These three fashion designers have the look.

Emelie von Hofsten

While visiting her boyfriend last year in Beijing, Emelie von Hofsten, a Stockholm-based actress, hired a local tailor to make some clothes for her, including a slim-leg version of the jumpsuit her mother used to wear to Studio 54. The response from friends, who were all clamoring for one, motivated her to launch Teotoki, a line of chic all-in-ones that she sells at Teotoki.se. “They work on every body type,” says von Hofsten, who serves as her own best model. “And I love that I can wear one with flats during the day, and then dress it up with vintage earrings and Alaïa heels for night.”

Lisa Marie Fernandez

Whether dressed in a vintage caftan or high-waist trousers and a turtleneck, this jet-setting swimsuit and activewear designer exudes the bohemian elegance of a modern-day Talitha Getty.

Anna Laub

Before launching her swimwear and accessories line, Prism, Anna Laub was a fashion editor, which might explain her keen eye. The Londoner favors minimal, unfussy clothes from Barbara Casasola, Proenza Schouler, and Nicolas Ghesquière–era Balenciaga, to which she adds her own clean-lined eyeglasses, bags, and espadrilles.
