Inspired by stars like Marilyn Monroe, current celebs like Katy Perry can be seen wearing these on the cover of her album, but you can be guaranteed to see them all over the beach this summer and not just on the runway. Below are some ladylike runway styles!

And now…for some more realistic (as was the above style) swimwear!
This is how I would wear this style. If I find a good one piece I think I may buy one this year too. But I purchased this suit from J.Crew earlier this year. It has high waisted bottoms and and bunching which I think is so cute. Can’t wait for the sun to show it’s face!
J.Crew Tuille Underwire Top $60 and Tuille Retro Hipster $56 – jcrew.com

I also purchases this fun little retro suit for a steal at Forever 21…for get this…$8.90 a piece! And yes, I got a hat to go with it for $12.90. I thought it was worth it 🙂
