elegance: trois

This lovely lady is showing us how to go from the boardwalk to the beach in what was called “beach pajamas.”

According to this book, “Worn since the war by both sexes as casual, indoor clothing, pajamas appeared at the beaches and casinos in 1929 and received their popular name in the summer of 1931. Ridiculed, sung about, and prohibited by the church, pajamas were finally accepted when the courtiers thought to feminize them and erase any hint of ambiguity.”

This photo screams badass.
