I absolutely LOVE, LOVE the vintage photo archives by LIFE Magazine! It is such an amazing source for vintage fashion inspiration of really wonderful photographers that are not well known.
Here are some fantastic vintage 1950s beach fashion photos photographed by Loomis Dean. All images are from Life Photo Archives hosted on Google. If you search "BEACH 1950s" you'll find a lot more photos from this series, but these were my favorite!
