Vogue said Ahoy! to Summer Travel in its June 1, 1931, issue with the help of urbane French illustrator Jean Pagès, whose sailor girl is the definition of chic—and proof that “beach clothes [are] in full sail.” She’s pulled on wide-legged, high-waisted pants over what is most likely a striped maillot, and accessorized this red, white, and blue seagoing look with a coordinating stack of bangles and a saucy beret. Clothes like these, noted the magazine, “are the clothes Nature really intended you to wear. The clothes in which you feel yourself. No chi-chi and no shams. Theirs is the heritage of sun-baked wharfs, of whirling spray, of nets spread out to dry. They have the sweet smell—you half believe it—of sun and salt.”

Great quick puzzle to do for one person in a night, I love it!
