These images are from Ocean Drive Magazine's July/August 2009 issue, in which photographer Nicole Trunfio captures some seriously hot beachwear. My favorite image from the set is the first one in the gallery above, in which the model is dressed in a puffy bolero jacket and a high-waisted bikini bottom. What a great combination!

We've seen a resurgence in bolero jackets and high-waisted fashions. Check out some features that focus on these themes below.

Implications - Consumers are constantly looking backwards to see what influence they can get from the past designs. By modernizing retro fashion, a whole new design aesthetic can be created. Designers and marketers can attract more people to their designs and products by expanding on past creations and recreating them for the modern shopper.
