Your Strong Suit:
Six Takes on Summer Swim

We all have our dreamy summer escape: traversing the rugged shores of Chilmark, floating in the bath-temperature water along Bali’s sandbar, dipping your feet in the nearest rooftop pool. Whatever your pleasure, it helps to be prepared. And preparation, in this case, involves the perfect poolside look. While we’re big fans of sticking to what you know, this season’s swimwear trends—forever-classic, full-on adventurous, somewhere in the middle—make this summer especially ripe for testing uncharted waters.

    This one goes out to our boss lady. A fallback uniform for streamlining the day post–Tracy Anderson while perusing the Amagansett farmers’ market, stopping over at goop MRKT in Sag Harbor, and taking in the sunset, sangria in hand. The muted palette makes it a smart blank canvas for doing it all over again the next weekend.
