I have to admit: my love for swimwear exists with a bias toward designs with vintage vibes and retro inspired cuts.
So with summer approaching, here’s my edit on the chicest retro inspired swimwear perfect for hitting the beach or catching waves this season.
Solid Flounce One Piece by Tory Burch
A cute one piece with underwire cups, this retro-inspired Tory Burch swimsuit comes with flexible boning that provides support and shape, all resembling a corset doesn’t it? Perfect dose of ruffled trims on a mild skirt for that girly touch. A piece I’d love to wear for lazing.
Poppy bikini by Lisa Marie Fernandez
This darling hits the mark with a perfectly knotted bow boned bikini top, and a classic high waisted bottom with button accents. Not to mention its vintage style print in seersucker fabric. Absolutely adorable.
Rose Crochet Bikini by She Made Me
Established in 2012, the She Made Me brand creates irresistibly retro, handmade crochet swimsuits in 70s cuts with Lycra lining for shape. They have a wild variety of crochet swimwear, but this Rose Crochet top and bottom is my favourite mix-and-match! A bohemian bikini set with just enough coverage for days where you don’t feel like showing too much skin.
The Venice Maillot by Marysia
Definitely not your average maillot, this piece by Marysia is an absolute beauty. Together with its almost Grecian goddess-like asymmetrical front cutout, this swimsuit places emphasis on exactly the right parts for that classically elegant look unlike any swimsuit I’ve seen around.
Tie Up Plunge One Piece by Skye & Staghorn
Excuse the Kardashian-like model here, but this uniquely cut marigold coloured piece exudes vintage grace in all sense. A simple plunge design with waist tie detail and scallop trims, you can simply picture this sunshine swimsuit with a basket bag in hand for a beautiful glow under the sun.
Bathing Beauty One Piece Swimsuit in Cherry Pie by Esther Williams
Last but not least, the iconic 50s style swimsuit, in full-on red gingham print. Priceless. Need I say more about this bold stunner, particularly when it is by Esther Williams?
Also available on Amazon in a variety of other prints and patterns.
