The #1 Bathing Suit Color for Summer, According to J.Crew's Swim Designer

When it comes to swimsuit shopping, why wing it when you could be armed with tips from a bona fide expert? For pointers on what to keep in mind when buying your new bathing suit, we consulted Amy Romanowsky, J.Crew’s head swim designer.

According to Romanowsky, if there’s one color you should buy for summer, it’s white. It may seem like a tricky hue, but she says it’s easier to wear than you think. “Yes, everyone can pull it off!” she told Who What Wear. “Just make sure the suit is lined—all of the J.Crew suits are.”

Other tips we’re taking notes on? She says scoop-back one-pieces are the number one silhouette of the season. She also has some advice on your shopping strategy: “Be courageous and try a silhouette that is new for you,” she told us. “But don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t work! There is a swimsuit out there for everyone.” And with that, you’re officially ready to make the perfect pick that will turn heads at every summer pool party.
