Go retro in your swimwear

Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summertime, but if you ask me, it's already hot enough out there to be stripping down to the bare minimum.

Regardless of what the calendar says, it's swimsuit season, and it's time to find you a new one, if you haven't already. In this week's cover story, Summer Guide 2011: The Swimsuit Edition, we feature some of Charlotte's rising stars, including local musicians, a burlesque dancer and even a viral video sensation, sporting some vintage suits from some of the city's best vintage shops.

In the above photo, Kaya is wearing a black faux bikini, found at Kitsch-y-Cool Vintage at Sleepy Poet Antique Mall, while TC is wearing a pair of Birdwell Beach Britches, found at The Rat's Nest. FYI: The black faux bikini was only $8.

Other spots you might want to check out to find great retro swimwear include Hong Kong Vintage and Buffalo Exchange, both in Plaza Midwood.
