A recent survey asked people what they felt the most “Iconic,” Fashion Items were? You can probably guess most of them. The Miniskirt came it at number one, followed by The “Little Black Dress.” Also making the list were knee high boots, denim jackets, bell bottoms, leather jackets and shoulder pads. To my shock, the Bikini DID NOT make the list of Iconic fashion items. The Bikini was born in the 1940’s with the birth of the two piece swim suite. The more revealing bikini design came into being in the 1960’s. Maybe the truth is, the Bikini has been around so long, that no one even thinks of it as being iconic. It’s just another day at the beach.
