Vintage Beach Vibes: 5 Must-Have Retro-Inspired Swimwears

Spread the love

Summer started in our part of the world a little over a month ago. A lot of my (Facebook) friends have already gone to the beach. I haven’t seen a huge body of water since the year started but I’m hoping to finally dip my toes into some sand and swim to my heart’s content before the wet, cold weather arrives again.

When I’m at the beach, I don’t really care much about anything else but the water and, well, food. I’ve never been the type to put much thought on swimwear or resort ensembles. Mostly it’s because I don’t want to think of anything else but swimming and enjoying time with my loved ones, but sometimes the act of not caring about what to wear stems from many body issues, which I would save for another post.

 If I ever wake up one day feeling like I need to dress up for the beach (and feel comfortable about it), I would definitely don one of these 5 vintage-inspired swimwears.

My favorite part about this swimsuit is the scallops. I think they give a dainty little touch to the garment.

This one is more of a modern take on the classic look. The bold prints definitely make this piece (or two-piece) stand out.
This, for me, is like the swimsuit version of a printed maxi dress. It’s simple in theory, but the prints make it not so typical.
I love polkadots/dot prints! That’s really the only reason why I chose this piece. 
This one’s the most daring out of the five, if you ask me. But the classic look is not lost on it. It’s very reminiscent of ’50s sailor-inspired swimwear pieces. 
Have you gone to the beach yet? Which of these vintage-inspired swimwears would you choose?
