Ah, April — the month when the suns finally rolls out of bed, and one can practically taste the summer on their lips. Soon, we’ll all be gallivanting around in short sleeves and sunning up a storm in swimsuits.
And the sooner summer shows up, the better, because the sight of this 1955 Charm magazine editorial has given me a bad case of the sundress-and-bathing suit blues. Just look at, for one, how innovative and flattering the swimsuits in this spread are. I’m particularly wowed by the ruffle-bottomed one. It’s got a great shape and a rad print of—what is that, barrel people? Anyhow, that suit, that effortless sailor top and shorts combo, the simple-yet-chic accessorizing of those super sundresses — even those crazy culottes — all of it takes my breath away.
What’s your favorite look from this editorial?
