Dress of the Day - July 25, 2011
Dress of the Day: Beach pajamas (1930s). I'm on the coast in Rhode Island so I'm in the mood for something sea-worthy, or at least beach-worthy. Beachwear, including swimsuits, loungewear, and sporty day clothing became popular in 1930s as swimming and sunbathing expanded as pastimes. Baking in the sun was considered healthy. This attractive outfit in summery white includes a cropped top over a printed halter with tie at the side, and wide legged pants. Notice the matching sandals. The hair and makeup look late 1930s into 1940s.
Would you wear this look, and if so what would you do in it?
