This has to be one of the cutest elephant print playsuits of all time! 1950s

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.

    The use of a simple knit, and the contrasting fabric of the top and shorts adds visual interest, an effective trademark of Valentina.
