Polka dots, Stripes and Sun! oh my!
So Spring is "just around the corner". It's hard to believe that when It's 25 degrees outside and I can see snow on the ground, BUT, it is just around the corner! According to fashion it's been out since the end of January, as the coats are now on sale and the pastels and tanks are already on the shelf. This gives us girls hope that we can soon wear our bathing suits and get some much needed Vitamin D. What bathing suit are you going to wear this Spring/Summer? Why not change things up a bit this year and go for a classic vintage look?! Thankfully vintage swimsuits now a days are modernized and more inspired by vintage. As cute as these girls looked in the 50's and 60's, their suits look more like dresses and rompers.
This Red Polka dotted suit from www.ModCloth.com (top) is a great find! It has the characteristics of a 1950's swim suit with the polka dots, bright red color and halter design. Pair it with these 1960's vintage bangle bracelets from etsy http://www.etsy.com/listing/67373368/1960s-vintage-lucite-glowing-red-bangle , a straw sun hat and some cat eye sunglasses (UrbanOutfitters.com) and you're ready to go!!!
The Black, turquoise and white suit by Betsey Johnson (bottom) is an even more modernized look as it's a 2 piece bikini. Personally this is my favorite!! It's sexy yet classy and cute. The bows are probably the accent of the design I like the most! Pair with the Armani Exchange tote to add a modern twist and you're ready to go! The cat eye sunglasses from urban would also be a great touch =)
