Anthropologie swim: those classic shapes

It’s not unusual for our vintage fashion inspirations series to focus on swimwear from another age; be it Marilyn, or Grace Kelly, or some lesser-known model in a shapely 1940s swimming costume. And shapely is the key word in all of that; for there’s much to the vintage cuts in creating a womanly figure, something a string bikini will never be as good at. Anthropologie are going for those high waists and full cups in their April 2011 swimwear look book – and those vintage-inspired shapes will do wonders for many a body.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
