Having rediscovered my love for Dick Van Dyke via Chitty Chitty Bang Bang this afternoon, I was really taken with the beach scene and the bathing suits.
Apart from just being really quaint and quintessentially English, the red jumpsuit and Breton stripes are very SS 2010! I had a browse around the high street for similar cover ups and found lots of treats. I think it would be clever to buy them up now before the inevitable ‘sell out’ just before your hols.
NEW LOOK – Kelly Brook range
It’s black, but the heart print is really cute. Wear it now with tights and heels.
And for the men, nothing matches up to Dick’s long john navy and white swimmers, but these swim shorts from Old Navy would be a safe bet for most modern men. I’m sure there would be similar styles to be found at GAP.
