As the time for warm-weather vacations draws close, we have to start looking at swimwear. Even though the thought of squeezing into a suit might make you want to cry (or start a diet…or go for a run…or get spray-tanned), the new trends in beachgear can get you excited about baring all! Going along with the vintage craze in clothes, retro-inspired suits have become popular with many swim lines. Victoria’s Secret, Brette Sandler, and Loeffler Randall have all incorporated a Vargas pin-up aesthetic into their new releases. The new pieces look like they belong in a ’50s beach-blanket flick– They are more conservative, and they have feminine design features like ruffles, rouching, and belting. The colors are moving away from the typical beach palette and include more classic hues and patterns, like polka dots and animal prints. Check out some of these throw-back looks, and enjoy visions of old school glamor on your next beach vacay.
