Inspiration: Fun in the Sun

Spring has finally arrived, which means it’s time for beachwear to start making waves on the pages of some our favorite glossies. We’ve compiled a few standout swim spreads this month that will have us dreaming of the sun, surf and sand as we brace for a cold and snowy day in New York tomorrow.

Photographer Theo Wenner and model Camille Rowe transport us to the colorful surroundings of Puerto Rico in the latest issue of Jalouse. Rowe roams from biker bar to broke-down boardwalk clad in a cool mint Mara Hoffman latticework bikini, sequined Roberto Cavalli monokini, billowing Agent Provocateur beach robe and tie-dyed pants from Pink.

As the face of Eres, Lara Stone is no stranger to bikinis and beaches. In this Vogue US editorial shot by Mario Testino, the Bardot-esque beauty catches some rays in Rio de Janeiro in flirty bikinis from Gap, Marni, Gottex, Tooshie, Missoni and Louis Vuitton.

The March issue of Elle France celebrates beach season with a bang in a glamorous eighty-page editorial featuring Caroline Trentini and photographed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino. The statuesque model shows us how to rock spring’s key ready-to-wear looks on the beach, such as humble greige goods from Micheal Kors, a crisp striped shirtdress from Thierry Colson, and a girlish jumpsuit from Sonia Rykiel.
