Poolside Glamour

This Summer has brought some serious heat and there’s no better way to cool off than being impossibly chic by a sublime pool. Today’s swimwear trend is focusing heavily on the maillot de bain, which makes perfect sense as it is a practical singular garment, but can be very sophisticated with revealing cut outs, high-cut legs, and plunging necklines. Femininity is not compromised and wearing a tank suit can be outright glamorous. For July’s fashion editorial, we took it a step further and paired some of the most stylish swimwear with current street wear for looks that are high on fantasy and glamour. We shot these looks on a sweltering day in a backyard oasis and had loads of fun playing with these one-piece wonders.
