Ahhhhh swimsuit season! It’s finally upon us, and whether or not you’re ready, the crashing waves are calling. We had to take advantage of the California sun, the palm trees, and the vibrant colors specifically around Venice, and nothing felt more appropriate than the graphic trend happening within swim: white trims!

It reminds me of a one-piece I had as a kid – which is possibly why I feel such a connection to them, like a distant memory brought back into my adult life. The idea of white trim or piping is brilliant for swim when you think about it…

– Adds that little bit of white one needs to make a tan really pop without having to do a full white suit (which as I can tell you first-hand, is sometimes, well, a bit transparent)

– Gives a nod to the mod stylings of the 1960’s, sans feeling like you also have to sport a flower swim cap

– Makes you feel sporty. Like you could jump on a racing yacht at any moment and fit right in

I dig it – and we thought we’d share a few of our favorites on our new friend Kate!
