Ring In Memorial Day With These 1950s Beach Fashions

To celebrate the arrival of beach season in LIFE’s Nina Leen photographed that season’s trends for women: strapless and halter-top swimsuits, “pirate pants” drawn from fashions of the French Riviera and island-inspired straw hats.

<b>Caption from LIFE.</b> Knee-length shorts, called "pirate pants," are a copy of a style popular on the Riviera last summer. Made of striped piqué, they fit tight to the thigh and have a fly front. The absorbent worsted jersey middy fits loosely, is long enough to cover wet bathing suits. (Shorts: $7.95; middy: $12.95; both by Cabana.)
