Sombreros and Sailor suits – 1930’s beach styles modeled by Carole Lombard and Ester Ralston

Left: Carole Lombard goes Mexican in the newest resort fashion – a swanky version of the Mexican serape, which is an ideal cover for the one-piece swim suit. The serape may also be spread out and used on the beach as a blanket. Carole chose one of brown linen, lined and belted with green terry-cloth. She tops it all of with a straw sombrero.
Right:Esther Ralston introduces a beach version of the sailor suit made up of soft, fine, white linen. The sailor collar of the tuck-in blouse is trimmed with navy blue braid and there is a navy star embroidered in the two corners of the collar in back. The slacks are fitted and buttoned in real sailor fashion on both hips. Only the sandals are non-nautical but fit the ensemble very well don’t they?!

That’s all !
