We love the idea that 100 years ago, women wore full-on dresses to the beach to read trashy romance novels and listen to the surf. Men also wore formal attire, or maybe sometimes a leotard to swim in. We don't know how much fun it could have been, but certainly there is something primal and natural enough about the beach and the ocean to keep people drawn to it, aligned on it, connected to it. We are still the same today, and in that sense, the more things change, the more they stay the same.
And if you're thinking something like "well, that's not true" or "nobody would ever go to a beach l like that", then you've clearly never been curious enough to google "what people wore to the beach 100 years ago."
This summer seems like a good time to celebrate how far we've come, so get out there and make some Summer Beach plans! Read something trashy. Drink something fruity. Wear a two-piece or whatever else you like. Don't forget your parasol.
