Wildfox Swim, ANK by Mirla Sabino, A.Z. Araujo

We stood in line. We dragged our high-heeled feet across the sand in hopes of getting through our last day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim.
What kept us soldiering on? The promise of menswear.
Male models finally made a long-awaited appearance on the catwalks, wearing printed Speedos, short shorts, and male capris. And while we won't suggest you use their abs to wash your clothes anytime soon, feel free to gawk.
Standout Looks: Plenty of printed one-pieces and cutesy separates.
We could do without:The colorful wigs. They took away from the easygoing vibe of the collection.
The Vibe: Hipster hotties meet Bohemian chic
Cute Factor: How cute is this suit that reads, "Vacation, Get a tan, Swim Forever, Margarita"?
