Summer is not complete without fabulous and sexy swimwear. While everyone is running to snag the skimpiest bikini, why not opt for something a little more covered and so very retro? The 1950s were known for many things such as drive-ins, the Red Scare, and poodle skirts, but retro swimwear is one of the cutest things to come out of that era. High-waisted everything and sweetheart necks were the thing and they are making a come back!
Retailers such as ASOS, Urban Outfitters, and Nastygal all carry high-waisted bloomer bottoms and frilly bikini tops. As Mieux & Mieux Editor Liza mentioned, high-waisted bottoms are everywhere this season! This summer, it’s not just about the skimpy bikini, but the one-piece and monokini are also making appearances. The best part? The retro swimsuit will hide all those not-so-flattering areas and highlight the better ones. If you wanted to really make a statement this summer and step away form the usual ‘kini and try out a retro get up!
