Want a recipe for perfect poolside loungewear? Skin-baring swimsuits and flirty lingerie go together like chilled rum and raspberries with mint leaves. Hot, yet oh-so-shivery-cool. Muddle them together, slide on some glamorous low heels and you’ve got spring’s chicest pool fashions: lingerie-inspired swimwear.
Spring’s runways were en fuego with teasing lingerie looks in both one-pieces and bikinis. It’s like the naughtiness of Hugh Hefner’s legendary Playboy Mansion lingerie parties channeled into the decorum of daytime-approved swimwear.
For example, with the new one-piece, “cut-out” trends, here’s what you get: The glimpse of a tanned, toned tummy through laddered, rectangular windows. The ripe swell of a neckline cut down to there. And the tease of a high-cut hip with just a hint of cheek. All of these are structured within the comfort of a slimming, black one-piece, evoking the glamour and sex appeal of eveningwear’s minxiest corset.
So don’t be afraid to flaunt your passion for lingerie and lace by the pool, and if things get too hot, you can always cool down in the shaded privacy of a hotel cabana.
