Old Hollywood glamour has most definitely seen a resurgence on the red carpet recently, especially with bombshells like Dita Von Teese who combine modern-day fashion trends with retro beauty and elegance. This summer, Sheila Frank swimwear will allow you to bring that same vintage glam feel poolside with her collection of retro-inspired swimwear. So tuck away your itsy-bitsy string bikini for a bit and check out these Bettie Page-esque looks.
Sheila Frank’s suits are the epitome of timeless: you’ll never go out of style in these cutout one-pieces and tankinis. (Besides, more coverage leaves more to the imagination!) Sheila Frank swimsuits are available in prints that have been around – and remained popular – for decades. You’ll find suits in leopard print, polka dots, as well as a flower-y design dubbed “wallpaper print.” The suits are also available in solid colors, if you’re worried about matching your sarong to your suit. (We’ve all been there at one time or another.) Some pieces, such as the Starlet Suit, a sexy leopard-print one-piece with a center cutout, have matching removable skirts—perfect for more coverage when you want it, or merely as a cover-up on the way to the beach.
While swimsuits from other companies can run you upwards of $150 or $200, Sheila Frank swimwear is economical and chic, with prices in the $70-$80 range (most suits are either $72 or $74). So if you’ve been looking for a suit that’s sweet and sexy, but at the same time unique (one you won’t see on all your girlfriends—until they see you in one!), Sheila Frank is exactly what you need.
