Everything you need for pool prep
Unless you were lucky enough to spend the holidays in Hawaii or celebrate the start of spring with a long weekend in Miami, you’re probably in need of a new swimsuit. The key to nabbing the best beach or pool wear is to shop early. If you wait, you’ll be left trying to match the unmatchable separates left hanging by a halter on a picked-over rack, or worse, shimmying into a chic one-piece that’s just one size too small. To help inspire swimsuit shopping (because sometimes all we need is a little push), we’ve rounded up some of the best looks to be found around town.
