Suit Up!

by CARSON GRIFFITH · July 10, 2009

[Photo via Shop Intuition] We figured this eccentrically adorable little number by Perini could serve as a lesson in good suits gone bad. If you take it for face value, this suit is a nice twist on the ever popular over-sized bow trend, by taking it front and center, and adding chocolate trim to the green bikini. With some long tassle ties at the side, we're not quite sure how practical they may be, but they certainly add something extra. The issue at hand is the makers of the suit offer the wearer the "reversible" option. While this may seem practical (two suits for the price of one!), we'd like to stick a big fat BUYER BEWARE sticker on this suit if that's the only reason you're going in for the purchase...

Even though we're fans of the sweetly gift-wrapped-like suit in green, we're going to have to opt out of the reversed brown version. The color blocking, the lines, the fit - it's hard to believe it's the same suit once you get the thing on inside out. So while usually we are all for anything that gives you a little extra bang for your buck, keep the thing on the original way - even if it means washing it an extra time or two.
