Rock the perfect beach look with a 50s twist

So, the festive season is drawing to a close. We hope you had a fabulous Christmas, and if you’re not feeling too bloated after all that indulgence a trip to the beach might be on the cards. Well, why not make sure you look the part? A bikini will of course be an essential part of your summer wardrobe but it might be time to give yours an upgrade, and this season it’s all about the retro look for a feminine, 50s-inspired twist.

This season’s swimwear has been designed to celebrate the female form, enhancing and even creating curves for a feminine silhouette that’s as head-turning as it is flattering. 50s-style shapes are leading the way with these vintage styles being perfect for all shapes and sizes—balconette bras, colour panelling, strategically-placed stripes, high-waisted briefs and halternecks are all key trends that can flatter the figure and help hide some of the areas we’re not so keen on.

Young and old alike are a fan of this trend. The younger generation love the vintage look as they didn’t live through the era themselves, whilst for older women it’s a chance to step back in time with styles that are pretty, feminine yet totally on-trend. These retro swimsuits offer more coverage than a lot of other bikinis which is a welcome feature for a lot of women, with designers realising that they need to expand their customer base to include all body types and indeed all ages.

Investing in a few key pieces of vintage swimwear could be just the thing to ensure you rock the beach look this season, giving your style a 50s twist for a flattering and head-turning look. You could even finish the whole thing off with a simple jacket or cover-up, providing additional coverage when you need it and ensuring you’re prepared for when the sun goes in. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to hit the beach!
