Dive into the minimalism trend with Maria Cornejo's simple swimsuits

Think to iconic swimwear moments, be they Bond Girls, Bo Derek or Gidget. What do they all have in common? Sleek suiting with a lack of fuss — no tricky embellishment or frenetic patterns. Just perfect fits in clear colours, best accessorized with a capsule of Vitamin-D. Zero + Maria Cornejo (a label known for colour-blocked minimalist essentials and MObama fave) offers a splashy new collection for lounging pool-side. In stingray-black and blue, the new bikini is instantly modern, yet would never date, while the paneled one-piece is the final word in stark swimwear. Both styles would look plenty glamorous with a major floppy hat and rouge lips come cocktail hour. Or, if watersports and beach frolics are more your speed, they would easily give a round of volleyball or surf lesson a jolt of style. The choice is yours.

Zero + Maria Cornejo one-piece, $299 and bikini, $149 for each piece. At Jonathan + Olivia in Toronto, 416-849-5956.
