SEEMS AS though British Vogue hit the mark with their Kate Upton neoprene swimwear spread (not that I ever doubted the ability of Vogue to identify fashion trends). It's all the more convincing now that online retailer Shopbop is heavily featuring the throwback style in their summer 2014 lookbook, starring 2014 SI Swimsuit Rookie Bregje Heinen.
The neon-and-zipper-happy style is a bold trend, and I have yet to see evidence of a normal person pulling it off, so I'll probably play it safe this summer and stick with what I know: the indoors and the AC. But don't let me stop you from trying!
