Perfect Pin-Up
October 17, 2012
By , Associate Editor

Sun, sand, surf, and short shorts. In this heat, it’s all about staying cool, so slip on some sandals, tie on a Rosie-esque bandana to smooth down those flyaway locks, and get ready for some fun in the sun. 

As much as we love an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini, it's always good to give your skin some R&R from those beating rays (regardless of your melatonin levels). Take a hint from pin-up legacies like sexy Jayne Mansfield, and mix things up with a high-waisted bikini or a perfectly cut onesie. Take a trip though the history of the modern bikini, and with the help of Missoni and Norma Kamali, you’ll be the new pin-up.
