Summertime Seventies Style
What’s old totally has a way of becoming new again, especially swimsuits. For being such a tiny piece of clothing, the garment is uber important, especially right now during the summer months. One trend we’re loving that’s super cute and flattering on almost every body type is a classic one piece.
Who’s the “go to” for this style? Designer Norma Kamali, who designed her first swimwear collection in 1974. She was inspired by 1960′s Parisian style and her love for swimming. The iconic “Bill” bathing suit she created can be found practically everywhere (a la Miranda from Sex & The City, Jessica Alba in GQ). The Bill swimsuit is considered to have “classic American movie star style” with a sweetheart halter neckline, feminine skirted silhouette and flattering ruching and seams. We like the look so much, that we wanted to show you a how this vintage classic has transformed into a modern staple as you can see by these hot shots.
