Retro evening wear is all the rage this summer, from weddings to proms. However, ES Magazine has taken this fad a tad further, showcasing some elegant, vintage formal wear-inspired swimsuits in its latest editorial, starring Sara Sampaio and photographed by Squiz Hamilton.

Throughout the editorial, Sampaio wears everything from suave, skirted swimsuits to mod-style, 60s-esque bathers. One swimsuit in particular is both fashionable and flattering. Featuring a tankini style, this navy blue suit is accented with white trim, giving it a nautical feel. Its white belt, high-waist and low V-neck give it a pin-up girl attitude, which is further enhanced by Sampaio's bouffant hairdo and round-framed sunglasses.

With this editorial, ES Magazine has proven that 50s- and 60s-era swimsuits are not out of fashion. Indeed, their vintage styles are often more flattering for women, as well as more fashionable. Stats for Retro Gown-Inspired Swimsuits Trending: Older & Warm
