Vintage Inspired Summer Fashion

To refresh your wardrobe this summer, draw inspiration from timeless fashion icons. These vintage beauties will have your summer outfits looking elegant and classic!

Grace Kelly shows us that less clothing can be the perfect outfit. A patterned swimsuit coverup makes enough of a statement that shoes become optional and all you need are your favorite pair of sunglasses!

Elizabeth Taylor knew that breezy dresses were dressy and comfortable. But most importantly, they keep you cool on a hot summer day! Her head scarf is also a perfect accent because they are fun and versatile. 

Sleeveless shirts were one of Jackie Kennedy’s go-to’s during the summer. Pair them with shorts and a hat, and you have an outfit great for a day on the beach!

Audrey Hepburn knew that hats were a cute way to keep the sun off your face and avoid future wrinkles. You can flaunt your floppy hat sophisticatedly when you wear it with a dress like her, or casual when you’re in your swimwear. 

Marilyn Monroe shows us how even a one piece swim suit can be cute, flirty and sexy! But then again, we all know she would have looked amazing in a potato sack.
