Is it just us, or are these models… Happy? Though we’d be smiling too if it were our limbs being given a physical preview of Nanette Lepore’s porcelain printed pool pants. FYI this is a term we just made up, because though we’re seeing interestingly printed swimsuits in every nook of the internet these days, there’s been a serious shortage of poolside trouserwear.
Nanette Lepore’s Swim 2014 range is evidence that this needs to change. We’re all for kaftans of the brightly printed and luxuriously silky variety, but there’s just something about lounging poolside in what are essentially a pair of glamorized trackies in the same print as your nana’s teacups.
We’re also not opposed to a good rashie. Tan lines are so last season, and these cropped ones promise not only the illusion of surfing chops but the ability to function as a bona fide shirt. We’ve long been pro sartorial multitasking, as well as perpetual suckers for anything that might get us in the good books of Crop Top Queen Jennifer Lawrence.
