It was 65 years ago today that French designer Louis Reard unveiled the two-piece swimsuit dubbed, the "bikini". So let's take a post to celebrate not only this distinct piece of apparel, but other swimwear styles as well.
1. Florals and ruffles, how adorable! With a tied bandeau top and short V-shorts with a slight ruffle, I think this style is my favourite.
2. This simple bandeau is one thing, but for this bikini in particular, lace is what makes it. Not to mention that it has gold trim in the centre. I think this is one of those "I'm just gonna sit by the pool and look good" bikinis that aren't so much meant for water.
3. The halter bikini has a great retro feel to it, though the tan line associated with it may cause some problems.
4. And of course, the classic V-top- arguably the most common today. It's probably my least favourite of the four, yet the only kind I own. I guess that means a summer upgrade is in order? (aka. shopping trip!)
Speaking of unique swimsuits and tan lines...what do you think of this one?
H&M style off. Personally, I'm a no, but the style has me intrigued. Would you wear a swimsuit like this?
Alright, go celebrate the bikini's birthday- off to the beach, everyone!
