If you’re a long-term visitor to this site you would have figure out by now know vintage inspired clothes is a huge passion of mine. I have venture into proper vintage shop but often come away empty-handed and it not the right fit for me but I do buy a lot of retro/vintage inspired stuff. However as we’re now in summer and thinking about going on holiday (well you lucky lot probably are – sadly I’m not!), I’m now thinking a lot about retro swimwear. My rule of thumb when it comes to retro swimwear, If it’s polka dotted, ruched and contains an outrages print it’s likely to find its way into my swimwear ‘collection’. I really need to find a pool or at least a spa to wear these swimwear.
So here are some of my current favorites that are easily available in the UK.
