See 22 Retro-Inspired Swimsuits


Try as you might, chances are there will be at least one weekend this summer that will require wearing a bathing suit.

Add some shades and you’ll be ready to beat the heat. Click through our slideshow to see retro-inspired swimsuits perfect for lounging by the pool or seaside.
