What: Vitamin A Swimwear
Why: I dread the onset of swimsuit season like an outbreak of Ebola virus. Sometimes, after one too many vodka sodas, I find myself muttering unintelligably about the wisdom of a "swim-burka." But, this season I discovered a line of suits whose adorable styles, bright colors, and innate cool soften the blow of exposing my pale, pale thighs to the beach-going public. Vitamin A swimwear by Amahlia Stevens has long been a secret of stylists and celebs (celeb fans of the line include Ashlee Simpson, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Aniston, and Lauren Conrad)- coveted for its jet-set sensibility and luxury approach to the West Coast Vibe. With metallic hardware, reversible suits, chic, minimalist cuts, and shimmering linings, you might still hate your thighs… but your suit will be hot!
