Let me educate you more about this style and how one piece bikini and swimsuit style came from.
A one-piece swimsuit most commonly refers to swimwear worn by women and girls when swimming in the sea or in a swimming pool, or for any activity in the sun, such as sun bathing. Today, the one-piece swimsuit is usually a skin-tight garment that covers a female’s torso, except maybe the back or upper chest.
Before the popularity of the two-piece swimsuit, and then the bikini, virtually all female swimwear completely covered at least the wearer’s torso, and men also wore similar swimsuits. While the bikini has increasingly found popular acceptance since the 1960s, the one-piece swimsuit has maintained a place on beaches to this day. Some people consider a one-piece swimsuit to be more modest than a two-piece bikini. In some situations, the wearing of a one-piece swimsuit may be mandatory or expected, as in the case of school swimming events and international swimming events.
The modern one-piece swimsuit made its appearance in the mid-1900s, when the style was widely described as a maillot. Its widespread acceptance is attributed to Australian swimmer Annette Kellerman, who attracted further attention to the style when, in 1907, she was arrested on a Boston beach for indecent exposure because her swimsuit showed arms, legs and the neck, a costume she adopted from England, and which was similar to men’s swimsuits of the time. The arrest prompted a wide public outrage which added to the acceptance of the style. Kellerman marketed these bathing suits and the style came to be known as “the Annette Kellerman”. The one-piece swimsuit became accepted swimsuit attire for women in parts of Europe by 1910, and other places, and was the authorized attire for women’s swimming at the 1912 Summer Olympics, the first at which women competed.
Harper’s Bazaar praised the Kellerman swimsuit, writing in June 1920 (vol. 55, no. 6, p. 138) – “Annette Kellerman Bathing Attire is distinguished by an incomparable, daring beauty of fit that always remains refined.” The following year, in June 1921 (vol. 54, no. 2504, p. 101) it wrote that these bathing suits were “famous … for their perfect fit and exquisite, plastic beauty of line. In the United States, beauty pageants of women in bathing costumes became popular from the 1880s. However, such events were not regarded as respectable. Beauty contests became more respectable with the first modern “Miss America” contest held in 1921, though less respectable beauty contests continued to be held. Nevertheless, the Annette Kellerman continued to be considered by some as the most offensive style of swimsuit in the 1920s and became the focus of censorship efforts. Even in 1943, pictures of the Kellerman swimsuit were produced as evidence of indecency in Esquire v. Walker, Postmaster General.
Batwing Selves Style
This time of year seems to get everyone into a loving mood, and the color red is everywhere you look. Roses, Dress teddy bears, tiny bikinis! Yes, you read that correctly, tiny red dress are a hot commodity this Valentine’s Day!
Batwing sleeves are an interesting, breezy look, and they are comfortable to wear. Perhaps surprisingly, they will work for any body types. Whether you are well endowed or small chested, broad shouldered or narrow shouldered, short-waisted or long-waisted, apple shaped or pear shaped, the batwing can be flattering.
Where this Batwing Sleeve style came from?
When we think of a batwing sleeve we almost always think of the 80’s! However this type of sleeve has been around in fashion since 1910 and reached its first peak in the 1940’s. The batwing sleeve can also be called the Dolman sleeve and they are very roomy and resemble a bats wingspan, hence the name! Even before 1910 the batwing sleeve was created in the Middle East and Euoropeans adopted this in the 1600’s as a model for a military jacket. Through the 1910’s and 20’s people in Western Europe were fascinated by eastern cultures and the use of the batwing sleeve in garments became more popular. Cuts like this were seen as new and exotic and gave an elegant and feminine line to a garment while still allowing for free movement.
In the 1940’s the batwing sleeve dress became the most stylish piece of clothing a woman could own as people wanted to relive the glamour and sparkle of the 30’s before the war hit. The batwing declined after the early 1950’s as new cuts and designs were coming to the forefront of fashion, but they became a hit again in the 1980’s. The style of top in the 80’s came more from the waist rather than near the pit like in the 40’s. The cuffs were elasticated to enhance the volume of the sleeve and there is no seam as it is already cut into the material when in production. Famous women of the 80’s were often seen wearing the batwing sleeves on dresses, shirts or blouses and girl band Salt N Pepa were big fans of the look. The style has remained in fashion today as we see stars embracing the 80’s look but has been slightly modernized. The sleeves still have the same fullness and volume as before but the cuffs are now sometimes left open to give a more flowing look.
Because of the large amount of fabric on the top half, wear slim fitting trousers or skirts to avoid looking too frumpy or even add a pair of leggings for that classic 80’s look! If your sleeves are on a dress add a waist cinching belt to bring some shape to the outfit and stick with the open type of sleeve. Original 80’s batwing tops can easily be found at vintage stores and knitwear in this style is worth looking out for this winter!
This Red batwing dress is perfect for all the ladies who want to flaunt curves this Valentine. Before Buying make sure that the fabric must be drapey so that the volume collapses softly along the contour of the body.The bottom half of the top and the hems of the sleeves need to taper back into a sleek silhouette.Without these specific style details you might look like you’re actually going to take off and fly. Not so fab.
Batwing styling works well in soft model and rayon knit fabrications, fine gauge knitwear, and woven silky blouses. It’s also rather sweet in a banded tunic style, dress or jacket. It looks wonderful both on its own, and when belted at the natural waist.

What is a Shirt Style dress?
A shirt dress is a style of women’s dress that borrows details from a man’s shirt. These can include a collar, a button front, or cuffed sleeves. Often, these dresses are made up in crisp fabrics including cotton or silk, much like a men’s dress shirt would be. As they are typically cut without a seam at the waist, these dresses often have a looser fit, usually relying on a belt to define the waist. Button fronts and a forgiving fit make this a flattering look for most body types.
Shirt dresses were sometimes called “shirtwaist dresses” when they were fashionable during the 1950s. The 1950s version of the shirtdress was launched as part of Christian Dior’s post–World War II “New Look” couture designs, with a full skirt held up by wearing a crinoline. They often featured a notched collar, and elbow-length sleeves with cuffs. More informal versions of the shirt dress, made of cotton, but retaining the full skirt and collar, became a staple part of many women’s wardrobes during the 1950s, with designers such as Anne Fogarty becoming known for their versions of this style. A 1957 issue of Life magazine includes a photo of a typical cotton shirt dress selling for $25 in New York City.
A variation of the original shirtdress is the “T-shirt dress”. T-shirt dresses began being produced in the 1960s, and are simply an elongated version of a T-shirt.
A dress in the style of a shirt is shirt dress. You can wear it casually or jazz it up, depending upon the styling and your mood this Valentine.

Denim Dress Style
If you are sporty, edgy, tomboy and looking glam this Valentine, then denim dress is your thing girl. A dress in the style of a shirt is shirt dress. You can wear it casually or jazz it up, depending upon the styling and your mood.
A denim dress is like a denim skirt. It’s easy, classically cool, and perfect for summer weekends and travel. But what I prefer about the denim dress is that unlike the skirt, you don’t have to worry about what to put on top, and it works just as well on its own with flip-flops as it does with wedges, gladiator sandals, or booties. Then how much or how little you accessorize is totally up to you.

Sexy Slit Style
A new study shows that double dating can add spark to a stale relationship. This Valentine’s Day, consider ditching the dinner for two and adding another couple to the mix to reignite the flames.
According to the findings out of a Wayne State University study, double dating was shown to help couples feel higher levels of passion and see their partner in a new and positive light. So you twinning this Valentine, my pick is to grab a pair of out with Slits. Ya now we are getting heat up.
Style up with Slit
There are plenty of star style staples that can be translated to real life — one of which is the insanely sexy, thigh-high slit. Whether it’s worn in the form of a maxi dress, floor-length skirt, or full-out glamorous gown, a sky-high slit is one of the simplest ways to add a little oomph and sex appeal to your night-out outfit. And the best part? It can be totally tasteful and subtle — when done the right way, of course. So if you’re ready to show a little leg, this Valentine.
Choose a lighter fabric
What’s the point of wearing a leg-baring slit if it’s in heavy wool, crepe, or jacquard fabric that allows for little movement and few chances for a peek at your thighs? That’s why it’s smart to choose a flowing, lightweight skirt — made from a fabric such as satin or chiffon, that will move effortlessly with your body and flow over your legs and curves.
Go for high heels
There are few things worse than showing off your gorgeous, long legs with a thigh-high slit only to look down and see a clunky shoe sticking out. Keep your entire outfit sleek and streamlined by choosing a lightweight, low-profile sandal or heel.
Define your waist
Whether it’s with a thin belt or a thick band of contrasting-color fabric, defining and cinching your waist is a sure-fire way to make your sky-high slit just that more seductive.
