Runway-inspired swimwear

1. Neutral Nudes

Stripped down yet striking, nude hues in a range of tones are a current essential. They took over at Tom Ford’s men’s and women’s spring runways. Nudes are also versatile when it comes to styling, so opt for metallic sandals, a tropical maxi skirt, or fun straw bag.

The best part of this back-in old school pattern is that it comes in many varieties, meaning it's easy to work into a number of aesthetics. Small squares can be serious, while the big, bold chessboard look invokes a ‘90s club scene. Think of it as plaid’s more sophisticated cousin which can be paired with white, black, or any solid color within the design.
