This past weekend was exceptionally gorgeous in NYC. Everyone was outside… riding bikes, walking dogs, grilling and generally enjoying the weather. That being said, we were inspired to call out our top 10 swimsuits and trends for summer.
The nautical one-piece from J.Crew is a must have. A little more conservative, this minimalist suit looks great when paired with denim cut-offs from A.P.C and some woven leather sandals.
Neoprene is no longer just for wetsuits ladies, as the new Cynthia Rowley for Roxy collection delivers functional and fashionable suits. Pastel hues, sweetheart necklines with chunky plastic zippers evoke a subtle but directional 80s atmosphere.
Christopher Kane paved the way for photorealistic tees with his gorilla and mushroom cloud imagery. Now, we see the Aussies take a stab at it in the form of simple one-piece swimsuits. We Are Handsome literally hit the nail on the head with their interpretation, which with complete authority, we are naming the MOST IMPORTANT SUIT of 2010. Yea, we said it.
Liberty and wallpaper florals look fresh for swim, especially oversized motifs on neutral backgrounds. These bikini’s from LOVER and Tori Praver make us feel like hazy afternoon picnics and floppy straw hats.
American Apparel must have Gaga fever just like us. The hooded one-piece pretty much sums up all things amazing, and we are totally backing it. The best part, (for maximum usage) you can wear it out to the club as a bodysuit, then take the D train straight to Coney Island as the sun rises, and no one would suspect a thing.
Tie-dye is still super important going forward, the Hurley Washed Ashore bikini is a prime example. Taking cues from the Proenza Schouler S/S10 Collection, these acidic and royal blue hues feel ultra fresh and clean.
