14 Retro-Inspired Swimsuits to Get You in the Mood for Summer

Vintage prints and silhouettes make a splash.

Toronto got its first official heatwave warning from Envrionment Canada this week and so the AC is on full bast here, and across Canada, right now. The sunshine and heat are warmly welcomed, though we’re now in a race to rejig our wardrobes before the summer is over once again. Whilst we may still be stuck at home, that doesn’t mean there’s no need for swimwear – Harry Styles’ video clip (released last week) for his new track Watermelon Sugar inspired our desire to take a stroll around our living rooms in our best retro-inspired swimsuits. 60s and 70s-inspired prints and silhouettes lend well to swimwear, and many of the tops and one pieces can be worn as clothing when paired with shorts or a silk midi skirt for a trip around the block. Bold florals and high-waisted styles are just right for lounging on a condo balcony, too, meanwhile belted bathing suits bring the vintage vibe – don’t have a belted suit to hand? Try styling an existing swimsuit with a belt to get the look out of your own closet.
