The Norma Kamali Resort 2014 collection of swimsuits takes its inspiration from pin-up girl attire. Kamali has expanded her signature line of black and white suits with colorful additions like electric blue, red, lemon and coral.

Just as the collection is well rounded with a variety of silhouettes and colors, the suits feature a good variety of looks from showy to demure. Although Kamali typically includes a peek of skin somewhere in her designs, like cutouts on the midriff and slingy one-shoulder looks. The playful shows of skin help to keep the designs from looking like they were pulled straight out of the 40s.

The 40s-inspired collection is beautifully balanced and sure to make for great photo ops on the beach. Just don't forget the sunblock and your best pin-up pose.
