One of the best things about fashion is when we take something old and make it notoriously new again! So with summer upon us, it’s only natural for retro-inspired suits to be splashing back into style this season. Mimicking the sexy summer style of old school beach bombshells like Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot and Grace Kelly, this summer swaps boring ol’ triangle bikinis in favor of haute high-waisted numbers, pretty polka-dotted patterns and a dash of some serious sex appeal. Channel your inner ’50s and ’60s style siren and be sure to snatch up these retro-tastic suits to wear to your next beach bash this summer!
Two words: Marilyn Monroe. This is one screen siren that needs no introduction, so it’s not shock to us that there are a slew of stunning suits that simulate the style of this lasting sex symbol and fashion icon. Striking a trademark sultry pose, Marilyn struts a white and black polka dotted, high waisted two piece that leaves us craving one just like it. Luck for us, ModCloth designed this bombshell Beach Blanket Bingo Two Piece in Black bikini ($89.99 on modcloth.com) that will have you looking like the popular pin-up poster=girl that Marilyn loved to chicly channel. So slip on this stunner for the next poolside or waterfront event you’re attending, and turn heads wherever you walk!
