A white strapless playsuit, particularly one with a tailored shape and belted waist, was perfect for the beach back in 1950 – and is still perfect now.
During the 1930s and '40s, clothing worn for leisure, either in a resort setting or just casually at home, became acceptable and available on a larger scale. Designers offered play-wear that was easy and comfortable, made of less expensive fabrics, such as cotton. Worn by Millicent Rogers, this sexy one-shouldered top is draped like evening wear, the drawstring at the side adding interest and style.
