Suits For The Summer
It's hard to believe it (especially because New York City temps are still hovering in the 50s) but summer is right around the corner. This realization, coupled with three impending weekend trips in a row on the horizon, has made me hit the Internet hard to find the perfect swimwear.
I love that modest suits are popular again. From a purely personal point standpoint, I think they're more flattering on me than barely-there bikinis. In addition, I don't just put on my suit to soak up vitamin D and acquire new tan lines. I like to actually get in the water, swim, kayak, paddle board... whatever. Turns out, you need a suit held together with more than three strings to do so.
Luckily, my online adventures brought me to a plethora of worthy buys (too many, in fact. SOS.). So. Behold — the only swimwear shopping list you'll ever need... for 2017:
Currently dreaming of wearing this suit in the south of France as I write this...
I fell for tropical prints when Blake Lively wore a jumpsuit covered in palm branches and I never recovered.
Live out your Rip Girls dreams in this sporty two-piece. Hawaii not included.
My Calvins meets LA meets Montauk.
This suit will take you from family vacays to weekend getaways with friends.
Chubbies isn't just for guys anymore! This pineapple one-piece is the perfect whimsical addition to any pool party.
Take it from the beach to the boardwalk with high-waisted denim shorts.
Just Fab Retro One-Piece, $42.95 with VIP Membership
Please, I'm begging, wear this instead of an American flag bikini on the Fourth of July.
Another perfectly viable adult option for an American pride-focused holiday (or any other day in the sunshine).
Off-the-shoulder lives to see another season.
Neoprene is like the Spanx of the sea. Plus, nothing says nostalgia like a swim suit that resembles a handheld battery operated game I owned in the fourth grade.
Is this what VS Angels will be buying now that Victoria's Secret doesn't sell swim anymore?
Will risk weird tan lines for chic crochet.
It's trendy because it's a low-key Beyonce reference.
What I'll be wearing to my imaginary trip to Cuba...
I seriously wish I had this set when I went to Cabo in January. Shop the literal one-piece HERE.
