So summer's here and you still haven't obtained your ideal beach body. Here's a trick: Pick a swimsuit with a slightly higher crop above the knee; it will instantly elongate your silhouette and show off your gams. And while you're at it, why not go for a quirky print, like the ones we've seen flourish in summer collections from Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, and Matthew Zink? You'll look stylish and whimsical, and you'll surely stand out in that endless sea of ill-fitting board shorts. (PS: If you're still wearing them, stop.)
