There Will Be Suits

Countless people across the nation seethe in jealousy of Charlestonians during the summertime. While many dream of days spent at the beach, those who live within the Holy City’s walls actually live at the beach. Anywhere on the peninsula, a beach is only minutes away, whether it’s Folly, Sully’s, IOP, Wild Dunes, Kiawah, etc. With all that at our fingertips, we simply are some of the most fortunate folk, aren’t we?

Though, indubitably, we each have an immense amount of bathing suits/bikinis, there’s never any harm in buying more. The hottest beachwear trend this season (for women) is to sport a sexy one-piece, a retro suit in which less (skin) truly is more (sophisticated). Long gone are the days of the “Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini” and even further are those of the “Thong Song,” so spend this season rocking the hottest trend and making the Holy City proud.

This look would be perfect to sport on any Holy City beach. Try it in the playful yellow or the sophisticated black. The cute polka-dots add a wholesome touch to this sexy suit.

Urban Outfitters, $98

This suit is reminicent of one Marilyn Monroe would have sported back in the day. It hugs and accentuates the curves, while remaining comfortable.

Anthropologie, $158

Okay, honestly, we aren’t going to look like Victoria’s Secret models when we hit the beach. But this beaut would look fab on any Holy City lovely, an elegant yet sexy approach to the one-piece suit that any confident fashionista could pull off.

Victoria’s Secret, $117

Another fab Vic suit. This one just screams classic Bond girl to me, before the days of the ever-trashy Denise Richards, voted worst Bond girl ever.

Victoria’s Secret, $51.99

This J. Crew looker comes in several different colors, though I far prefer this “Brilliant Blue” color, which would look vibrant and breathtaking against all skin tones.

J. Crew, $80

Oh, and while you’re at it, cover-up your fabulous new suit with this ridiculously awesome cover-up.

Anthropologie, $88
