, ladies!

Now that you've got the basics and you know the three steps of building a 1950's inspired outfit, it's time to make these your own! You have sooooo many options! And that's a good thing:)

We have many more dresses and skirts where these came from, so be sure to head over to our website,, to continue exploring your options.

Burlesque Fashion Burlesque Corset


Having retaken center stage in recent years, Burlesque is back, and one of the hottest it's ever been! This can be attributed to a myriad of reasons, (a star performance by Lady Christina above being arguably one of them), but its association with female empowerment and body positivity are huge factors in the resurgence of this beautifully seductive art form!

Although Burlesque has always been at the forefront of our hearts and minds here at Atomic Jane, its incredible comeback has welcomed a huge new crowd of enthusiasts to the movement.

To the curious and Burlesque-hungry newbies: Atomic Jane is here for you and we're incredibly excited to inspire you to dig deeper into your exploration of Burlesque fashion (just keep reading!)

Burlesque fashion is in a league entirely of its own and its most special elements can be applied and incorporated into various aspects of our lives, whether it be pulling together that perfect outfit for a costume party, spicing up your life in the bedroom, or adding a super-sexy element to day or nighttime wear!

Let's go, Vixens!


Some Cool Burlesque History Tidbits That You Should Know...

 Burlesque Fashion Burlesque Corset

Victorian Age Burlesque

Though most often associated with the strip tease, Burlesque actually began in the Victorian age in London as a performance art form based solely around parody and humor.

Just like the parodies we know and love today (think SNL), Burlesque took the most popular themes in culture and poked fun at them while making them flashier, louder, and unbelievably entertaining.

This concept was wildly cutting-edge at the time and didn’t take long to catch fire across the pond in none other than NYC in the mid-1800s! Burlesque pushed boundaries, dropped jaws, and shook societal norms by questioning the traditional role of women and empowering them to be the strong, independent, and sensual beings that they are! (Amazing, right?)

It wasn’t until the 20th Century that Burlesque really transformed into the comedy/performance art/strip tease form that it is today, allowing the audience to tap into fantasy and to escape into the mesmerizing world of Burlesque during every stunning performance.

Burlesque has had a huge place in culture throughout every decade of the 20th Century with a notable resurgence in the 1990s, often referred to as the "Neo-Burlesque" that continues to shake us today!

Before you take the plunge and add Burlesque fashion to your life in a big way, we have outlined a few of the major elements of Burlesque fashion that we think you should know, understand, and adore!
1. The Burlesque Corset
The absolute biggest staple in Burlesque fashion is the Burlesque Corset. As Burlesque first took center stage in the Victorian Age, it only makes sense that the corset, the biggest fashion element at that time, would have a huge part in shaping the aesthetic of the art form.


Say hello to one of our favorite Burlesque corsets, the Atomic Black Satin Burlesque Overbust Corset! All of the sexiest elements of Burlesque fashion are represented here and it is just oozing with femininity.

From the sweetheart top to the sexy black satin bodice and the bow embellishments, this piece is an absolute dream. Take this home as a perfect starter corset to your Burlesque corset collection for only $49 and in sizes S-2XL!


2. The Burlesque Set

The next Burlesque fashion element that's an absolute must to any Burlesque-obsessed vixen is the Burlesque Set!

This combines the magic of the corset with an equally as stunning corresponding piece and can come in many different shapes and sizes, leaving so much room for your personality and preferences to shine through.

We've highlighted a couple of our favorite styles here for you to drool over and be inspired by!


Let's start out with our Atomic Black Burlesque Inspired Corset and Skirt Set! This is an ode to the Victorian era and the tiered Hi-Lo design of the skirt is so incredibly flirty and tantalizing.

The black lace detail is carried throughout the skirt as well as the bodice and its lace-up front and loose, strappy shoulders are totally irresistible.

Does this style tickle your fancy? Click on the photo above to find this piece for $89, in sizes S-2XL, on our website!


Next up is one of our favorite style of sets, our Atomic Two Piece Leopard Lover Burlesque Corset With Tutu! This adorable, strapless, leopard corset has a soft, sweetheart bust line, three small bows in front for added detail, and a delicate, triple layered, ruffle lace trim over the bust. 

We absolutely love the flirty playfulness of the tutu and think that it's one of the most undeniably Burlesque styles that you can choose.

Pair with a sexy pair of heels and watch as you instantly channel your inner-most tease!

Although similar to the sassy leopard set, our Atomic Purple Burlesque Overbust Corset with Pettiskirt is too dang beautiful to not share! Drool over its soft layers of black ruffle tulle trim and its beautiful black satin accent bows in front.

This is one of our favorite colors of Burlesque fashion: deep, rich purple. Can you get any sexier than this?

Rockabilly Fashion Rockabilly Dress


As proven throughout history, fashion and music go incredibly hand-in-hand, and the formation of the Rockabilly fashion genre is no exception! Heavily influenced by the Rock and Country music of the 1950s, Rockabilly fashion took on a life of its own as it pulled some of the most recognizable fashion elements from both music genres and combined them to form something exciting and revolutionary.

Although the roots of Rockabilly fashion are planted firmly in the 1950s and 1960s, the influence it has had on music, movies, and fashion alike can be seen in every single decade since then, still deeply woven into culture today.

We carry this one on our website in sizes S-4XL and can be the newest edition to your Rockabilly closet for only $59 as well! What are you waiting for?
