After surviving what felt like the longest, coldest winter ever, summer could not possibly come sooner. There is nothing that gets me as excited as the prospect of cavorting around in sunshine and blue skies in the fewest layers possible. Except, maybe, the thought of months filled with weekend barbecues and rooftop parties, exotic vacations and beach getaways.
Which brings me to swimsuit shopping. The one thing I’ve noticed lately is the increasing availability of intricately patterned suits that bear a closer resemblance to runway looks rather than your standard run-of-the-mill bikini or one-piece. Naturally, this put me on the hunt, searching far and wide to bring you the crème de la crème of this summer’s swimwear so that you can soak up the sun in style. (And honestly? Don’t worry about the tan lines. The only thing more on trend than these bathing suits is SPF.)
