For being such a fashion fiend, I don't have that many bathing suits. I don't blame myself for my lack of swimwear; I blame swimsuit designers. So many bathing suits look like clones of one another; they're either triangle top, skimpy, tacky — or all of the above.
When Urban Outfitters announced its retro swim collection, I breathed a sigh of relief. I can finally invest in demure, girlie swimwear that doesn't make me look like I'm trying to shove my body in the face of the world. There are so many to pick from, but one of my favorites is this Lux Lollipop Floral Swimsuit ($98) because it's inexpensive and has darling cap sleeves.
