Bathing suits with skirts are almost always terrible. We suspect the women who wear them are hoping that little scrap of ruffled fabric will hide what nature has given them a bit too much of, but the result is generally the least flattering outfit imaginable. This Marc by Marc Jacobs Finch-Print Peplum Maillot ($182) makes a valiant attempt at reclaiming the skirted suit, and we think it might just pull it off. Sure, the cute skirt detail doesn't hide a darned thing. But did you notice those low-cut leg openings? That's right: full rear coverage. It's the old bait-and-switch, and we're all for it.
