8 Retro Swimsuits ...


Retro swimsuits are becoming increasingly popular on the beach. While beach weather is still a long way off for those in the northern hemisphere, it still leaves plenty of time to search (and save) for summer beachwear inspiration. For those in the southern hemisphere, a retro swimsuit is perfect for enjoying the last rays of summer in style. Take a look at a few stylish retro inspired swimsuits below.2

1. Topshop Stripe Retro Swimsuit

A high waisted bikini brief is one of the clearest indicators of a retro inspired swimsuit design.

This swimsuit from Topshop comes in a navy and white colourway and features a bold striped pattern.

The stripes are arranged in a way which creates quite an eye-catching chevron pattern.

2. Topshop Red Textured Bikini

The material has a micro scallop texture, which creates quite an interesting finish.

The bikini has a tie detail at the bust, as well as a self-tie halterneck strap.

Complete the retro look by wearing a wide-brimmed floppy hat and cat eye sunglasses.

3. Norma Kamali Ruched Retro Swimsuit

Price: $350.00 at net-a-porter.com

If you’re after one piece retro swimsuits, then take inspiration from this ruched number.

It comes in a colourful jungle green, and has a sweetheart bust and halterneck strap.

The overall design is quite flattering.

The price is a bit steep, however, and if I was spending that much on a swimsuit I’d hardly dare introduce it to chlorine or salt water!

4. Topshop Dalmation Print Bikini

The high waisted bikini brief is all about creating the effect of curvy silhouette, like that of a retro pin-up girl.

Complete the pool-side look with a pair of oversized dark sunglasses.
