Then- By the time the 1950’s came around, swimwear was no longer made from wool but from lined cotton or the new synthetic material called Lastex. This allowed designers to create suits (one piece as well as the new two piece) in all sorts of colors and patterns.
Then- The two piece suit here has a solid colored tank and skirt with unmatched bottoms.
Now- Taking a cue from the fun fifties, designer Orla Kiely has included in her spring/summer collection this delightful floral suit and…
…this two piece. Nice detail with the ruffle! And check out her…
...cute bra and skirt ensemble. Perfect for a day at the beach.
