Time sprang forward, and temperatures made their seasonal spike across the South recently, reeling in the spring season. People across the country are gearing up to shed the winter coat and show off some skin in the sun for spring break. Whether it be a siesta on the beach or a boogie in your backyard, swimsuits are key to your spring break experience. I’m here today with some vintage-inspired spring break looks to get you ready for some fun in the sun!
Lahco invented luxurious knit swimwear in 1922. Knit swimwear was especially popular in the early 20th century. They carry that tradition today with a blend of polyamide in the same sophisticated fits they’ve created over the past century. Pair the Honolulu swimwear set (it comes with a headband!) with a pair of sunnies, and you’re set for spring and beyond!
Esther Williams, the Million Dollar Mermaid, dazzled the nation with her swimming and acting abilities during the ‘40s and ‘50s. She was also a cunning businesswoman who utilized her brand to spread her glamour to beaches across the world.
Today, you can own a piece of Esther Williams swimwear yourself — this two-piece manages to be sweet and sassy yet modest and classy with its high-waist bottoms and cute lobster print! Pair this with a ultra wide-brim hat to avoid a sunburn— your swimsuit may have shellfish on it, but that’s not a reason to be crabby!
Marilyn Monroe—the original beauty queen. When we’re talking sexy, we often look to standards Marilyn set before us. That being said, from the words of Monroe herself, “you can read about yourself, but what’s most important is how you feel about yourself”. Pay homage to the original bombshell with the Esther Williams Marilyn swim dress. With a silhouette that calls to one of Marilyn’s most famous moments, you’ll feel sexy yet covered anytime you slip on this little skirted number. Pair it with a nice cat-eye pair of sunnies for a classic look!
Speaking of classic looks, let’s talk about all black everything. It may be spring, but let’s be honest – black is and will always be the most flattering and classic go-to color. As someone who identifies as more Morticia than Marilyn, I’m thankful we have a few all black options in stock!
