Strong Boalt's Palm Beach Preppy Swimwear
We've been pining for the beach for the past couple of weeks, and swimwear company Strong Boalt's summer lookbook just made our cabin fever even that more unbearable. The prepped-out, sexy, and summery shots are totally Lily Pulitzer-meets-Vilbrequin-meets-Saturday's Surf NYC, with a vintage, Cali-cool aesthetic that's putting us in a mood for an uber strong gimlet. The vibe is both a lil' bit Brett Easton Ellis-ey and a tad Cruel Intentions, with swim trunks for dudes that are bright and fun, with patterns like palm tress, sea fan coral, and lemons. It's only natural then that designer Amanda Strong Boalt was born and raised in Palm Beach and the Caribbean before moving to the Big Apple's LES—we can see these suits working equally well on Jones Beach and at the Breakers. So guys, pack up an L.L. Bean tote: You know you'll be rocking these to some Vampire Weekend tracks come Memorial Day weekend.
