'70s-Inspired Swimwear: The Farrah Fawcett One-Piece

Farrah had a style of her own. She made everything she wore memorable. Where do you get your inspiration for a fabulous new beach look? You might channel Fast Times at Ridgemont High, the latest issue of Vogue, or paparazzi shots of celebrities on vacation. Today, we're drawing from possibly the most iconic swimsuit look of all time: the red one-piece worn by Farrah Fawcett. This photo helped Farrah Fawcett become a classic pinup. With her natural, pretty waves, a radiant tan, minimal makeup, and subtle jewelry, Farrah rocked the one-piece red suit.

One-pieces have always been a great choice for women, as they're timeless and sexy. If you want to get this look today, check out the newest suits in the 2013 line of Anne Cole Swimwear. Anne Cole makes a great one-piece suit in a pretty, modern red that will help you to recreate this winning look. The great thing about simple, well-cut women's swimsuits is that they can show off your best assets and minimize your flaws. The one-piece can hide your tummy and draw the eye away from your bust if you'd like to minimize it. At the same time, it will make you look slimmer, and the streamlined look lengthens your torso.

Depending on the color, a swimsuit like this can help you to make a statement or stay out of the limelight. Black is ideal if you're not feeling your most confident, while red is great if you want to be noticed. If you need a little something extra to slim your figure on the beach, check out the Anne Cole 2012 swimwear collection. A line of tummy control one-piece suits can help define your waist and keep you looking slender and chic. Once you've found the perfect swimsuit, complete your look with a safe, artificial tan and some beachy highlights to channel the '70s.

You might also consider pairing the simple bathing suit with chunky turquoise jewelry and a straw fedora. You'll find that the best thing about a solid-color one piece is how versatile it is. Take advantage of that and accessorize it your way! You can draw inspiration for swimsuits from women anywhere. Maybe your perfect look can be found on the beach this summer, or maybe it's in a classic summer film. There's no wrong place to find the look that's perfect for you. Pay close attention to beachgoers and celebrities whose body types are similar to yours, and you'll find out what flatters you. Farrah Fawcett's look is timeless. Get your own unforgettable look with a simple, elegant swimsuit that makes you feel confident and gorgeous.
