Trend Corner- High Side Splits & Draped Crotch Revisited

They say there is nothing new under the sun, and this rings true in fashion also. I came across this pic of Iman during a 1976 photo shoot by Norman Parkinson. I immediately noticed that today's double split trend is a take of this sexy and exotic swimsuit. I absolutely love vintage pieces, especially when those pieces reappear years later in different styles and trends. 

Here are a few up to date looks that incorporate that side baring splits.

This look is also revisited in the loose drape shape that is seen in the swimsuit. Here are a few updated versions of the loose draped shape.
