Whites for Summer

White swimsuits have been catching my eye and this shorts/bikini top combination is one of the prettiest that I’ve seen in a while.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the actress Isabel Lucas has impossibly long legs and is lit in a way that recalls a Slim Aarons photograph, with a touch of vintage Polaroid (love that blue-green sky and sea that meets the sand . . .).

It also reminds of Alaia’s work with eyelet, and I’m remembering (or imagining) Naomi Campbell in a two-piece set from the early 1990s that’s not dissimilar. Here’s a more recent look at Alaia’s cutout work:

This white bathing suit from T Travel Magazine completes my cloud-like cluster. Love its high waist.

I love the retro styling of the Vanity Fair cover. I would totally wear that....even though I don't have legs a mile long.

I loved that high-waisted 2 piece from last week's T Mag. Beautiful.

I think those retro bathing suits are always flattering.
