Maybe the one-piece 50’s inspired swimsuits are back in fashion, but when was the last time that you parted with your beloved bikini? Did you know that before the 40’s they didn’t even exist? We could go on and on about the different types that exist today, but let’s go back in time, to the golden decades, and talk about the birth of every woman’s best summer buddy. It started as a two-piece, basically the original one-piece with a part in the middle missing. Years had to pass though, to shamelessly show some navel. A woman decided to call this innovation “le bikini” and that’s when it all stated. Headlines, articles, photos and advertisements. All about the new trend, that initially shocked the international crowd. Some of the greatest stars started to wear it and demonstrate it at the beach. Brigitte Bardot, Marilyn Monroe and Catherine Deneuve are just some of them. It didn’t take long for the trend to become massive. Soon, the shocking new style became the most normal thing to wear, not only at the beach but also in the big screen. I’m sure you’ve all seen at least once some vintage movies with the Bond girls or maybe Cher wearing a bikini. With vintage feels all over the place, I can only suggest that you go for a high-waisted bikini bottom and a wide bikini top. You really can’t go wrong with classic pieces like that. History is what got us where we are after all, right?
