    The Bridesmaids star opted for an all-black ensemble for the Met Gala. The Balenciaga and Alexander Wang creation was business in the front, party in the back. It's a great look, but it's too plain for the Met Gala.

    Cara Delevingne

    OK, we're seriously in love with the black-and-white Stella McCartney outfit Cara Delevingne wore to the Met Gala. She paired her high-waisted white pants with a revealing black crop top and black heels. The model and Rihanna's BFF topped off the look with some soft waves and her signature eyebrows. She didn't match the theme at all, but the look is flawless.

    We rarely see singer Janelle Monae in anything but pants, but the singer took the drama up a notch by pairing her black pants and strappy heels with a blood-red Tadashi Shoji cape and an embellished white turtleneck.

    Erykah Badu

    Move over, Pharrell's hat. Erykah Badu had her hat game on point at the Met Gala. The singer paired the 10-gallon hat with wide-leg black pants, a gorgeous white coat and shoulder-grazing chandelier earrings.

    And who didn't wear the pants?

    This streaker gave the stars an eyeful when he broke through security and onto the red carpet. Who doesn't love a man in a hot-pink Speedo and gold chain? That's high fashion right there!

    Rita Ora, is that you? We almost didn't recognize the British singer in her Donna Karan Atelier antiqued matte gold sequined silk tulle gown (say that five times fast!). Her thigh-high lace-up boots completed the interesting look.

    Chanel. Dior. Valentino. Givenchy. Topshop.

    Wait, why are we mentioning a budget British brand with some of the biggest names in fashion? Kardashian little sister, Kendall Jenner, opted to wear a pale-pink gown by the British clothing brand for the 2014 Met Gala.

    And she looked absolutely gorgeous.

    The up-and-coming model paired the satin strapless hourglass gown with Tabitha Simmons shoes and Chopard jewelry. She topped off the ensemble with some beautiful, dramatic curls.

    The only problem with the tight dress? She couldn't sit!

    "[N]ope. can't sit," the reality star tweeted before hitting the red carpet.

    Jenner isn't the only celebrity to express love for Topshop: Kate Moss just released a collection for the brand. Beyoncé is also known to stock up on clothes from the shop, as are other celebs like Hailee Steinfeld, Taylor Swift, Kate Bosworth and Alexa Chung.

    David Stanwell of Solo Artists prepped the lovely Dianna Agron for last night's Met Gala, and got so inspired by her dress of choice (a sparkly black Miu Miu) that he decided to make a major change to her existing locks: "Dianna's dress inspired me to cut about four inches off of the hair into a graduated bob." The look they were going for? 1920s Parisian flapper. We're pretty sure they succeeded.

    1. Start with wet hair. Prep your locks by spraying them with Biosilk Silk Therapy and comb product through from roots to ends.
    2. Blow dry 1-inch sections of hair with a T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Dryer and a T3 Anti-Gravity 2.5" Barrel Brush. Slightly turn the ends of hair out while styling for an extra flair.
    3. Flip the ends of hair out using the T3 SinglePass 1-inch Straightening & Styling Iron.
    4. Set your pin curls around the top of your head with the T3 BodyWaver 1.75-inch Styling Iron.
    5. After all the curls have cooled, remove your pins and set the look by gently running your fingers throughout the hair.
    6. Now it's time to finish the 'do. Spray Biosilk Finishing Spray, Firm Hold to give long-lasting hold.

    We're always excited to see what the lovely Blake Lively will do with her hair and makeup at any red carpet event and last night, our anticipation was a bit higher than usual with the Met Gala. Lucky for us, Blake didn't disappoint. The actress hit the carpet with her best accessory (hubby Ryan Reynolds) in a metallic Gucci gown that hugged her curves in all the right places. To complement the gown, her hairstylist Rod Ortega of Solo Artists created what he described as a "modern day take on [a] Joan Crawford Victory Roll" hairstyle for Blake.

    Get the look

    1. Start your look with wet hair. Use the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Dryer and T3 Anti-Gravity 2.5-inch Barrel Brush to create texture and movement while blow drying your locks. These two products will also give your roots a nice boost.
    2. After you've dried your hair, start at the nape of the neck and curl locks with the T3 1.25-inch SinglePass Twirl Curling Iron. After curling, finger-roll each section into a pin curl. Expert tip: To avoid nasty tangles, start from the nape of the neck working up to the top.
    3. Once pin curls are set and cooled, flip your hair over and create deep waves by brushing with the T3 Paddle Brush. After doing so, flip the hair back up and brush from your part down to the roots.
    4. Now it's time to add a little spray. Hit locks with a light hold hairspray but keep your touch light so locks are still light and have movement.
    5. On the side where you deep parted your hair, take a small section of hair from the front and roll the hair around your finger, working toward the back and finishing up behind the ear. Secure this small section with bobby pins to create what Rod calls a "Joan Crawford-esque" Victory Roll on one side of your head.
    6. Finish the look off with a coating of light hold hairspray.

    When Charlize Theron steps onto a red carpet, she typically turns heads, and last night's Met Gala was no different. The actress and Dior spokesperson arrived to fashion's big night with beau Sean Penn on her arm wearing a strapless black and white Dior (of course) gown.

    Charlize has been a member of the "short hair, don't care" club for some time now, and last night she opted to wear her grown-out pixie sleek and shiny. Inspired by Charles James, celebrity hairstylist Enzo Angileri styled Charlize, transforming her into a glam version of a Charles James model: "He was at the peak in the '40s so I looked at his work and tried to modernize it in a way that screamed 'Charlize Theron.' She is her own woman — so beautiful and romantic, with a bit of an edge," Angileri says. "The hair had the height of a '40s style, but the methodical 'messiness' of the curls was 100 percent Charlize. I didn't over style her — instead, I created a balance between hair and makeup."

    1. Start off by washing and conditioning the hair with Davines NOUNOU Shampoo and Conditioner.
    2. With hair still wet, apply a generous amount of Davines This Is A Volume Boosting Mousse to create texture and movement.
    3. Now, blow dry locks with a medium round brush and straighten out just a touch of your natural curls (if you have them).
    4. After hair is completely dry, add texture with This Is A Medium Hold Finishing Gum. Make sure you warm the gum between the palms of your hands before applying, then work it into hair to create nice hold.
    5. To add a special extra shine, take a bit of Davines OI Beautifying Oil between your fingers and move it through the tips of hair.
    6. Complete your look with Davines This Is An Invisible No Gas Spray.

    This year's "White Tie & Decorations" Met Gala theme was inspired by Charles James, so celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler (for Moroccanoil) molded actress Claire Danes' hair into a soft updo to complement her strapless Oscar de la Renta gown. The hairstyle itself was inspired by Charles James’ iconic haute couture evening gowns, and is actually pretty easy to recreate yourself. Find out how.

    1. Start with damp hair and apply Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse from root to tip to get great crown volume and overall bounce.
    2. Blow dry your hair using Moroccanoil Boar Bristle Brush 35mm and your blow dryer of choice.
    3. Now it's time to curl. Use a 1.5-inch barrel iron to curl 1-inch sections around the entire head. Before doing so, make sure to apply Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection to each section to protect locks and keep hair shiny and healthy.
    4. After curls have cooled, create a deep side part and finger comb hair into a super low ponytail, keeping hair loose (not taut). Secure your ponytail with an elastic.
    5. Now, wrap your entire ponytail into a knot, pulling the end of the ponytail through. Tuck the end under and secure the entire knot with pins.
    6. Finish off your look by lightly pulling out face-framing pieces and spritzing with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine.

    Mary-Kate

    Inspiration: To complement Mary-Kate's vintage Ferre dress, Mark created a classic, yet modern look.

    1. To create Mary-Kate’s slicked back look, Mark mixed unrefined coconut oil with 20 drops of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Treatment in a bowl and applied the blend to her hair from root to tip. The result? Mary-Kate actually got a conditioning treatment while she walked the red carpet.
    2. After he applied the treatment, Mark took Mary-Kate's hair and pulled it into a low bun, securing the 'do with a few bobby pins.

    Fun fact: Mary-Kate usually asks Mark to use 5 hair pins or less, but for last night's Met Gala she let him use 10.

    Ashley

    Inspiration: Ashley stepped out in vintage Chanel last night, and Mark wanted her hair to be "sleek, shiny, and effortlessly chic!"

    Get the look

    1. Start your look by adding a few drops of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Treatment to damp hair, then blow dry with a round brush.
    2. After blow drying, gather hair into a low ponytail and secure with an elastic.
    3. Since you're going for a sleek ponytail look, spray Oribe Soft Lacquer hairspray on a reusable mascara wand and run it through hair on the hairline and above the ears.
    4. Finish off your look and add extra shine by spritzing your entire head with Sally Hershberger Salon Smooth Fix.

    Fun fact: To add contrast to Ashley's blonde locks, Mark tied a velvet ribbon around the base of her ponytail. This was actually Ashley's idea.

    Why we're obsessed

    Glam meets Cali cool style in this effortlessly polished going out look. Somehow, Kourtney manages to look comfy, chic and totally put together thanks to a mix of neutrals.

    How to style the look

    A neutral leather jacket seems to add instant pizzazz to any outfit. A collarless one? Even better. Throw one over a no fuss tee to keep your cool girl factor and pair with white jeans for a mostly monochromatic look that's anything but vanilla.

    Model wearing cutout swimsuit
    Photo credit: Arun Nevader/WireImage/Getty Images

    While the cut-out "one-piece" bathing suit isn’t entirely a new trend, it’s apparently not going anywhere and someone’s got to deal with it head on. Truth be told, when I was 8 years old, I had a swimsuit like this: neon pink and green, with both sides cut out to reveal a little 8-year-old belly. And just like that, you have the only example of when I would be caught dead wearing one of these.

    Besides the obvious — that the cut-outs reveal women’s danger zones — I feel like the only type of person behind these hideous designs could be a man. First, because the whole glory of having the option to go from two piece to one piece is the promise of more coverage. So don’t say "the one piece is back" and then show me a shredded piece of material that might barely cover my unmentionables.

    I like to imagine the brainstorm meeting where this item was developed.

    "Ok, Jenkins, what do you have?"

    "Well, sir, the guys and I have been thinking... and what if we took those boring, modest one-piece swimsuits and just cut a bunch of weird designs, all willy nilly, until it sort of looked like bikini art and it’s less a one piece and more like a bikini."

    "BRAVO, JENKINS, BRAVO!"

    Cutout swimsuits

    Now, in all fairness, some of them, like this Deep V Halter style, offer most of the coverage of a traditional one piece, and only reveal a pretty universal hot spot: the cleavage. I can live with that. I can maybe even put my vote behind a backless one. Maybe.

    But the side cut-outs and the front cut-outs? That is like having a spotlight follow you around the beach all day to point out your least favorite body parts. Unless, that is, it’s a high front cut-out, using the ‘crop top, high-waisted bottoms rule, like this beauty. I’ll allow that.

    And sure, celebrities look amazing in these (doy.) Sure, my teenage niece probably looks fine in them. But for the average woman? I cry foul.

    Or at least, I cry, "Don’t call it a one-piece, you monsters."

    Still looking for your perfect shade? It may be as close as your printer.

    When Grace Choi was a student at Harvard Business School, she came up with the idea for a mini 3-D printer — the Mink — that lets people print their own makeup.

    Yes, you heard that — print your own makeup.

    She spoke at TechCrunch Disrupt this week, explaining that beauty companies "charge a huge premium on something that tech provides for free. That one thing is color."

    Choi said that all beauty products — high-end and low-end goods — have the same base ingredients, known as substrates, which enable anyone to print out their own makeup. The technology is available on everything from powders to cream to lipstick.

    Choi said that because color printers are available to everyone and the ink they use is the same as that used in makeup products (and FDA approved), everyone should be able to create their own colors. The device hooks into a regular computer and printer.

    Here's how Mink works: First, users will choose a color that they want, using the color picker to copy the hex code of the color. Then, users will paste the hex code into a new document using Photoshop or Microsoft Paint. It then has pods of makeup in the machine and prints that color into the makeup. The tins can go into a pre-made compact that enables women to store them and take the makeup on the go.

    "You don’t have to spend any money or resources on actually getting the makeup, and the price per unit is going to be around the same as mass retailers, but with the most color options of any brand in the world," she said at the event.

    "The most important thing out of all of this is that this is going to finally train our girls to understand that the definition of beauty is something that they should be able to control… not our corporations," she added.

    While Choi still has a long way to go to bring the product to market, it’s kind of cool to know that we may soon have more control over the colors we choose — and the makeup we wear.

    You're gorgeous, and so is your smile. These easy makeup tips are a way to showcase one of your best features.

    1

    Dust on bronzer

    Giving yourself some shine with bronzer will not only give you a sunkissed glow, it will make the whites of your teeth really pop.

    2

    Apply blue-toned lip gloss

    When you use a cool-toned lip gloss, it will give the illusion that your teeth are much whiter than they appear. This is because your teeth are also a cool-toned shade and when the two shades are next to each other, the lip gloss frames your pearly whites to make them appear brighter.

    3

    Create a red lip

    Not into lip gloss? Try a blue-toned red lipstick instead. It'll create the same effect. The contrast of your rouge lips and white teeth will make your choppers appear brighter than ever. And for long-lasting red lips, try a lip stain.

    4

    Widen your lashes

    Bring all the attention to your eyes with full lashes. Choose a mascara that will add a lot of volume to them. Make sure to apply the mascara to the lashes on the outer edges of your eyes. Having those curve up will make your eyes appear wider and, in turn, your smile brighter.

    5

    Add color to your cheeks

    Bring life to your face with some blush. Rosy cheeks will liven up the color in your face, make you look beautifully flushed and allow the whites of your teeth to shine.

    6

    Define your eyebrows

    Draw attention to your amazing eyebrows. Properly define your brows by either getting them waxed or investing in a brow pencil and brush. When your eyebrows are nicely shaped, your face is properly framed. So now, when you smile, it's not only your beautiful teeth that will shine — your brows will say hello, world.

    Take care of your teeth

    The ultimate best way to brighten your smile is to properly take care of your teeth. Make sure you're taking great care of your smile by choosing a great toothbrush, like ARM & HAMMER™ Spinbrush™ Truly Radiant™. Use whitening toothpaste and mouthwash if you can.

    Kate Mara's bobby pin hairstyle

    For those of us gals who are quite lazy with our beauty routine, the wet hair look is always a welcome trend. If you're a bit skeptical about the style and want to avoid looking sloppy, though, Kate Mara is showing us the perfect way to rock sleek, wet locks while still keeping things high fashion (hint: It involves loads of bobby pins). Moroccanoil’s Artistic Director, Antonio Corral Calero, was kind enough to share his tips for scoring Kate's sleek style. Have fun styling, ladies!

    Get the look

    "This is an easy hairstyle that uses bobby pins in a clever way; the key here is to have fun and be creative with the accessories," Antonio says.

    1. For the perfect foundation, apply the Moroccanoil Treatment on damp hair. It will make strands sleek and shiny and easier to manage.
    2. Create a deep side part parallel to mid-eyebrow and begin blow drying 2-inch sections using the Moroccanoil Classic Boar Bristle Brush. Work from the back of the hair to the front.
    3. After drying, apply the Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream from root to mid-shaft. This will control frizz as well as add light texture and hold.
    4. The key part to this hairstyle is the way that the pins are placed. Brush the hair smooth in a backward direction and place the bobby pins in a crisscrossed pattern — interlocking each X — from ear to ear.
    5. Tame flyaways and secure the style with a fine mist of the Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray.

    Friday's Fashion Obsessions: Mindy Kaling and Katharine McPhee

    Mindy Kaling

    This week, Mindy Kaling showed off her adorable sense of style at an event in New York City in a vibrant pink dress that's got us itching for a trip to the mall.

    Get Mindy's look

    When in doubt, always wear pink. At least, that's our motto, and it seems to be working in Mindy's favor here. Her short sleeve dress featured a tulip skirt with beautiful draping and a simply perfect hue of pink, and Mindy kept her accessories minimal so her statement dress could really pop. She did incorporate one pièce de résistance, though: those flirty pumps. Seriously, could they be any more adorable? Mindy looks polished, pretty and professional.

    The final verdict? Mindy finished off her look with soft waves and glowing skin for an overall stunning look.

    Katharine McPhee

    Katharine McPhee basically made our style dreams come true when she showed up to an event in Washington D.C. rocking this mint green jumpsuit by Rebecca Minkoff.

    Shop the look: Vince Camuto Jumpsuit (amazon.com, $118)

    Mint green and jumpsuits? Those are two of our favorite things. Katharine's sleeveless version featured a beautifully draped subtle V-neck, a tailored fit and a super flattering mid-section (something that's not easy to find in jumpsuits). She accessorized with black ankle strap sandals, a cream clutch and a subtle bracelet. To complement the warm weather vibe of her jumpsuit, Katharine wore her locks in beachy waves, selected a pop of color lip and accentuated her cheekbones with a rosy glow.

    The final verdict? Could Katharine look any more perfect? We think not. The fit, the color and the feel of this jumpsuit are just simply spot-on.

    British surgeons have developed an experimental new procedure that places a hardened silicone cup under the skin of each breast and then uses silk straps to bolt the cups to the rib cage with titanium screws, like an internal bra.

    What I want to know is who are these ladies who want to wear a bra 24-7? As a mom who has birthed five kids, I'd love it if the girls just faced forward, much less looked perky, so I can see the allure — and yet is there anything more delightful than coming home after a long day and ditching the Playtex for pajamas? So what if your double D's get a little droopy — that's just what breasts do.

    Plus having two "hardened silicone cups" under my skin seems like it might hurt — a reasonable fear says Dr. Eugene Elliott, a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon at Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center in Fountain Valley, California. "In my experience anything stiff enough to be supportive would likely be very uncomfortable, especially if you ever wanted to lie on your stomach," he says. Not to mention the pain of having titanium screws drilled into your rib cage — a pain he says would be like having your ribs cracked... times 10.

    What we really need to talk about though is the nasty issue of extrusion. Apparently there's a real risk of the pressure of daily wear and tear forcing the cups out through your skin. If you thought it was bad when you missed a button and flashed your bra at the office, imagine what an impression you'd make if your bra actually popped out of your skin.

    So far the surgery has only been performed on three women and the device hasn't been approved by the FDA. Even when a surgical technique is proven and performed under ideal circumstances, there are still risks and those are amplified for experimental procedures like this that haven't undergone any clinical testing or studies yet.

    And all this for what — to achieve the look of perfectly perky bra-free breasts? Why not just wear a normal bra that you can take off when you want to? This seems like just one more way that women are being told that the normal state of our breasts — from time, childbirth or genetics — is wrong.

    Women's breasts aren't meant to face forward and stand at attention all the time. Even the Victoria's Secret Angels get to take off their bras and relax.

    Forever21
    Photo credit: Andrew Burton/Getty Images News/Getty Images

    On Saturday, an 18,000-square-foot store will open in South Gate, California, boasting items like $2 tanks and $8 jeans.

    You know what the color red usually signals? Pump the breaks.

    I’m probably not alone in being guilty of shopping at Forever 21 here and there (I mean, sometimes you just can’t pass up a $9 clutch for that last-minute date), but can you possibly fathom garments that are cheaper than their current lineup?

    And I of course don’t just mean the price. The craftsmanship (a generous word) of these pieces must be hitting an all-time low in order to pump out clothing that can sell at these prices. Not to mention the issues about who is making them and what they’re getting paid.

    Granted, F21 Red is probably aimed at tweens with an allowance. They probably don’t really care whether or not a 30-year-old is interested in what they’re offering. To put it in terms that their target demo will never understand: Contempo Casuals is probably rolling in their grave right now.

    Don’t get me wrong though. I may be almost a decade too old to shop at Forever 21, but I might have to put on a trench coat and sunglasses and pop into a F21 Red store near me to see what they’re up to. Hey, maybe I'll snag an ill-fitting dress that will cost less than I'll pay to park and might make it through one wash if I sell my soul or something.

    Your move, Charlotte Russe.

    Deodorant

    You never know when you're going to sweat. It can be when you've got a presentation coming up or when you've got to talk to your boss about something important to you. So to stay fresh, make sure you always have deodorant on hand for stinky situations. We like ARM & HAMMER™ Essentials Solid Deodorant in Unscented.

    2

    Oil blotting sheets

    Whether you've been in and out of meetings nonstop or have been sitting at your desk all day, oil will build up on your face. Keep a pack of oil-absorbing sheets at your desk so your skin can look and feel fresh throughout the day.

    3

    Travel floss

    Nothing is more embarrassing than talking to a coworker while you have food stuck in your teeth. Keep a small pack of floss with you. Most people are usually afraid to tell someone when they have food stuck in their choppers, so make this your personal responsibility. You'll want to have the floss for those times your delicious lunch remains in your pearly whites.

    4

    Bobby pins

    Want to pin your hair up or keep a pesky piece out of your face? Make sure you have some bobby pins. There's so much you can do to your hair with just a couple pins. But your hair is just the beginning of how you can use bobby pins. Don’t have that floss? Use a bobby pin as a toothpick to get that piece of food out your teeth.

    5

    All-purpose moisture stick

    If your hands and lips tend to get dry during the day, reach for an all-purpose moisture stick. This way, you won't have to buy two separate items: lip balm and lotion. You can use the moisture stick on any part of your body. It's all you need.

    6

    Tiny dry shampoo bottle

    Freshen up your hair in a jiffy with some dry shampoo. This spray will absorb any oil in your hair and give your strands the boost they need to look alive. Use it in the middle of the day and/or at the end of the day before you head out to after-work drinks or dinner.

    7

    Lipstick

    Perhaps you've been called into an impromptu meeting with some important people at your company. Have lipstick on hand so you can instantly glam up your day look. You’ll look like you're ready to take on anything. It’s also great to have extra lipstick at work because your lip color is bound to fade during the day. Re-applying to your lip will keep your pout looking fresh.

    Turns out, you're in luck! There are plenty of cute suits out there for those of us who like to, you know, actually swim at the beach. The beach and the pool are about more than just tanning and looking cute. Swimming is incredible exercise, so make the most of that and choose a swimsuit with some staying power. Here are our eight picks for fashionable, swimmable one- and two-piece suits.

    1. Underwire one-piece

    1. Underwire One-Piece

    Despite what advertisers would have you believe, we are not all rocking A-cups. An underwire provides support that's typically absent from the average flimsy bathing suit. If you've got a lot going on up top, choose a suit with more substantial coverage. This one from Miraclesuit is sexy and will stay up when you get knocked down by a huge wave (Nordstrom, $154).

    2. Athletic zip-up

    2. Athletic Zip-up

    So maybe you don't want to sacrifice style for a full-on wetsuit, but that doesn't mean you're willing to bare it all in a teeny bikini. This half-sleeve rash guard with raglan sleeves is not only super cute, it comes with 50+ UV protection, protecting your shoulders from the sun. Rock it over your bathing suit for extra coverage, or pair it with a bralette (Lime Ricki, $41).

    3. Racerback two-piece

    3. Racerback Two-Piece

    Who says a designer bikini can't also be practical? Athletic girls like to have fun too, and this two-piece from Juicy Couture hits two birds with one very trendy stone — a sports-y look from the full-coverage top and bold black piping, with a sweet baby blue shade that's high on style (Bloomingdale's, $124).

    4. Trendy rashguard

    4. Trendy Rashguard

    When you hear "rashguard," you probably think of surfers. If you are one, you might reconsider your typical board-wear. Take this colorful long-sleeved one-piece, for instance. There is no way this thing will slide even an inch out of place while you're riding the waves, and the sherbet color scheme will draw extra attention to your cool moves (ModCloth, $73).

    5. Sailor stripes

    5. Sailor Stripes

    Like a Petit Bateau T-shirt but in rashguard form. If you want to move effortlessly from a poolside luncheon to a power swim, this is a great top. Pair with plain bikini bottoms for an effortlessly styled swim look that will look just as good after you swim. Who says that the only sexy bathing suits are the ones that reveal a lot of skin (J. Crew, $78)?

    6. Tankini

    6. Tankini

    Ah, the tankini. Don't try and tell me you didn't own one of these back in middle school, because I sure did. This black option by Gottex is all grown up, but definitely not dull. Just look at that mesh detailing and plunging back! You'll have no trouble executing a perfect butterfly stroke in this outfit (Bloomingdale's, $136).

    7. Mesh cut-outs

    7. Mesh Cut-outs

    Cut-outs are in. Zip-up swimsuits are in. Fitness is in. All three converge on this navy blue one-piece with mesh cut-outs on the waist and at the bosom and a zip front to hold you in place. Sure, you run the risk of some weird tan lines, but since you'll be wearing plenty of sunscreen, you shouldn't let that stop you (Urban Outfitters, $265).

    8. Swim shirt

    8. Swim shirt

    Maybe bathing suits aren't really your thing but you love to swim. Maybe you need to dress to impress. Either way, this Mara Hoffman rashguard is practical but will look great whether you're in your own backyard or doing a swan dive off the board on a fancy vacay. With a pattern that pretty, you'll hate to put it away at the end of the summer (Anthropologie, $148).
