Australian label Zimmermann appeals to the beach bunny with a city girl’s sensibility. This old school one-piece is full-coverage modest but, thanks to come-hither details like nude mesh paneling and total back reveal, it’s modern-stylish. And low-key sultry enough to incite the desire for a beach vacation – or at least the urge to take in a rooftop pool party. With a fab floral print and a polished halter-top, throw on a high-waisted skirt and you can head straight to lunch. You hardly even need a skirt; this poolside equivalent of a cocktail dress is almost an outfit in itself. For the chick who pairs high heels with her swimwear and is more about lounging than doing laps – my kind of girl! On Net-a-Porter for $270.
Pair with: A heel that’s high but not high-maintenance. Nothing sexy about a stiletto stuck in the sand! Jean-Michel Cazabat’s “Zesta” wedge espadrilles in tan with stretchy criss-cross straps are a breeze to pull on and off. On ShopBop for $295.
