Suit Up!

woven swimwear from missoniI'm not really feeling this one. Missoni is cool in a 70's Italian film star/privileged hippy way, and Margherita nearly always makes it look good, but I just don't think string bikinis should be literal. For one thing, you can't swim in them -the tag even advises against it, and for another, unless you have a rock hard or prepubescent body, they aren't all that flattering. This model has a great body and the suit kind of ruins it. Plus a copious amount of dangling brown yarn is never a good idea.
