Retro swimsuits have made a huge comeback this year, and, with the summer season in full swing, now is the perfect time to invest in one. For those who do not know where to start looking, here are a few ideas to get you inspired.

Polka Dots
Polka dots are fabulously retro, and will always be a showstopper on the beach. For a flattering two-piece swimsuit with polka dots all over, in either black or red, click on over to Modcloth and check out their Esther Williams swimsuit. With a bold print, low-cut legs and ruching at the front, this style is fun and flirty and has just the right amount of retro flair. For polka dots that are slightly more subtle, check out the demi-bikini from American Eagle, which comes in black with tiny white dots, and features a sweetheart neckline with a front keyhole. Alternatively, for a look that will really stop traffic, try on the Pearly King bikini from Johanna Ortiz, which boasts a ruffle at the front that simply exudes a vintage vibe.

Florals
Retro floral prints are beautifully feminine, and Stella McCartney has one that you will not want to miss out on. This two-piece features a tie-back bikini top with a plunging neckline but has adjustable shoulder straps that make it fit like a dream. Old Navy also has a floral style that is equally stunning, with a bandeau-style bikini top, featuring a removable halter strap and molded balconette cups, and high-waisted bottoms. For those who would like some extra coverage around their chest, Adriana Degreas has a floral bikini that features layered straps and a square neckline and has a retro but tropical vibe at the same time.

Stripes
Stripes are another print that is never out of place on the beach, and the Brigitte bikini from Solid and Striped is the best place to begin looking. This piece was inspired by styles from the 50’s and features high-waisted bottoms along with a triangle top. Free from wire and padding, this is a swimsuit that will hug your figure and will truly be comfortable to wear. If you would prefer a halter neck, check out the striped bikini from Fendi’s Spring Summer 17 collection, which comes in a striking yellow and beige shade, and would go perfectly with some square-framed retro-inspired sunglasses.

Off-Shoulder
The off-shoulder look is another trend that is so hot this summer, so combining it with a retro-style bikini will leave you with the perfect beach look for 2017. For a fun, carefree, off-shoulder one-piece, head to J Crew, who have one that has been inspired by a vintage top. With a shelf bra for extra support, the bright print was inspired by the southern coast of Spain and is one that will no doubt ensure that all eyes are on you.

Your swimsuit says so much about you, which is why it is important to choose a style that really makes you feel confident. Whether this may be an off-shoulder one-piece or a daring polka dot bikini, there are so many ideas out there to consider when it comes to retro-inspired swimsuits.
