The Controversial Swim Trend I'm So Into Right Now

Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour

If I were to write a short list of clothing items that scare me, somewhere after super-tight dresses and maybe before uncomfortable shoes and white jeans, you’d find white bathing suits. I don’t particularly love wearing bathing suits in the first place (but buy them anyway), so if you take a category that already makes me uncomfortable and choose a white (aka nowhere-to-hide) iteration, I’m downright petrified. It’s kind of how my former co-worker Aemilia feels about another popular swim trend.

Nonetheless, you can imagine my confusion when I suddenly noticed how many of my favorites suits were actually white. Maybe seeing so many of them (after all, they are having a moment) was like a form of exposure therapy, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t end up ordering a couple while researching for stories.

Will I end up channeling my inner Sofia Richie this summer? Only time will tell, but for now, you can shop all the nicest white bikinis and one-pieces I have my eyes on below, and see how some of my other favorite stylish women are pulling them off along the way.
