The Playsuit-A hot retro look for summer

Playsuits, onesies, rompers, no matter what you choose to call them,  they are a hot retro look for summer.  So release your inner pinup and get yourself into one of these  sassy little outfits. They’re a more feminine and glamorous alternative to shorts and a tank top.

Below are photos of Dita Von Teese rocking this look. The nautical print is a vintage inspired style by Dolce and Gabbana. The red one looks like authentic vintage.  Of course, she looks absolutely fabulous in both.

Check out the cherry necklace. That and the hat really pull the look together. Love  the sunglasses and shoes too!

    There are many vintage playsuits available on our website. They don’t come with underwire. But most have built in bras.
