The Controversial Swim Trend I'm So Into Right Now

If I were to write a short list of clothing items that scare me, somewhere after super-tight dresses and before uncomfortable shoes and white jeans, you'd find white swimsuits. I don't particularly love wearing swimsuits in the first place (but buy them anyway), so if you take a category that already makes me uncomfortable and choose a white, nowhere-to-hide iteration, I'm downright petrified. It's kind of how my co-worker Maxine feels about another popular swim trend.

Nonetheless, you can imagine my confusion when I suddenly noticed how many of my favourites suits were actually white. Maybe seeing so many of them (after all, they are having a moment) helped, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't end up ordering a couple while researching for stories.

Will I end up channeling my inner Sofia Richie this summer? Only time will tell, but for now, you can shop all the nicest white bikinis and one-pieces I have my eyes on below and see how some of my other favourite stylish women are pulling them off along the way.

This could definitely double as a top.

If you want to get Sofia's exact look, this bikini is the place to start.

Vix Swimwear has elevated a classic triangle bikini with beautiful bead details. 

This take on cutouts that we have been calling "negative space" is so on trend.

The low v-neckline is accentuated by the pom-pom details.
