With fresh summer colors and flirty styles Down East Basics has some of my favorite swim fashions of the year. Yes, ruffles have it again. They even have a pretty little swim skirt with ruffle detailing. If I had to choose an era of my favorite fashions it would be the 1950's. Down East Basics Swim wear is reminiscence of the glamorous suits you would have seen Marilyn Monroe or Rita Hayworth wearing. Add a big hat and you will be ready for the beach.
