The 1970s was undoubtedly a decade of indulgent luxury, with the birth of the disco era and the popularity of decadent holidays in the Riviera sunshine. With that comes a striking fashion aesthetic that's captured well in this Stripe Bustier Bikini from Urban Outfitters.
The two piece manages to capture a contrasting hyper-femininity at the same time as creating a structural silhouette, capturing that later seventies love of daring shapes. The mix of stripe directions highlights the seaming structure, while the lines are kept clean and simple enough to carry the design.
It's available now from Urban Outfitters UK for £35.
