Wardrobe dilemma: Loving this seasons '50s trend but not sure how to get the retro look on the beach?
Beach Tomato Solution: Luckily for beach fashion, '50s swimwear is causing quite a trend storm, with high-waisted bottoms, which are both stylish and help to hide a multitude of sins (there's a first) in solid retro colors and patterns, gracing the catwalks of SS/12. This cut really is the epitome of pin-up glamour, and this Mouille ? black high-waisted number hits all the stylish nails on the head. Team with some perfectly retro sunglasses and a large oversized hat and, retro you certainly shall be.

Beach Tomato Solution: For an easy beach to bar transition, forget layers and always pack a lightweight dress or jumpsuit in your beach bag in the morning. This on trend printed Hanne Bloch jumpsuit is perfect for this, teamed with a fluro necklace to covet this season's biggest neon trend.
