On city-appropriate (or not) bathing suit wearing
On the second warm day of spring (lest you forget, I spent the first one wearing underwear as pants), I wanted to try something out. Piggy backing off the new-ish predilection I uncovered for suiting earlier the previous season, I felt like transporting that cue into the new season. And in spite of the obvious fact that a grey and white cotton suit could probably do that on its own (call it a summer appropriate nod to Beetlejuice infused by that magic Swedish potion indigenous to Acne), I commissioned the help of a brand new one piece bathing suit aptly equipped with stationary green flamingos to pay slight homage to last summer’s Bikini in The City video but also consummate this marriage of suit and summer.
Conclusion: While I really appreciate what vertical stripes do for my FUPA and the fact that even as I maintain an A-cup chest, my knockers could look…depressed, I would definitely never wear this out if not for the sake of a blog post/experiment. In becoming better acquainted with the suit, I’ve learned these pants need height in heel formation and that the bathing suit, though dynamic and hip and with it and obviously ready to dance, needs a pool–plain and simple.
So why am I even showing these photos to you, right? Wrong. I see no problem sharing the trial and error process especially because I fuck it up really, really often. And because I tell people that to achieve a good outfit, it is sometimes advisable to pair three of your favorite garments together (which is essentially what I’ve done here), it was important to document the time that didn’t work. But make no mistake–this is my mistake, that is not a testament to the clothes themselves. In any case, what do you think of this look?
