We dove into the depths of Vogue’s archive, seeking chic examples of ‘Devil-May-Care Swimwear’. When we finally resurfaced we’d seen all kinds of outlandish creations and plenty that we wanted to share. But, in the interest of saving you eyes from meltdown, we’ve chosen a few of our favourites and included them below for you to peruse. Just remember, whether you’re lying supine at the poolside or dancing wildly in the surf, these suits are of such high quality, having been dreamed up by such high-class designers, that they’re pretty much guaranteed to make you stand out. These aren’t made for shy wallflowers. So prepare yourself, we’re about to bring you a quick, diverse burst, featuring everything from black retro swimsuits to blooming zip-suits… this is our pick of the best swimwear for this summer:
First, here’s an undeniable knock-out – it’s the curvaceous blonde bombshell, Kate Upton, sporting a Striped Zip Swimsuit for Vogue’s June 2014 Issue, taken by Alexa Chung.
Julia Stegner models a classic Black Button-strapped Swimsuit in a marble pool, taken by Norbert Schoerner for British Vogue in June 2007.
The wonderful Doutzen Kroes is seen here modelling a glittering Bejeweled Summer Swimsuit for the June cover shoot in Vogue China – taken by Sølve Sundsbø.
