Hungover and unable to move from my sofa (except for trips to the fridge and lots of cups of tea). I decided to put old-fashioned type tear-jerker ‘The Notebook’ on. How did I end up with my mac on my knees, researching swimwear for my blog?
Set in the 1940′s and along with that all the alluring, flirty and romantic clothing from this period. I fell in love with the character Ali (Mc Adam’s) all over again.
And Ali looks devine in this flirty Red Gingham check 2 piece swimsuit. (Swimsuits were ‘invented’ in 1946.)
Looking red hot in very short shorts.
A fashion that will never fade; high waisted shorts and top, it reminded me of a feature i had seen on Frieda Pinto only earlier this month in one of the supplements to the Sunday Times magazines.
Pinto looks red hot, playful yet fun.
And the lady herself Marylin Monroe; starting this trend that is still revived today; real bodies were celebrated in the 40′s accentuating womanly curves.
Waists were emphasized – like with this detailing to flatter the female form.
That polka dot iconic 2 piece; frilly, feminine and flattering.
Kelly Brook who often emulates the 40/50′s style ‘pin-up’, has based her new range available from New Look (from April 3rd) on Marylin Monroe.
Brook like Monroe previous, plays on her womanly body.
There is also a great selection of 40′s style suits on Asos, so release your inner pin-up with these, a collection of bold, vibrant, playful prints perfect for the summer.
What do you think to this trend?
