Fashion is known for trends coming and going faster than one can say abracadabra. Then of course, they usually end up cycling back again. 70's garb? Check. Skinny jeans? Check. Stripes? Oversized sunglasses? Check. Check. One of my absolute favorite revivals for this summer is the retro swimsuit.
The retro swimsuit is so chic and so flattering, who wouldn't want to lounge around a pool, sipping a cocktail, while wearing an ever so fabulous swimsuit.
Here are some of my modern day twists on how to sport the retro swimsuit.
|Anthropologie's Natalie One-Piece sweetheart neckline and boy cut legs is the perfect piece to lounge poolside in.|
|I love polka dots and this darling J. Crew Retro Underwire tank in navy hits the spot.|
|This Phillip Lim Halterneck swimsuit gives a peek into sexiness and sophistication.|
|Topshop's Black Scallop Stripe's graphic print is perfect for the summer heat.|
|Add a splash of color in Carmen Marc Valvo Solid Bandeau.|
Pair this demure style with beautiful flat sandals, a great cover up (I love caftans) and you are ready for a stylish afternoon brimming with sun and fun. These suits are particularly perfect for a pool party where you can enjoy yourself without feeling uncomfortable.

What is so fantastic about the retro swimsuit is that it is forgiving in all the right places. It shows off and conceals just enough to be comfortable while looking stylish. After all, who says a one piece can't be sexy?
