While many of us try to block out the fact that spring means swimwear, designers this New York Fashion Week are easing us into that reality with some seriously show-stopping suits on the runway. Bikinis have been few and far between this season, thanks to the resurgence of the glamorous and chic one-piece.
Often incorporated with cut-out details (who really wears these swimsuits for tanning purposes, anyway?), neutral tones and black have been the most popular options in terms of color. Subtle bondage influences have also been present in the form of ties and buckles. Lower leg-lines also offer a more covered appeal than previous seasons’ affinity for a Brazilian cut.
Overall, it appears that designers are keeping the ‘real girl’ in consideration, displaying designs that are both functional and wearable. Here, we’ve shared the top suits you’ll want to snap up come spring.
