Retro Stage’s latest summer sale is the perfect opportunity to stock up on adorable vintage pieces for all occasions! Here you’ll find a selection of our favorite picks, all of which are made of light, breathable fabrics in vibrant colors, so you can make a statement while making the most of your vacation.

Red 1950s Strawberry Ruffle Strap Swimsuit

Strawberries are an iconic symbol of summertime, which means a strawberry-themed swimsuit is perfect for expressing your vacation appreciation. Patterned with white seeds and accented with leafy green frills and triple spaghetti straps, there’ll be no mistaking your bold, whimsical personality when you’re wearing this two-piece.

Multicolor 1950s Skull Halter Swimsuit

Let’s kick things off with something a little edgy for our alt girls. This gothic two-piece features a black, red, and beige color palette and is patterned all over with grinning skulls. The halter neckline and adjustable cutout drawstrings add an undeniably feminine touch that rounds out the grittiness of the print for a design that’s both cute and cool.

Black 1950s Cherry Bow V-Neck Swimsuit

A modern take on a classic swimwear design, this suit has a low-cut V-neck top and modest skort-style bottoms—think of it like a cheerleading skirt! The vibrant cherry print is complemented by adorable bows tied at the base of the straps, making for a piece that’s full of girlish charm.

Multicolor 1950s Rainbow Stripes Swimsuit

The candy-colored stripes of this two-piece perfectly represent the sweet personality of the person wearing it. With white button accents, a keyhole back, and a frilly V-neckline that transitions into double spaghetti straps, there’s a little bit of everything here.

Pale Pink 1950s Solid Ruched Swimsuit

The textured baby-pink fabric that makes up this one-piece is gently gathered at the side seams to create delicate ruching that runs all the way down to the ruffled leg hems. At the bodice, the faux bow design contrasts beautifully with the underbust keyhole and daring spaghetti straps for a soft and flirty look.

Red & Blue 1950s Chevron Stripe Strap Romper

While the colors used for this fun little romper might make you think it should be a Fourth of July wardrobe exclusive, the quirky chevron pattern on the bodice makes it suitable for wear outside of the holiday. The cozy, comfortable shorts and spaghetti straps are ideal for outdoor activities, like strolling through the rows of fresh produce at the neighborhood market.

Multicolor 1970s Rainbow Plaid Bow Swimsuit

If you’ve got a colorful personality and want to show it, there’s no better way than by wearing an equally colorful swimsuit! Even beyond the bold plaid pattern, there’s something going on everywhere you look with this piece—wrapped underbust fabric, a heart-accented belt, V-back straps, and to top it all off, a huge bow in the back. What’s not to love?

2-Piece 1960s Retro Lady Crop Top & Pencil Skirt

This incredibly unique outfit set brings to mind the sultry pin-ups and idyllic postcards of the mid-20th century. Its provocative imagery is balanced out by the modest construction of both the top and skirt, with just a hint of midriff peeking through to spice things up in a tasteful manner.

1950s Bow Polka Dot Swing Dress

Sleek, classy, and straightforward, this piece has just the right amount of bells and whistles. The icy blue fabric is studded with deep black polka dots, creating quite the eye-catching contrast, while the black ribbon belt accentuates your cinched waistline.

Sky Blue 1950s Strap Polka Dot Swing Dress

This is a fantastic all-purpose dress for the summer with its breezy, comfortable prairie skirt and charming blue-and-white polka-dot pattern. Complete with a curve-hugging waist panel and simple spaghetti straps, this piece can be worn for any number of occasions.

Red 1940s Halter Patchwork One-Piece Swimsuit

Classic vintage colors and patterns combine with modern design choices in this red-and-white one-piece. A tied halter neckline and fun waist accent are paired with subtle ruching and a modest low-cut hemline for a nostalgic yet chic result.

Red Cherry V-Neck Halter Lace-Up Romper

Another example of our favorite iconic vintage duo, red and white! This piece features a fun cherry-print bodice with a tied halter neckline and a low-cut back, a combo that just screams relaxation when combined with the comfy short bottoms. A romper like this is excellent for both going out in search of adventure and lounging around the house to beat the heat.

Yellow 1950s Sunflower Halter Romper

This bright and sunny romper is a must-have if you’re known for having a cheery, fun-loving attitude. Its lively sunflower print and ultra-comfortable design are the ideal combination for expressing yourself while out and about with friends and family.
