Well if this weather in the UK keeps up, we’ll have to turn up the heating, throw a towel on the carpet and sunbathe under the lampshade. Option two is to throw some salt in the bath and pretend we’re floating in the cool water of the sea, away from the heat of the fierce sun. On the off chance that we may see some summer (or perhaps you’re ditching the idea of a staycation and leaving on a jet plane) then you may need some new swimwear.
Now usually, it’s not always easy to find vintage inspired swimwear, but with the fifties being oh so popular right now, it's probably never been easier. If you are going in to salty or chlorinated water then non-vintage really is the way to go. If you fall in love with a 80s swimsuit, it may be able to take that kind of punishment - *maybe* anything older than that and you’re probably heading for heartache and trouble…….
So if you do hit the shops both 'real'ones and online, here's what you can find to retro up your summer.
