1930s and 1940s bathing beauties

We are nearly in the middle of August and I haven’t talked about the glamorous 1930s and 1940s in terms of beach fashion! How is that possible?
In the 30s, bathing suits were shorter and often would be combined with wide pants, head scarfs or even capes. Fashion got more sophisticated, and women would bring the coolest garments to pool parties and summer events. 
Years later, in the 1940s, the sophisticated look popular in the 30s came along with shorter dresses, as well as oriental and tiki inspired patterns. Floral accessories and head scarves would also be a trend back in the day, especially in outdoor places. The classic pin up look would soon pop out, with young starlets such as Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth on their “bikinis” posing for photographers right in from of the sea.
I really hope you are enjoying the holidays in the sun!
