Back to USSR or Russian movie star in swimming suit

Many people think that sex appeal was strictly forbidden in Soviet cinema. Well, it’s only half of the truth: sensual scences were there, but they were served as delicious desserts in very small portions.

And sexy actresses and actors were never called «sexy» but «attractive».

Soviet movie star Irina Skobtseva looks very seductive in swimming suit in good old movie Ordinary Man (1956).

No doubt, dark bandeau one-piece swimming suit is the perfect choice for girls who want to highlight their feminity (and for those who want to hide few extra inches of the belly).

Here are some modern variations for an inspiration.

Super feminine in pants

It might sound a bit strange but wearing pants and jacket you can highlight your femine side at most.

Zimmermann’s black Bowerbird Blazer + Cushnie et Ochs‘s very sexy Gloss Jersey Twisted Bodysuit and black  High-Wasted Pants (there is a white option too) + John Fluevog’s pumps Andromeda + Valextra‘s blue Twist Pochette + Ricardo Basta‘s Dragon Brooch = posh and at the same time elegant outfit special occasions.

Memories about life in the USSR and retro-outfit

In times of the Soviet Union for most of people it was very difficult to get latest fashion clothes and women had no other choice but to learn how to make something from nothing. From one hand such situation was very depressive from other it stimulated imagination and helped to develop your own designers skills and sense of style – each coin has 2 sides, right?
I remember when I was a child in 80ies in the USSR corduroy pants were in the list of the most desirable fashion things: if you got them you automatically join the club of stylish girls and boys.

Volcom‘s corduroy Wale Watching Pants, Zimmermann‘s Karmic Bell Sleeve Blouse, Chie Mihara‘s Zalena Brown shoes and Melinda Maria‘s big Sophie Pod Ring Gold Coral White CZ will make a pretty retro-outfit.

Playing Boho girl

Arcadia Braid Swing Top (made of pure silk, by the way) + Rhythm High Waisted Pants + Tie Mary Jane shoes, all by Australian label Zimmermann would look pretty well with Pink Tones Mix Vegetable Ivori Statement Necklace by LeJu and Sullivan Hobo bag by Rag & Bone.
