Suits For The Summer

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: 

J. Crew Factory Striped One-Piece Tank Swimsuit, $62.50

Currently dreaming of wearing this suit in the south of France as I write this...

All it's missing is a sun hat.

Chubbies The Simon Says, $89.50

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.

Beach Bunny Rib Tide One Piece, $175

Is this what VS Angels will be buying now that Victoria's Secret doesn't sell swim anymore? 

Adore Me Veranna Set, $49.99 with VIP Membership

It's trendy because it's a low-key Beyonce reference.
