TREND: Retro Swimsuits

Monday, April 07, 2008

It's time again to start thinking about purchasing your swimsuits for the year. Year after year we strive to find the newest, the hottest, the most flattering suit. By the time we've seen twenty summers or so, it starts to get kind of tiring. So, with teeny bikinis being the norm, and Brazilian waxes now as necessary to summer as a good sunblock, what's left? How's a girl supposed to turn a few heads in the age of baring it all?

To really stand out in a crowd, forego the been-there-doen-that tiny two-piece and opt for the hottest new trend in swimwear: retro chic! When we caught a glimpse of this new trend in an episode of Gossip Girl, we knew it was bound to catch on quick. Suddenly, stores are stocked with classy, sassy retro swimwear that leaves tongues wagging without putting all of the goods on display. Check out a few of our favorite finds:
