The Montauk Moment: The Best Swimsuits of Summer Are Revealing In All the Right Ways


Model Elizabeth Bennett is most comfortable in a bikini–but is starting to come around to the idea of a one-piece swimsuit. “I have one, and I wear it all the time,” she explains. The 18-year-old model is not alone–maillots are the look of the moment, especially in a classic beach town like Montauk. For her W shoot at The Surf Lodge, Bennett wore a range of swimsuits–from classic one-pieces to sporty bikinis paired with sweaters. It’s the perfect look to ring in Memorial Day Weekend.
